Is Contact list real time search listening possible ?
Is it possible on a real time basis to listen to a contact list search ?

Would it be possible to lknow what all keys the user presses as he types and searches the contacts list ?

Are there are any background listeners to make it possible ?

The user would be using the default contact list of the BlackBerry

Any one please ? :?

Is it possible to filter the contacts list in a custom application just like the contact list getting automaticaly filtered as the user types in ?

Or even better , listen to what the user is typing in the Default contacts list ?

You can call the system contacts search screen, if that will help.

See BlackberryContactList.choose() in the javadocs.

I am already using the BlackBerryContactList.choose() method

But it is useful only when the user scrolls through the contacts list where as I am interested in what the user is typing into it

Is there any way I can attach a fieldchangelistener to it ?

Or is there any other way to get that ?

Also can you please say what you mean by "system contacts search screen " and how I can use it ?
