We use an LDAP lookup against our AD for a contact source - which returns users as expected.
When we try and add as a contact although we can see the "display name" is coming across from AD (as it is listed in the search results) when we right click and Add Contact the display name field is blank and not the "display name" as shown in the results - I have attached an image to explain what I mean.
It would be very nice if the "display name" field is carried across when we add contacts from LDAP as well

Subject: [jitsi-dev] Re: [PATCH] Filling the display name field when adding contact from external source
Thanks for the patch!
I've just tested it and it's really very useful!
However, before committing it to trunk I wanted to ask you to add something to it if you don't mind
Currently the display name field is filled with the contact address whenever there's no display name available. I think that we should leave it empty instead of duplicating the contact address in such cases. WDYT?

When contacts are added from external source (Google Contacts for example), the display name field in the form for adding the contact is always empty. I changed the code to get the display name from the source contact and pass it to the form.
The change can be tested if you search for contact, which doesn't exist in the jitsi contact list and exists in any of the available external sources, from the main window. Then you should press the Add button. In the add contact form the display name should be filled if it is available.
I'm attaching the patch.
