Hai Experts,

How can I retreive the Intenet Settings ( details of Proxy settings.. ) found in the Internet Explorer through a Delphi application?. Is there any Windows API for this?.
Please help...

This might help:



procedure GetDefaultProxyServer(var Server, ByPass: string; var Port: Integer);
const
  BUF_SIZE: DWORD = 500;
var
  ProxyInfo: PInternetProxyInfo;
  Buffer: Pointer;
begin
  GetMem(Buffer, BUF_SIZE);
  try
    if not InternetQueryOption(nil, INTERNET_OPTION_PROXY, Buffer, BUF_SIZE) then
      RaiseLastWin32Error;
    ProxyInfo := Buffer;
    ByPass := ProxyInfo^.lpszProxyBypass;
    if (ProxyInfo^.lpszProxy = '') then begin
      Server := '';
      Port := 0;
    end else with TStringTokenizer.Create(ProxyInfo^.lpszProxy, [':']) do try
      Server := NextToken;
      if HasMoreTokens then
        Port := StrToInt(NextToken)
      else
        Port := 0;
    finally
      Free;
    end;
  finally
    FreeMem(Buffer);
  end;
end;

Use TRegistry.

I think IE's proxy settings are under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

The values in this registry key should tell you everything,
the proxy name, port, whether it's enabled, the protocol..
etc.

Code snippet:
-----------------------------------------------------

type
  TMyProxySettings = record
    Server: string[255];
    Port: integer;
    Enabled: boolean;
  end;

function GetProxySettings: TMyProxySettings;
const
  IE_REG_KEY = 'Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings';
  DEFAULT_PORT: integer = 80;
var
  reg: TRegistry;
  cp: integer;
  s: string;
begin
  reg := TRegistry.Create;
  try
    with reg do
    begin
      RootKey := HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
      if OpenKey(IE_REG_KEY,false) then
      begin
        //get server name & port (usually combined)
        s := ReadString('ProxyServer','');
        cp := Pos(':',s);
        if cp > 0 then
        begin
          result.Server := Copy(s,1,cp-1);
          result.Port := StrToIntDef(Copy(s,cp+1,length(s)-cp),DEFAULT_PORT);
        end
        else
        begin
          result.Server := s;
          result.Port := DEFAULT_PORT;
        end;
        //get proxy enabled state
        cp := ReadInteger('ProxyEnable',0);
        result.Enabled := cp > 0;
        //all done
        CloseKey;
      end
      else
      begin
        result.Server := '';
        result.Port := DEFAULT_PORT;
      end;
    end;
  finally
    reg.free;
  end;
end;

 ... however in answer to your question "Is there any Windows API for this?" the answer is "yes". If you want to investigate InternetQueryOption and rest of the Internet API further can I recommend this link.
