Code Samples

Our DLL is so simple in design it takes very little code integration to get you up and running. All standard properties off our BINGWebSearchResults class is documented on here: Web Search API Reference.

Calling The Component

VB.NET
                     Try
					   Dim oBingSearchAPIv5 As New BingSearchAPIv5.BingWebSearch
					   Dim oBingWebSearchResults As BingSearchAPIv5.BingWebSearchResults

					    oBingSearchAPIv5.AccountKey = "YOUR ACCOUNT KEY"
					    oBingSearchAPIv5.query = "Best Bing Web Search API v5 Component"
					    oBingWebSearchResults = oBingSearchAPIv5.getBingWebSearchResults()
                     Catch ex as exception
                        'Catch Exception - All errors will be shown here - if there are issues with the component
                     End Try
C#
                    try {
					 BingSearchAPIv5.BingWebSearch oBingSearchAPIv5 = new BingSearchAPIv5.BingWebSearch();
					 BingSearchAPIv5.BingWebSearchResults oBingWebSearchResults = default(BingSearchAPIv5.BingWebSearchResults);

					 oBingSearchAPIv5.secretKey = "YOUR ACCOUNT KEY";
                     oBingSearchAPIv5.query = "Best Bing Web Search API v5 Component";
					 oBingWebSearchResults = oBingSearchAPIv5.getBingWebSearchResults();
                    } catch (exception ex) {
	                  //Catch Exception - All errors will be shown here - if there are issues with the component
                    }

As you can see above, it's as simple as creating the Bing Web Search API Component, then passing in "YOUR ACCOUNT KEY" provided by Microsoft. Then all you have to do is pass in the query (or search keywords) and provide any optional settings from your ASP.NET page and the BingWebSearchResults class will be fully populated.

Consuming and using the data from the BingWebSearchResults Class

VB.NET
                    For Each oBingWebValue In oBingResults.webPages.value
                                Console.WriteLine(oBingWebValue.displayUrl)
                    Next
C#
                    foreach (void oBingWebValue_loopVariable in oBingResults.webPages.value) {
	                    oBingWebValue = oBingWebValue_loopVariable;
	                    Console.WriteLine(oBingWebValue.displayUrl);
                    }

Every propery listed at Microsoft's Bing Web Search API Reference is available, most of the properties have multiple objects as seen above.

How to test to see if a property exists

VB.NET
                     If Not oBingResults.queryContext Is Nothing AndAlso oBingResults.queryContext.originalQuery.Length <> 0 Then
                        Dim oqueryContext = oBingResults.queryContext.originalQuery
                     End If
                    
C#
                     if ((oBingResults.queryContext != null) && oBingResults.queryContext.originalQuery.Length != 0) {
	                    dynamic oqueryContext = oBingResults.queryContext.originalQuery;
                     }

Some data properties are not populated depending on your query. To prevent errors, always check to see if the propery off the BingWebSearchResults object is populated, before using it as seen above.

Additional Properties

VB.NET
					 Dim json_response as string = oBingWebSearchResults.json_response
					
C#
                    string json_response = oBingWebSearchResults.json_response;
                     
                    

We added the entire json response unparsed. This will allow you to save the entire JSON response as it was received to your database.
