    import com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.quickfind.ui.QuickFindWidget;
    import com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.people.internal.PersonImpl;
    import com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.quickfind.QuickFindResult;

    QuickFindWidget tmpQuickFindWidget = new QuickFindWidget(<SWT Container>, 0) {
    public boolean handleSelection(final QuickFindResult result)
        try {
            Display.getDefault().asyncExec(new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
                try {
                        //Get Search results
                        PersonImpl tmpPersonImpl =(PersonImpl)result.getData();
                        System.out.println(“Display name: “ + tmpPersonImpl.getPerson().getDisplayName());
                        System.out.println(“STID: ” + tmpPersonImpl.getPerson().getContactId());
                    } catch (Exception e){ e.printStackTrace(); }
