Loading a specific contact in edit mode



I have a very simple thing to do, but I can't get it to work... I would like to open the address book application to a specified contact, opened in edit mode.  Is it possible? How can I achieve that?


Thanks in advance

Re: Loading a specific contact in edit mode

You can use the Invoke class to launch the Address Book application.  Pass in an AddressBookArgument that includes the contact you wish to display.  This sample can be used as an example of how to read a contact (that you could then use in the AddressBookArgument).
