Re: Spotlight and Leopard


Thanks for your reply. I more mean what has changed in the actual structure
in Spotlight for Leopard. For example, I tried to follow this article: but it seems as if
some of the code has been removed from Leopard (HISearchWindowShow, etc). I
find it rather surprising that there is hardly any up-to-date documentation,
at least in the places I have been looking, for integration with Spotlight.
Any ideas would be very helpful (even if it is just regarding searching for
a file that changes locations in another way).
