Search PINVOKE.NET from IE7

by admin 25. August 2006 16:57

I've recently had to look up a few APIs at http://www.pinvoke.net/ so I thought I'd whip up an OpenSearch description for the site so I can search directly from the search box in IE7.

If you want to add the search yourself just click here.

If you want more info on adding search providers to IE7 then I got my info at http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2005/09/14/466186.aspx but really you just need the OpenSearch specs. It's pretty easy. If you want to browse the descriptor I created for pinvoke.net then it's available at http://www.rikware.com/searchpinvoke.xml.

I also added pinvoke as a search term in the address box so you can simply type "pinvoke searchTerm" to jump to a search. If you prefer that method then install this registry file. Here's the contents for those who are understandably cautious about clicking on random registry files on the net:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\pinvoke]
@="http://www.pinvoke.net/search.aspx?search=%s&namespace=[All]"
