Constructor


SpotlightQuery.Constructor([query as String])

Creates a SpotlightQuery object, optionally with the passed query. If not passed, it defaults to no query.

Example

The following synchronous query populates a ListBox with the list of audio files on the user’s computer and the absolute path to each file. You can put the code in a PushButton.

Dim query As New SpotlightQuery("kMDItemContentTypeTree == 'public.audio'")
query.Synchronous = True
query.Run
For i As Integer = 0 To query.Count - 1
ListBox1.AddRow(query.Item(i).File.DisplayName)
ListBox1.Cell(ListBox1.LastIndex, 1) = query.Item(i).File.NativePath
Next

Exception e As SpotlightException
MsgBox("A Spotlight error occurred.")
