You need to check the Google and Yahoo developer websites for information on using their services.

I wrote this class to make it easy to do stuff like this. See:

http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/12709/WebResourceProvider-goes-NET

You can use it to encapsulate Google Search or Yahoo Weather (for example) into an object with methods like .GetSearchResults(string query) or .GetWeather(string zipCode) etc.

Thanks a lot for your help
can you write a query example for GetSearchResults(string query)?

Sorry, I don't have the cycles to do this. It should be fairly easy to do this by examining the source of the Google Search Results page.

Hi

Google is easy:

string textToFind="code project";
textToFind=textToFind.Replace(" ","+");
urlToPage="http://www.google.co.za/search?q="+textToFind;
//Do Something to get what you want.

Yahoo is not that simple. Read their developers page to try to understand the api:http://developer.yahoo.com/weather/[^]

Hope This Helps
Jacques
