HI Support Team,

I ran into two problems that it is used to worked on IE7, IE8 but not IE9. I used add-in express premium 2011

1. Open link in new window, for IE9 it is always open new link in new tab even I want to open in new window. I used navigate2 method

2. When I checked Protected Mode, it is always return Proctect Mode off even I manually turn on protected mode on my IE9 browser. I used 'AddinExpress.IE.ADXIEProtectedModeAPI' API to check for protected mode

I used
- VS 2008
- Vista 64 bits SP2

If it is possible, could you please provide sample code how to make these 2 above feature work on IE9


Thanks,
Phuong

Hi,

I did a little bit more research on IE9 and it seems it had 'tab browsing' feature which will override pop up behavior. Is there a way to override tab browsing behavior programmable, i.e. if I want to be able to open an URL in a new window? Of course, I do not want user to change their IE setting.

Thanks,
Phuong

Hi Phuong,

1. This behavior can be changed via IE options (see Tab Browsing Settings).
2. IE should be restarted to refresh the settings in the system registry.

I am afraid no. If I find any solution, I will let you know.
However you can use the code below to open a new IE9 window.

private void OpenURL(string url)
{
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(url);
}

Thanks Sergey,

Your solution above still does not work for IE9 since tab browser feature take precedence on everything. I have to go with IE tab manually setup for now.

Hi Phuong.

I can't reproduce it. The code above always opens a new window.
Please send me a screenshot of IE browsing settings on your PC. I will compare them with mine.
