IPimSrcContactListIcon methods PPC SP Description
Paint X X Enables a Source Provider to draw an alternate icon for its associated Contact items when they appear in the Contact list view.


Source Providers and their associated Source ID's are part of a mechanism that supports per-provider customization of the PIM experience on Windows Mobile–based devices.

A Source Provider is a custom function that customizes the PIM user experience. Typically, a Source Provider has a corresponding associate function that is responsible for synchronizing PIM data with the Windows Mobile–based device. Data synchronized with the Windows Mobile–based device by this associate function is marked with a Source identification tag (Source ID). When Outlook Mobile displays a PIM item, it checks to see if the item has a Source ID. If it finds one, it invokes the Source Provider, which customizes the user interface for the PIM item.

In addition, when the user enters new PIM data on the Windows Mobile–based device, they will be able to select the Source Provider to use.

Note   The default user interface is used if the SourceID is zero, or if the SourceID is not registered, or if the Source Provider function causes an exception.
