Hi

this is driving me mad cant seem to find a way of getting the history list of websites visted. Do i have to decode the index.dat file in the history folder if so how do i go about doing this.

The only data i want is the url and title.

The aim is to wrap the method into a dll.

The other way i have thought of doing this is by getting a handle to the browsers address box and frequent checking browser windows.
I can detect ie and find all its child windows but cant get the text back.

code snippets would be greatly appeciated

regards

james
