How to show the firt five URL result?


  • Hi,i'm using the API search,but the Api returns a lot of URL,i've need the first five result.

    i tryed with $top=5 in the query but no work.

    Can someone help me?

    function search($searchstr) {
    * Simple PHP application for using the Bing Search API
    $acctKey = 'personal ID';
    $rootUri = '';
    // Read the contents of the .html file into a string.
    $contents = 'vuoto';
    // Here is where you'll process the query.
    // Encode the query and the single quotes that must surround it.
    $query = urlencode($searchstr);
    // Get the selected service operation (Web or Image).
    $serviceOp = 'Web';
    // Construct the full URI for the query.
    $requestUri = "$rootUri/$serviceOp?\$format=json&Query='$query'"; 
    // The rest of the code samples in this tutorial are inside this conditional block.
    // Encode the credentials and create the stream context.
    $auth = base64_encode("$acctKey:$acctKey");
    $data = array(
    'http' => array(
    'request_fulluri' => true,
    // ignore_errors can help debug – remove for production. This option added in PHP 5.2.10
    'ignore_errors' => true,
    'header' => "Authorization: Basic $auth")
    $context = stream_context_create($data);
    // Get the response from Bing.
    $response = file_get_contents($requestUri, 0, $context); 
    echo $response;
    // Decode the response. 
    $jsonObj = json_decode($response); $resultStr = ''; 
    // Parse each result according to its metadata type. 
    foreach($jsonObj->d->results as $value) 
    	switch ($value->__metadata->type)
    	case 'WebResult': 
    		$resultStr .= 
    		"<a href=\"{$value->Url}\">{$value->Title}</a><p>{$value->Description}</p>"; 
    // Substitute the results placeholder. Ready to go. 
    $contents = str_replace('vuoto', $resultStr, $contents);

  • Hi,

      >> i tryed with $top=5 in the query but no work.

    From my experience, $top would work fine. But based on your provided code, I don't see you use it in your URI. In addtion, it seems you have an extra back slash in your URI. Please remove it to see whether it works.
    $rootUri/$serviceOp? \ $format=json&Query='$query'
