Add new Methods to NotesUIDatabase and NotesUIFrameSet


Need way to manipulate View->Search this View programmatically. Many users suffer from unfriendly search syntax, for example so find "Lamborgini" user expect to search for "Lambo" and will get no results, while Notes expects "Lambo*" with asterics at end. If we can extend NotesUIDatabase or NotesUIView class to have access to FTSearch window this would be huge improvement and customer satisfaction will rise. 



Same need for UIFrames, Programmatically Collapse/Extend Frames.
