System_CAPS_pubmethodStartSearch(INavigateToCallback, String)

Indicates that the provider should begin a new search. If the provider is in the middle of a search, that search should be stopped as soon as possible because the results of that search will be ignored. Implementations of this method should move all work to a separate thread and allow this call to return as soon as possible.


Indicates that the provider should stop any current search.

An instance of this type can perform multiple searches during its lifetime. When it will no longer be used, it is disposed.
