      Hi All,

      PhoneGap(Cordova) Contacts.find() method should be enhanced to have multiple options for filters including wildcard filtering. Besides, there is also a very critical requirement for sorting. Phonebook contacts are usually not sorted and especially after the backup/restore using any App, so at this point the need for sorting is much higher. Without that I am afraid one can use it in any App.

      Moreover, one can't use Divider List functionality of JQuery Mobile.

      I will be very obliged if you make it available asap.

      Regards,

      Jawwad Farooq

        API change/enhancements should start with CordovaJS + mobile-spec and, once tests exist and pass in CordovaJS, issue should be tagged with native components that still need to provide native functionality to enable feature.

        The cordova Contacts API is based on the W3C Contacts API draft spec.

        Wildcards are already supported in the Contact FindOptions filter property.

        Currently there are no provisions in this spec for any sorting functionality. I agree that sorting is a good feature to have, so you've got a +1 from me. I would suggest bringing this issue up in the Apache cordova mailing lists and gather more support for the feature, and possibly submit a pull request with an implementation for faster/more likely inclusion
