Android :: Contact Search With Multiple Parameters

Aug 4, 2010

I am trying to do a Contacts search on Android using Contacts Contract. I would like to search on multiple parameters, e.g. - Where name = myname AND email = myemail AND nickname = mynickname, etc. I have it working w/ just name, but need the syntax to add email and nickname as search params. I know they are stored separately from display name & have a different format. The code below is what is working for the search by just name. How can I add to the selection variable to also search by email and nickname? CODE: String selection = ContactsContract.Contacts.IN_VISIBLE_GROUP + " = '" + ("1") + "'"; selection += "AND " + ContactsContract.Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME + "= '" + cp.name + "'"; Uri uri = ContactsContract. Contacts.CONTENT_URI; String sortOrder = contactsContract. Contacts. DISPLAY_NAME + " COLLATE LOCALIZED ASC"; Cursor myCursor = mApp.managedQuery(uri, null, selection, null, sortOrder);

Android :: Search Market By Using Various Parameters

Feb 18, 2010

This link describes how to search the Android Market for apps using various parameters:
http://developer.android.com/guide/publishing/publishing.html
I'm having a heck of a time figuring out how to format a link for my apps published by my company using this format. For searching by developer name, the doc says to use the following format:
market://search?q=pub:<Developer Name>

It also says it returns exact matches only. My publisher name is "Polyclef Software". I guess I'm wondering why Google can't make a market search feature that searches for substrings in the publisher's name, but aside from that, how am I supposed to format the link? Neither of the following work:
market://search?q=pub:Polyclef Software market://search?q=pub:Polyclef+Software
I've tried a number of variations now and nothing works.

Android :: Google Maps Search - Display Multiple Results?

Mar 2, 2010

I had been showing off the droids capabilities to a co-worker when he asked "how far away is the nearest place to get a haircut from the hotel". At this time we were still at the airport, so I couldn't just say "map of nearest haircut". So I got the map to display the embassy suites, but then couldn't get it to ALSO display places to get a haircut. It was one or the other. I worked on it for about an hour but couldn't figure this one out. Is there a way to display multiple results?

Android :: Unable To Search Contact

Dec 3, 2009

I keep thinking I must be overlooking something, yet I can't seem to get the contact search to work, beyond searching the first name and last name fields. I want to be able to search by organization and nickname as well. This works fine in the browser with Google contacts, but in the phone / contacts app in Android (2.0, Droid), it doesn't work. I could do this search on my Pilot 1000 in 1995. Could a Google search function really be this bad? Tell me it isn't so. What am I missing?

Android :: Search Contact By Phone Number

Sep 14, 2010

In my app, user writes a phone number, and I want to find the contact name with that phone number? I usually search the contacts like this:Cursor cur = getContentResolver().query (ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI, null, null, null, null); But I do this to access all contacts. In this app I only want to get the contact name of the given phone number. How can I restrict the query? Or do I have to go trough all contacts and see if any has the given phone number? But I believe that this can be very slow this way.

But image if I have a huge contact list, it is not enough to just show list but possibility for filtering (by contact's name) is also needed.

Android :: Contact List Transferred In Same Group - Hard To Search Any?

Feb 1, 2010

My HTC Hero was delivered today and I am having problems with my contact list. I have 500 plus names and numbers that have been transferred from outlook to the hero and they have come over in the same groups as in outlook but I need more than that. On my windows based palm top (that I am hoping to replace with the hero) I can search for either a persons name or the name of the company they work for.

About 400 of my contacts are work related and I might only use them once or twice a year and without being able to search for a company name I can not find them. It is further complicated because in a lot of cases a company name might have 3 or 4 different people under it. Does anyone know of a contacts app or upgrade that would give me the functionality that I am looking for?

