I’m working on a Win 8 Metro app using C++. I’m looking to create a data container class similar to the one you can find in BingContainer.cs – unless there’s already one made by Microsoft?
In a Win 8 Metro / C# app, I can use BingContainer.cs and add a reference to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft WCF Data Services\5.0\bin\Metro\Microsoft.Data.Services.Client.Metro.dll
to make it work. But with C++, I can’t add the reference. When I try, it says that the dll is:
“neither a .NET assembly nor an ActiveX control.”
Is it possible to access the Bing API using C++ under Win 8 / Metro with some help from the data services classes? Or do I need to just make the https request and deal with parsing the resultant XML or JSON myself?
