OfficeJS.dialogs version 1.0.8

I have recently updated the OfficeJS.dialogs to version 1.0.8. I have also updated the Node Package Manager version as well. You can get it by running the following command in the VSCode Terminal Window:

npm install officejs.dialogs

With this latest version comes a few bug fixes, some cleanup of the code, cleaner JSDoc documentation and a PrintPreview dialog. The PrintPreview started out as a proof of concept but it actually works for me – in the browser anyway. I am not sure how well it will work in any of the full clients as I have not tested it there yet. If anyone has a chance to test it, please let me know if you encounter any issues.

Here is a sample of the PrintPreview dialog:


Here is some code to implement it:

// this example takes the currently composed email message in Outlook,
// grabs its body HTML and then displays it in the Print Preview dialog.
var mailItem = Office.cast.item.toItemCompose(Office.context.mailbox.item);
mailItem.saveAsync(function(asyncResult) {
var id =;
mailItem.body.getAsync(Office.CoercionType.Html, { asyncContext: { var3: 1, var4: 2 } }, function(result) {
var html = result.value;
PrintPreview.Show(html, function() {
Alert.Show("Print cancelled");
