Show a Contact in plugin using string of GUID

Hi: I'm wanting to show a Contact in ACT! using a string containing the GUID that I get through a text file I read in the Plugin.

 

What is the best way to move to and show that particular Contact using the string value?

 

Thanks!

Re: Show a Contact in plugin using string of GUID

I've noticed that, sometimes when I post a question here, I finally figure out the answer on my own!

 

Here's the answer:

 

            Dim guids(0) As Guid
            guids(0) = New Guid(StringOfGuid)
            Dim cContactU As Act.Framework.Contacts.Contact = Nothing
            cContactU = _actapp.ActFramework.Contacts.GetContactsByID(Nothing,guids)(0)
            _actApp.UIContactManager.ShowContact(cContactU)
            _actApp.Update()

 

Sorry to bother you all - have a great day!
