Hi,
I'm developing a addon containing a bar that must be available on each tab.
The bar contains a webcontrol communicating with a web server.
I would to capture the event contained in the web page and capture the events in the webcontrol contained in the bar.
Is it possible for 'ADXIEHTMLDOCEvents' to capture events comming from these two sources?
- The page contained in a IE tab
- The page contained in the webcontrol located in the bar.

Hi Pacifico,

No, it is not possible. 'ADXIEHTMLDOCEvents' works for the active document opened in the IE tab.
Do you use the Web Browser .NET control on the bar?

We have an existing plugin working in FireFox, but in this case the pluging is represented as a web page.
This plugin interact with a web site.

To reproduce the same behaviour is it possible to include in the bar the webbrowser .net control (with limitations I think),we have also to capture the actions done by the user in the page loaded in the webbrowser control.

Or is it better to redevelop a bar using native winform controls?

The best for us will be to have one definition of the inteface exposed by FireFox plugin and the Internet plugin to simplify the maintenance when we add a new feature in the user interface.

Do you have similar request to maintain a plugin in different browser technology?

What is the best approch?

Hi Pacifico,

Both approaches are possible. Add-in Express supports using the Web Browser control on toolbars, explorer bars and advanced bars. Though I would advise you to re-develop it in .NET. In this case the toolbar will have more user-friendly interface.

We support developing plugins for IE only.
