Please improve the dialog, it should allow to:
- set modality (right now the dialog is not modal!)
- have bidirectional communication, i.e. to have possibility to pass information directly from dialog to task pane and vice versa.
There are many use cases valid for both requirements:
- when you need to retrieve data from task pane (e.g. lazy loading)
- you have html where you fill the content, right now you need to pass them in URL which is not really nice solution.206 votes
Thank you for your feedback, we are happy to announce that the capability to message a dialog from the task pane is now available in preview. Please follow this link to get further information: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/develop/parent-to-dialog
With this API, the task pane can now message the dialog as well, pairing with the existing API allowing the dialog to message the task pane.
- Don't see your idea?
