BasicFilteredList datasource



In my application I am using an AutoCompleteField to display contacts from my contacts list.

The BasicFilteredList datasource  is defined like this:



_filteredListContacts = new BasicFilteredList(); 
        _filteredListContacts.addDataSource(0, BasicFilteredList.DATA_SOURCE_CONTACTS,
                                BasicFilteredList.DATA_FIELD_CONTACTS_NAME_FULL | BasicFilteredList.DATA_FIELD_CONTACTS_COMPANY,
                                BasicFilteredList.DATA_FIELD_CONTACTS_NAME_FULL | BasicFilteredList.DATA_FIELD_CONTACTS_COMPANY,


The problem is the AutoCompleteField  displays only contacts I have entered into my BB by hand.

The entries coming from the exchange server are not displayed.

I suspect the BasicFilteredList only looks at the default contact list. While probably the exchange entries are put in another Contact list.


Can anyone make some light on this?


P.S: I am using BlackBerry JDE  version My BlackBerry device is a 9700 Bold.
