Hi there,

The subject already says it: is there an api which can search the web and then output the results in a way it can be reat out and listed in a listview for example? I want to program something where the user types a string, presses enter, the application searches the web and then outputs the resoults in a listview whose items can be confirmed with enter or an ok button or similar and the requested website would be opened.

I thougth about making this thing with pb, but if there is a universal dll being able to do it it would be even better smile

Thanks in atvance!

I believe so yes, [this] topic goes into more detail on it. Essentially you can use Googles [Custom Search API] to make your own Custom Search Engine, though results may vary. Another approach would be to build your own [WebCrawler], though for various reasons I wouldn't recommend doing that.

Hi Magurp,

Many thanks for the link! I didn't think you should have a google developer account just for doing a little task, but well I'll look at it in more detail and maybe can get something up and running in near time, I hope. Maybe I'll think about not using google and some other search engine instead, don't know...

You  don't need an account to use the duckduckgo API, might wanna give that a try
