How to create index database using SDK API?

Postby Arhong » Sat Dec 19, 2015 11:33 am

Hi,

I have tested the C sample with SDK's API, but it seems that it can work after build the index database using everything tool.

So, my questions is how to build index database using API functions?

I have browses all the functions in the file everything.h, but i can not find the proper one.

I am looking forward to your reply.

Regards,

Arhong

The SDK is very limited for Everything 1.3, only providing a simple method to search and get results from a running Everything over IPC.

Everything 1.4 SDK is still limited, but has a little bit more control over the database.
For example, rebuild the database:
[code]SendMessage(everything_hwnd,WM_USER,EVERYTHING_IPC_REBUILD,0);

Notifications when the database is built/available are also available.

See the everything_ipc.h header in the SDK for more information.

There is no SDK methods for changing which volumes are indexed, this is beyond the current design of the Everything SDK.

Thanks, :D

Also, I have another question, could you provide SDK supporting Java?

Thanks again.
