No OnSelectionChange, OnFolderSwitch for Search Folders?

I'm working on an Outlook add-in written with Add-in Express 2.2.0 and Delphi 7.1 Architect. I've noticed that selecting a search folder in OL 2003 doesn't trigger On SelectionChange, OnFolderSwitch, or OnViewSwitch, although selecting any other type of folder does. When the user selects Personal Folders I'm disabling some buttons that I need to enable for the search folders, but if the user selects Personal Folders and then selects a search folder I don't know that the selection has changed. Is this a bug or working as designed? How can I detect such a selection change?

Thanks,
Jack

Hello Jack,

Strange. I have just tested and got BeforeFolderSwitch, ViewSwicth, FolderSwitch and SelectionChange events. The SelectionChange event is not fired if the Search Folder has no items.

Another point.
There are a lot of causes. For example:

Hi, Dmitry -

OK, must be something I'm doing, then. I'll keep looking.

Thanks,
