Description

TpContactSearch objects represent ongoing searches for contacts. They implement the GAsyncInitable interface, so the initialization may fail.

In normal circumstances, after creating a TpContactSearch object, you would connect to the "search-results-received" signal to get search results when a search happens. You would then call tp_contact_search_get_search_keys() to get the search keys, and then do a search using tp_contact_search_start(). When results are found, the "search-results-received" callback will be called.

You can check the search state by looking at the "state" property. If you want to be notified about changes, connect to the notify::state signal, see "notify" for details.

You can search as many times as you want on a TpContactSearch object, but you need to call tp_contact_search_reset_async() between searches.
