How Do I in Contacts
[This is preliminary documentation and is subject to change.]
The topics in this section demonstrate the following Microsoft Lync 2013 Preview SDK contact and group programming tasks:
Search a global address book for a contact.
Request and display current contact presence information.
Change the privacy relationship between a contact and the local user.
Build a collection of contacts as a component of a user interface.
Create custom contact groups and manage group membership.
A local user's contact store resides on Microsoft Lync Server 2013 Preview and is provisioned on a client using an asynchronous pattern where a client submits contact information requests to a server and the server responds with specific information.
Lync Server 2013 Preview can accept a request from a client for a subscription to contact presence. After a successful subscription, Lync Server 2013 Preview sends presence information to a subscribing client after a user republishes presence information. After registering for presence-related events, the local client handles these events without taking any action beyond the initial subscription.
