How do I Iterate thru Outlook Contact properties. The following code works:

            Dim oApp As Outlook.Application = New Outlook.Application()
            Dim oNS As Outlook.NameSpace = oApp.GetNamespace("mapi")
            oNS.Logon("Outlook", , False, True)
            Dim mainFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
            mainFolder = oNS.GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderContacts)
            Dim subFolder As Outlook.Folder
            For Each subFolder In mainFolder.Folders
                If subFolder.Name = TextBoxFolderName.Text Then
                    Dim _Contacts As Outlook.Items = subFolder.Items
                    Dim _Contact As Outlook.ContactItem
                    For Each _Contact In _Contacts
                        Dim istr As String = _Contact.FullName
                        Dim ilb As Object = _Contact.EntryID
                        'HOW DO I ITERATE THRU ALL COLUMNS / PROPERTIES INSTEAD OF STRONGLY TYPING EACH PROPERTY?
                    Next _Contact
                End If
            Next subFolder

Hi, you should have a look at ItemProperties collection.

Here:

Using it you can simply have a collection of properties to iterate on.

Bye!
