SearchScope Interface

Corresponds to a type of folder tree that can be searched by using the FileSearch object.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Core
Assembly:  office (in office.dll)

public interface SearchScope : _IMsoDispObj

An example of a single search scope is the local drives on this computer. Network folders and Microsoft Outlook folders are also separate search scopes that may be available. Each SearchScope object contains a single ScopeFolder object that corresponds to the root folder of the search scope.

Use the Item property of the SearchScopes collection to return a SearchScope object.

Ultimately, the SearchScope object is intended to provide access to ScopeFolder objects that can be added to the SearchFolders collection.
