Does anyone have a code i can use to add to my internet browsing application that will enable the users to add favourites to a list.

And if posible a snippet which will hide the users IP, so it's anoymous browsing.

 Also does anyone know of a site which supplies graphics, buttons etc. that can be  used in created applications.

Thanks to anyone who replies

I'd look at the favorites files with an editor. You'll see that they are simple text files and can be easily created with VB.

take a look at this for saving/loading favourites:

this is a custom class that allows you to create favourites in one way, there are many ways also but this is one approach which many people have liked, fortunately. If you are referring to normal IE favourites, then its a different story altogether

Excuse me but your response is not correct at all. Favorites files are simple text files Like so:

[DEFAULT]
BASEURL=http://www.google.com/
[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.google.com/
Modified=20D35364DCAAC601F7
IconFile=http://www.google.com/favicon.ico
IconIndex=1
IDList=
[{000214A0-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]
Prop3=19,2

There is no XML even in Vista , nor is there a need to seralize. It's fortunate that I was able to correct your error for this user less you continue to progate this erroneous information.

Cheyenne,

It won't be today because I have a full itenerary.

This is a textfile with fields, some fixed and some user supplied. The developer's job is to figure out what all of the fields are and to respond appropriately. There aren't any large mysteries here.

There is a hextime... I'm wondering if that is not a "file time" datatype. Then there is the ID.. That might be a class id from the registry. I have no idea what the Props are.

The other thing to do is to look at other Favorites files and see what can be learned across the files. Then you can create new ones and study those.

LASTLY I HAVE REMOVED THE CHECKMARK FROM AMHEDILAYAS PATENTLY INCORRECT AND MISLEADING ANSWER.
