How to set default sort from Company to Contact (ACT 11 and Win XP SP3)

I focus mainly on persons / contacts and not on companies. Therefore I would prefer a default database sorting sequence: 1. Contact 2. Company

 

I know how to change it manually - but I want it as the "wakeup" sorting scheme!

You could have a plugin to run the following after login; I don't have visual studio in front of me some some of the code may be slightly wrong and some is sudo but:

 

Private Sub AfterLogon handles AfterLogon

'sudo code

'create the sort criteria

dim sCriteria() as new sortcriteria = 'set your sort to your desired oderer (ie contact name etc)

 

'get all contacts and sort it

dim cList() as act.framework.contacts.contact = actapp.actframework.contacts.getcontacts(scriteria)

 

'set thecurrent contact list

actapp.appliactionstate.setcurrentcontactlist(clist)

 

'you may not need this but show the contact detail view

actapp.uicontactmanager.showdetailview

 

End Sub
