Remarks
The search itself is done by Windows and supports the Advanced Query Syntax. The matching results are mapped to a virtual folder called "search folder". The property SearchFolder contains an ItemIdList to this folder when the search has finished. If the property ShellControlConnector is assigned this ShellControlConnector will be informed automatically when the search has finished. The QuickSearch mode is used per default to provide an automatically search start after the search expression has changed. Please note that a SearchEdit is only compatible with Windows 7 and later. The search indexing service must not be disabled.
