This is a .NET interface derived from a COM coclass that is required by managed code for interoperability with the corresponding COM object. Use this derived interface to access all method, property, and event members of the COM object. However, if a method or event you want to use shares the same name under the same COM object, cast to the corresponding primary interface to call the method, and cast to the latest events interface to connect to the event. Refer to this topic for information about the COM object. For information about the method and property members of the COM object, see _BusinessCardView.

The BusinessCardView object, derived from the View object, allows you to create customizable views that allow you to better sort, group and ultimately view contact items in Outlook as a series of Electronic Business Cards, each of which displays the contact information for an Outlook contact item based on the EBC design associated with the contact item.

Use the Add(String, OlViewType, OlViewSaveOption) method of the Views collection to add a new BusinessCardView to a Folder object.

Use the Filter property to determine which Outlook contact items to display in the view, the CardSize property to specify the size of each Electronic Business Card in the view, and the HeadingsFont to retrieve the ViewFont object for the view. Use the LockUserChanges property to allow or prevent changes to the user interface for the view.
