Download the FaveList sample (190k) (file attached below)
Listing and manipulating Internet Explorer Favorites in VB5/6 was quite a code-intensive task. Just getting the Favorites listing itself could be daunting, particularly for a beginner. Automatically updating a displayed list of Favorites was literally impossible without MsgHook or something from Dan Appleman. Things are different regarding listing and manipulating Favorites with VB.NET. Finding the Favorites path itself is greatly simplified, with no declarations required. Listing them in a ListView becomes a simple task requiring little code that's easy to follow. And the automatic updates are a piece of cake. This has all been bundled into a single sample.
