Anyone have experience with Shell32.dll? need to get file keywords.

P: n/a
I am trying to get from files the keywords saved as part of the properties
under the summary tab. I am able to get the Title, and Comments using the
following code but I need to get the keywords as well. Also does anyone
know how to use shell32 to search the keywords? Any help would be greatly

Imports Shell32

Imports Shell32.ShellFolderItemClass

Imports Shell32.ShellClass

Public Class testFSOReport

Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

Dim pFolderItem As Shell32.FolderItem2

Dim pVerbs As Shell32.FolderItemVerbs

Dim pFolder As Shell32.Folder

Dim pShell As New Shell32.Shell

Dim i As Integer

Dim arrHeaders(45) As String

pFolder = pShell.NameSpace("C:\")

For Each pFolderItem In pFolder.Items

For i = 0 To 44

arrHeaders(i) = pFolder.GetDetailsOf(pFolderItem.Path, i)


For i = 0 To 44

pVerbs = pFolderItem.Verbs()

Response.Write(arrHeaders(i) & " - ")

Response.Write(pFolderItem.ExtendedProperty(arrHea ders(i)))




end sub

end class
