Add Mulit array to listview?
Can anybody help me with this?
I am trying to add scraped data (title/desc) to listview with htmlagility pack.
Its not working
using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using HtmlAgilityPack;

namespace htmlscraper
   public partial class Form1 : Form
       public Form1()

       private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
           var website = new HtmlWeb();
           var url = website.Load("https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=google");
           var titleTags = url.DocumentNode.SelectNodes("//a[contains(@class, 'yt-uix-sessionlink yt-uix-tile-link yt-ui-ellipsis yt-ui-ellipsis-2       spf-link ')]");
           var desTags = url.DocumentNode.SelectNodes("//div[contains(@class, 'yt-lockup-description yt-ui-ellipsis yt-ui-ellipsis-2')]");

           foreach (var titles in titleTags)
               foreach (var descp in desTags)
                   var titleList = titles.InnerText;
                   var descList = descp.InnerText;
                   string[] arr = new string[1];
                   ListViewItem item;
                   arr[0] = titleList;
                   arr[1] = descList;
                   item = new ListViewItem(arr);

RE: Add Mulit array to listview?
You're querying Google search pages which works a bit differently than other websites because Google does not want people to scrape all of their data for the most part. I haven't tried to query google search results for quite a while now, but you shouldn't need the HtmlAgilityPack anymore either, it's outlived it's usefulness as far as I know -- especially with newer .NET libraries and features/functionality.

Breakpoint through and check the contents of your variables.

What exactly isn't working? :S
