Smart tag text available thru .Net API without using COM?

Hi,

 

Is it possible to access the SmartTag (Quick Property) text of a selected item thru the .Net API - using just the newer .Net interface without any COM involvment? (I've done this via COM, but want to get away from it) I'm seeing nothing in the API that shows how to get the SmartTagText, like you could access via the InwOpState4 object.. If it's possible, would someone provide a snippet or logic to demonstrate it?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Hi Mike:

 

I dont see smart tags (quick properties) being exposed through the .NET API. But let me quickly confirm and update you.

 

thanks

Hi Mike:

 

Just to confirm, we do not have .NET API which can enable us to access the Quick Properties yet. The only approach at the moment might be to use the COM interop from your .NET application.

 

Sorry if this is bad news for you.

 

cheers

Hi there - has this changed with modifications to the 2013 API? Can we get at Smart Tag/Quick Properties data for an item through .Net yet? (without using COM)
