Regarding getting contacts from ACT contacts


I have a plugin application which retrieves the current contact's details with the following code:

private ActApplication application;

When my application is loaded, I can get the contact's details to my application.

Can you please let me know whether there is an event triggered or file created in ACT when the user selects a different contact as the current contact?
For example, when my application is already opened and if the user goes to the ACT interface and changes the current contact, my application should be able to identify the change and show the new contact as the current contact on my application without the user closing and re-opening my application.

I would really appreciate if someone could help me with this.

Thanks in Advance!!

Re: Regarding getting contacts from ACT contacts

There is a current contact changed and changing event that fires when you navigate between contacts. 


Both of these and other events related to changes being made can be found under the Act.UI namespace, the reference document included in the SDK is probably the best place to see them all in one place so you can decide which is best for your plug-in.
