Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-223) Add support for iOS contact groups
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2012 21:08:59 GMT


Robert La Ferla commented on CB-223:

I think there needs to be an additional set of API methods for dealing with groups/categories
independent of the individual contact.


  (1) get a list of groups/categories
  (2) get a list of contacts for a specific group/category.

I think this approach can work cross-platform or at least rounds out the current API to give
access to this needed functionality yet maintains some level of platform independence.

> Contacts on iOS are organized by group.  There is the default group "All Contacts" plus
any custom groups that the user set up.  Contacts retrieved by Apache Cordova / phonegap do
not contain which group they are in. 
> I believe that iOS groups are analogous to phonegap contact categories and thus should
be mapped to them.  If not, another property should be created.
> From the Cordova docs:
> "categories: An array of all the contacts user defined categories. (ContactField[])"
> In the iOS AddressBook API, the function ABAddressBookCopyArrayOfAllGroups() gets the
list of groups.
