URL Moniker Services

The URL Moniker Services (URLMON) application programming interface (API) in Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET provides an easy-to-use framework for building and using Uniform Resource Locators (URLs).

Asynchronous pluggable protocols allow you to create custom URL protocols, pluggable protocol handlers, Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) filters, and namespace handlers that work with a URL moniker in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.

A URL security zone is a group of URL namespaces that are assigned an equal level of permission, or trust. Each URL action a browser could take that might pose a security risk to the local computer, for example running a MicrosoftActiveX® control, is assigned a URL policy. This URL policy reflects the level of trust given to the URL namespaces in that zone. The URL security zones API allows developers to manage URL security zones and create custom URL security zone managers.

Hit logging allows content providers to collect information about activity on their Web sites. These log entries contain the URL of the resource, the browsing context, whether the information was viewed from the cache, the date viewed, the time that the viewing started, the duration it was viewed, and the custom information. The hit logging API allows Web developers to verify if hit logging is enabled and to write customized entries in the log.

This documentation assumes that you have an understanding of Microsoft Win32® programming and an understanding of OLE and Component Object Model (COM) programming. An understanding of the format and syntax of URLs is also required for using the Internet-related interfaces, methods, and functions. For more information, see RFC 1738, Uniform Resource Locators (URL). You can find this document at ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc1738.txt.
