SearchResult Class

This section provides an overview of the SearchResult class and discusses: SearchResult class methods

The SearchResult object represents a specific search result (that is, a document) in a SearchResultCollection object. Because the SearchResult class is a generic interface class, a search engine-specific subclass is required. The SearchResult object is defined to comprise 10 standard attributes (or “properties”)—for example, title, URL, summary, and so on. These private, read-only “properties” can be accessed only through the methods of the SearchResult class.

A SearchResult object is instantiated by the First, Item or Next methods of the SearchResultCollection.
