I'm trying to figure out how to select a specific Mapi Folder in Outlook,

load up the search field, start the search and display the results.

Currently I'm able to select the folder and display it but I can't figure

out how to enter text into the search field and start the search.

The folder I'm selecting is a contact mapi folder.

Please see this Live blog entry for clarification on what I'm trying to do.

In Outlook 2007, take a look at the Explorer.Search method, which uses the

same DASL syntax as the AdvancedSearch method, but displays the results in

the UI instead of filling a result set.
