Search for buddy in contact list

Reported by: Owned by: nobody
Milestone: Adium X 1.0 Component: Adium UI
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: search contact list Cc:
Patch Status:


I haven't found a way to easily find a buddy in my contact list. I usually need this when I want to set up the events a contact can trigger. At the moment, I have to display my offline contacts and scroll through the whole list until I find the contact I'm looking for. This task is especially troublesome because the contacts are not sorted in anyway (apparently, newer contacts are near the end). It would be very usefull to have a simple search to find contacts in contact list by their email.

  • You can sort your contact list in many ways. See the View menu.
  • The contact list will jump to the contact when you being typing his or her name
  • You can use FIle->New Message as another way to type to find a contact in your list (and then open a message window)

In 1.0 there will be a Get Info for Contact... which allows searching threw the contact list instantly by email or screenname.

I'm looking for this feature too and it could be achieved by using spotlight. It would a lot faster and easier to have a text box to search contacts by mail or nickname, and it would be very nice to have the posibility to embed meta-data to each contact, isn't it?
