TC12, Outlook16 - select folder does not work

Hello

Need to set current selected folder in Outlook 16 (and 13).

The folder is a subfolder of Inbox.

With TC11 I could do it the following way (JScript😞

 

var folder = 'TestFolder';
var folderObj = outlook.GetNamespace('MAPI').Folders(EMAIL).Folders(INBOX_FOLDER).Folders(folder); outlook.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder = folderObj;

In TC12 it doesn't work.

 

What I tried is (JavaScript😞

 

  const folderObj = outlook.GetNamespace('MAPI').DefaultStore.GetRootFolder().Folders.Item(EMAIL).Folders.Item(folder);
  const ex = outlook.ActiveExplorer();
  ex.CurrentFolder = folderObj;

 

Variables valuse after first 2 lines, before the third:

vars_dump_tc12_problem.png

After executing the third line an error occures:

 

JavaScript runtime error.
The operation failed.

Reproduces on both Outlook 16 and 13.
win10 x64, Office 32-bit
Please help in resolving the matter.

We've figured out ourselves how to implement that in TC12.

 

 
outlook.GetNamespace('MAPI').DefaultStore.GetRootFolder().Folders.Item(folder);
outlook.Application.ActiveExplorer().SelectFolder(folder);
const currentView = outlook.Application.ActiveExplorer().CurrentFolder.CurrentView;
currentView.Reset();
currentView.Apply();

Hope it will save time for somebody.
