Detecting whether user is in Instant Search mode (Ctrl-E) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to use Interop or Redemption to detect whether a user has performed an Instant Search to filter the items in their folder(s)?  Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentView.Filter returns null.

    This is necessary as I am switching folders in order to refresh the view after a drag and drop, since this does not release the item, in effect 'freezing' the current view. Ideally I would like to repopulate the search after switching folders too but it may be enough to stop the folder switch workaround when the user is viewing Instant Search results.
