ContactsContract.SearchSnippets

public static class ContactsContract.SearchSnippets
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.provider.ContactsContract.SearchSnippets


Additional column returned by Contacts.CONTENT_FILTER_URI explaining why the filter matched the contact. This column will contain extracts from the contact's constituent Data items, formatted in a way that indicates the section of the snippet that matched the filter.

The following example searches for all contacts that match the query "presi" and requests the snippet column as well.

 Builder builder = Contacts.CONTENT_FILTER_URI.buildUpon();
 builder.appendPath("presi");
 // Defer snippeting to the client side if possible, for performance reasons.
 builder.appendQueryParameter(SearchSnippets.DEFERRED_SNIPPETING_KEY,"1");

 Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(builder.build());

 Bundle extras = cursor.getExtras();
 if (extras.getBoolean(ContactsContract.DEFERRED_SNIPPETING)) {
     // Do our own snippet formatting.
     // For a contact with the email address (president@organization.com), the snippet
     // column will contain the string "president@organization.com".
 } else {
     // The snippet has already been pre-formatted, we can display it as is.
     // For a contact with the email address (president@organization.com), the snippet
     // column will contain the string "[presi]dent@organization.com".
 }

DEFERRED_SNIPPETING_KEY

added in API level 21
public static final String DEFERRED_SNIPPETING_KEY

The key to ask the provider to defer the formatting of the snippet to the client if possible, for performance reasons. A value of 1 indicates true, 0 indicates false. False is the default. When a cursor is returned to the client, it should check for an extra with the name ContactsContract.DEFERRED_SNIPPETING in the cursor. If it exists, the client should do its own formatting of the snippet. If it doesn't exist, the snippet column in the cursor should already contain a formatted snippet.

Constant Value: "deferred_snippeting"

SNIPPET

added in API level 21
public static final String SNIPPET

The search snippet constructed by SQLite snippeting functionality.

The snippet may contain (parts of) several data elements belonging to the contact, with the matching parts optionally surrounded by special characters that indicate the start and end of matching text. For example, if a contact has an address "123 Main Street", using a filter "mai" would return the formatted snippet "123 [Mai]n street".

Constant Value: "snippet"