HTC Magic :: Android Won't Search Company Names In Contact List

Jul 10, 2009

When using the smart search function of the dialer or searching in contacts my Magic only searches numbers and names, not company names.I have hundreds of contacts that are just companies (airlines, couriers, etc. etc.) with no specific contacts at that company.Those contacts are effectively inaccessible on my phone now as the only way to find them is to scroll through the hundreds of blank contacts to find what I am looking for.When I synchronized contacts with my HTC magic, any contact with a company name, but nothing in the 'Name' field had the word 'unnamed' added to the name field.The only work around I can see is to use Outlook to manually add the company name to each of these contacts and then change the 'File As' field to read the company name.

Android :: Reuse Default Droid Contact Search In 3rd Party Application - Possible?

Jul 14, 2010

At the moment I am trying to evaluate if it is possible to reuse the android contact search in a 3rd party application.

I got the problem that I have to implement a contact list/picker including a filtering possibility for the contacts list. That means that the standard android picker opened by an intent does not help me. So I decided to implement the list/picker on my own which is not that difficult. But I need to be able to offer the android search dialog in my own implementation as well.

So is it possible to reuse the standard contact search mechanism in an own application? (the contact search available e.g. in the default contact list) Or do I have to implement this one on my own?

Android :: Contact Info Shows Multiple Gmail Entries

Dec 26, 2009

In my gmail account in my browser (desktop computer), I go to contacts and I see one entry for myself. It has all the info I want in it (I just added my address).When I go to my droid and find myself in the contact list, I see several sections that begin with "from blah@gmail.com" where it's my email address.Why isn't it only one big section instead of looking like it found my contact info multiple times in my gmail account requiring multiple sub-sections? How come I don't see my address in any of these sub-sections?

Samsung Fascinate :: Contact Search And Group Organization

Sep 27, 2010

Some help please.

1) Is there a way to load the keyboard when in contacts to type in the person's name to do quick searches instead of clicking the letter on the side or scrolling all the time?

2) When groups are created in Google contacts through gmail, it will appear on the phone, but it will not list the contacts in that group on the phone as it does on gmail's contacts. When trying to do it on the phone itself, when click on add contact for the group, it only lists contacts that are not assigned. How to I configure this?

Motorola Droid X :: Contact Search Results Not Working Correctly?

Oct 6, 2010

When I click on the search button (magnifying glass), type in the name of a person I am looking for in my contacts, I come up with a list of people who match what I have typed. On my droid, I could then click on any of the results to bring up that persons contact information. On this phone, it flashes the contact information for about a 10th of a second then goes back to my search results. I can get the contact information by clicking on the icon for that person, then selecting the contacts icon that comes up below. Is this something that is going on with my phone only or are others having this issue also.

Motorola Droid :: Enable Contact Picture When Using Voice Search?

Jan 1, 2010

The majority of my contacts have pictures associated with them. When I use Google Voice Search to call a contact (e.g. "Call Wendy Home" [my wife]), the contact is found and the number is dialed successfully, but the picture doesn't show on the screen (just the android image). However, if I look her up in contacts and make the call, or receive a call from her number, the contact image is displayed. Is there a setting that needs to be made to enable the contact picture when using voice search?

Feb 25, 2010

I keep notes on many of my contact and I would like o be able to recall a contact by a search that would include the notes. For example, lets say I get to talking to someone e at the airport. We get to talking and find he is big into ATV's. He's looking for a riding partner so he tells me to give him a call the next time I go. I store his name as Bob and in the notes I put ATV. later I want to look him up but only remember the ATV part. As far as I can tell the search doesn't include the notes. Is there a way to do that.

HTC Droid Eris :: Multiple Numbers For Contact

Mar 1, 2010

When I bring up the list of contacts in the Phone app (not the People app) it shows left and right arrows. However, they don't do anything.So if I want to use a different number for a contact (ie home vs cell) I have to actually hit the Rolodex icon and then select the number.I n every other phone I've had one could always select which number to call. Of course there is always the default number chosen when first setting up the contact.So how does one do this from the list in the phone app?
