ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Identity

public static final class ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Identity
extends Object implements ContactsContract.DataColumnsWithJoins

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.provider.ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Identity


A data kind representing an Identity related to the contact.

This can be used as a signal by the aggregator to combine raw contacts into contacts, e.g. if two contacts have Identity rows with the same NAMESPACE and IDENTITY values the aggregator can know that they refer to the same person.

 Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(uri,
          new String[] {Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME},
          null, null, null);
 Bundle bundle = cursor.getExtras();
 if (bundle.containsKey(Contacts.EXTRA_ADDRESS_BOOK_INDEX_TITLES) &&
         bundle.containsKey(Contacts.EXTRA_ADDRESS_BOOK_INDEX_COUNTS)) {
     String sections[] =
             bundle.getStringArray(Contacts.EXTRA_ADDRESS_BOOK_INDEX_TITLES);
