Hi, I have a Sidebar , in this sidebar exists a WebBrowser displaying a webpage,
in this webpage i have a javascript to install some web slices for the user, but the script doesnt work because in its context window.external doesn't exist.

Looking around internet I found that you could use WebBrowser.ObjectForScripting to set the external window, if you are using a windows form you can set this property to reference the current form...

but because of the script needs to run under IE8 broswer i believe i need to set WebBrowser.ObjectForScripting to IE window, but I don't know where in Add-In Exprress can I find this IE Window object.

plz helpme.

e.g.

this.HTMLDocument.parentWindow.execScript("alert('hello');","javascript")


should work fine .-)
