Hello, guys!

I try to read contacts info in my test app. Names and PhoneNumbers are read normally, but email address is not. Instead, the address number is read.
Here is my code:

`var uri = ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.ContentUri;

        string[] projection = { 
            ContactsContract.Contacts.InterfaceConsts.DisplayName, ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.Number ,
        var loader = new CursorLoader (_context, uri, projection, null, null, null);
        var cursor = (Android.Database.ICursor)loader.LoadInBackground();
        var contactList = new List<Contact> ();
        if (cursor.MoveToFirst ()) {
            do {
                contactList.Add (new Contact(
                    cursor.GetString (cursor.GetColumnIndex (projection [0])),
                    cursor.GetString (cursor.GetColumnIndex (projection [1])),
                    cursor.GetString (cursor.GetColumnIndex (projection [2]))
            }  while (cursor.MoveToNext());

        return new ContactsAdapter (_context, contactList);

Maybe anyone can help me....?

    This is working perfect. Now can you please suggest me how to get the contact's first name, middle name, last name instead of display name?
