Retrieve IE History

Recommended Posts

dantay9

I am moving well with my web browser and seem to have hit a snag. I want to be able to retrieve the internet history for IE. I would be surprised if you could access the history through the IE object because then online Java programs could also access it which is a security risk.

I can navigate to the internet history in windows explorer (C:\Documents and Settings\userName\Local Settings\History), but I don't know how to access it in AutoIt.

I found a C# class that supposedly does what I am looking for here (at the bottom of the page), but I don't know C#. I was hoping someone could test this code and convert it to AutoIt for me or break the code into small segments, telling me what each segment does so hopefully I can convert the code. Thanks in advance!

Just realized it doesn't want to show the replies. You have to google the title and go through google. Because of this, I will just post the class here.

Can someone please tell me how this code works and help me convert it to AutoIt?

OK. Found some working code that does what I want, but I don't know how to convert the ListURLs function into something that will return all the websites. I want to be able to put into a dll file so the current state won't work. I found the code here and can be downloaded here. How would I make the ListURLs function return an array of the urls?
