Thumbs up Searching address book contacts

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
i have to find Blackberry contacts form address book.
for that i am getting by using this code
Code:
ContactList contactList =
        (ContactList)PIM.getInstance().openPIMList

          (PIM.CONTACT_LIST, PIM.READ_ONLY);
now,i have to implement search functionality so for that i have been using loop to find particular contacts in contacts list therefore it has been taking more time(around 5 sec) if contacts are around more than 1000, but in default Blackberry address book search it is taking less time.
so i am looking for API which can give searched ContactList with name, if any one know kindly reply me.
for that i tried one method but i vein.
Code:
ContactList contactList =
        (ContactList)PIM.getInstance().openPIMList

          (PIM.CONTACT_LIST, PIM.READ_ONLY,"name");
i search on net too, but i did not get suitable thread.
looking for soon reply.

Thanks and Regards

Default Searching address book contacts

hello,
I got the solution myself.
I am replying here for others use.
Code:
ContactList contactList =
        (ContactList)PIM.getInstance().openPIMList

          (PIM.CONTACT_LIST, PIM.READ_ONLY);

 Enumeration allContacts = blackBerryContactList.items("your search Name");
it will return only contacts list which will contain your searching Name.
Thanks and regards
