Data Type

Description

LookInFolders

Required

String

The path name of the folders that the search will search through. You must enclose the folder path with single quotes.

Return Value

True if the search is synchronous; otherwise, False.

If the search is synchronous, the AdvancedSearch method will not return until the search has completed. Conversely, if the search is asynchronous, the AdvancedSearch method will immediately return. In order to get meaningful results from an asynchronous search, use the AdvancedSearchComplete event to notify you when the search has finished.
