TaskService.FindTask() Method returns a single result

Jan 25, 2012 at 9:26 PM


Two things I wanted to comment on:

1. If calling the FindTask() method, I would expect it to return a collection of results that matched the specified name (or ideally RegEx for consistency with the GetTasks() method). Instead, the FindTask() method returns only a single Task object.

2. Also, an extra overload on the FindTask() method would be nice -- make the searchAllFolders boolean value default to true.

Any thoughts on either of the above points?

Nice work on the library, by the way .. very helpful that I didn't have to write all of this.

Hi David,
           Above you have mentioned that FindAllTasks method is added in 1.7.2 version however I downloaded the latest version 1.8.1 but not able to find the method FindAllTasks. Could you please let me know how to use it.
 Dim ts As New TaskService
        Dim t As Task = ts.FindTask(tname, True)

Thanks in Advance

The FindAllTasks() method is an instance-level method on the TaskService object. You can find it in TaskService.cs if you browse the source control repository for version 1.8.1. See the link below, and search for the text "FindAllTasks".

Hi Trevor,

          How can I use the same FindAllTasks or call FindAllTasks in language. I having issues accessing it or not sure on how to call FindAllTasks in VB.Net language. Thanks Trevor.

The following code lets you cycle through all tasks starting with 't'.

For Each task In ts.FindAllTasks(New System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex("t.*"))
   'Do something with task
