The IPimSrcContactSummaryCard interface provides a method for customizing Contact Summary tabs of Contact items that are associated with a particular Source Provider.
Source Providers and their associated Source ID's are part of a mechanism that supports per-provider customization of the PIM experience on Windows Mobile devices.
A Source Provider is a custom function that customizes the PIM user experience. Typically, a Source Provider has a corresponding associate function that is responsible for synchronizing PIM data with the Windows Mobile device. Data synchronized with the Windows Mobile device by this associate function is marked with a Source identification tag (Source ID). When Outlook Mobile displays a PIM item, it checks to see if the item has a Source ID. If it finds one, it invokes the Source Provider, which customizes the user interface for the PIM item.
In addition, when the user enters new PIM data on the Windows Mobile device, they will be able to select the Source Provider to use.
|PIM items with a Source ID value of zero just use the default user interface.|
