    Type text = Press button = Display text in Google?

    I made a little app that Searches Google for certain filetypes which i made RadioButtons for.

    What i already have:
    The searchbutton opens Google with this command:
    Code:
    ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=TEXTFROMEDITBOX&meta=" ,NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
    Problems:
    1) The red part should be replaced with the text that you type in the EditBox.
    2) This string should be (invisible) included everytime you type text in the editbox:
    Code:
    -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" ACTIVERADIOBTN "TEXTFROMEDITBOX"
    3) If i Click the Search Button, it should fetch the text from the editbox and the info which RadioButton is checked.


    I know it's kinda lame to ask all this.....but i have no idea where i can learn such specific commands other than from asking people on the forums

    #2 sounds like a candidate for just adding strings together.

    As for the rest, it's plain Windows programming - getting which radio box and fetching the text out of an edit box has nothing to do with what you are doing with the text, and there should be plenty of examples on the Web for dialog boxes that read text.

    By concatenating several strings, some of which are constants, and some of which are the result of your editbox entry.

    A string tutorial might help you on that. There's on one the site!
