Using the Windows Search Engine through Managed Application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'd like to code an app which provides a search option in the files and directories tree. Are there any .NET classes which do the job?
    In addition, I'd like to filter, somehow, the files in the files tree into categories. (Just like the way we attach "tags" to the posts, then filter them accordingly)

    It is quite urgent, any idea would be appreciated
    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You might try the WSSQL sample here:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd940343(VS.85).aspx

    This shows how to make direct queries against windows search from managed code.


    You can also try the Windows API codepack:
    http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/WindowsAPICodePack
    Using this you can interact with windows search through managed wrappers around the windows shell APIs.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    Hi, you can try Windows API to realize the function.
