Outlook Contact Form

Does anyone know how to load the Outlook Contact Form which has all the contacts information based on the contacts EntryID in vb6.

Any help would be appreciated.

I can load the contacts by using the code below.

The objItem.EntryID is the actual contacts Outlook ID number

I'm storing the objItem.EntryID as a key in the ListView

What I need to do is dbl-clieck on the desired ListView item and

Get the correct objItem and then do a
objItem.Display
Which will pull up the Outlook Contact Form.



Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim strTemp As String
Dim RecCount As Long


Dim lngLoop As Long
On Error GoTo Main_Error
 
Set objApp = New Outlook.Application
Set objNS = objApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set colAdressFolders = New Collection
Set objFolder = objNS.Folders.GetFirst ' get root-folder

For lngLoop = 1 To objFolder.Folders.Count
    If objFolder.Folders.Item(lngLoop).DefaultItemType = olContactItem Then
        RecursiveSearch objFolder.Folders.Item(lngLoop), colAdressFolders
    End If
Next lngLoop

ListView.ListItems.Clear
LockWindowUpdate ListView.hWnd

RecCount = 0
For Each objFolder In colAdressFolders
    For lngLoop = 1 To objFolder.Items.Count
        Set objItem = objFolder.Items(lngLoop)
        Set itmX = ListView.ListItems.Add(, "K" & objItem.EntryID, objItem.EntryID)
       
        itmX.SubItems(1) = objItem.CompanyName
        itmX.SubItems(2) = objItem.FullName
        itmX.SubItems(3) = ""
    Next
Next
On Error GoTo 0
LockWindowUpdate 0
Exit Sub
 
Main_Error:
   
    MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & ")" & objItem.FullName
    Resume Next
End Sub


Private Sub RecursiveSearch(objSubFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder, colAdrFolders As Collection)
 
Dim lngLoop As Long


If objSubFolder.Items.Count > 0 Then
    'add reference to collection
    colAdrFolders.Add objSubFolder
    cmbAddressBooks.AddItem objSubFolder
End If
 
If objSubFolder.Folders.Count > 0 Then
    For lngLoop = 1 To objSubFolder.Folders.Count
        If objFolder.Folders.Item(lngLoop).DefaultItemType = olContactItem Then
            RecursiveSearch objSubFolder.Folders.Item(lngLoop), colAdrFolders
        End If
    Next lngLoop
End If
If cmbAddressBooks.ListCount > 0 Then cmbAddressBooks.ListIndex = 0
Exit Sub
Errorhandler:
MsgBox "An unexpected error occured methode RECURSIVESEARCH", vbCritical + vbOKOnly, "Problem"
Err.Clear

On Error GoTo 0
Exit Sub
   
RecursiveSearch_Error:
    MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & ") in procedure RecursiveSearch of Module modOutlook"
End Sub

Got it.  That's simple.
Set olkContact = objNS.GetItemFromID(the_entry_id_of_the_Item_from_your_listview)
olkContact.Display
