hi... i'm relatively new to outlook task creation from visual basic. hope someone can help me... when i create an outlook task, i want to insert a link with a custom string... e.g. please see screenshot:

instead of the left screen, i would like to come up with the right screen. any help, tips or sample code would be highly appreciated... thank you very much in advance.

by the way, i'm using visual studio 2005, microsoft outlook 2003 and outlook interop from outlook 2003.

Imports xOutlook = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim xOutlookApp As New xOutlook.Application
        Dim xNameSpace As xOutlook.NameSpace = xOutlookApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    End Sub

    Private Sub CreateTaskItem(ByRef xOutlookApp As xOutlook.Application)
        Dim xNewTask As xOutlook.TaskItem = CType(xOutlookApp.CreateItem(xOutlook.OlItemType.olTaskItem), Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.TaskItem)

        xNewTask.Subject = "My Task " & Now.ToString
        xNewTask.PercentComplete = 50
        xNewTask.StartDate = Date.Now
        xNewTask.DueDate = Date.Now.AddDays(5)
        xNewTask.Status = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.OlTaskStatus.olTaskInProgress
        xNewTask.Complete = False

        '''' setting the task body
        xNewTask.Body = "Click <a href='http://www.google.com'>here</a> to view google." _
            & Environment.NewLine & Environment.NewLine _
            & "Test... http://www.google.com"

    End Sub

End Class
