for Internet Explorer® and Microsoft® .net

Custom Internet Explorer commands

Add-in Express for Internet Explorer eliminates the necessity to realize each command as a separate COM object and register it in a separate registry key. Add-in Express integrates all your commands in one collection (the Commands collection of the IE Module) with its visual designer. Sure, Add-in Express contains command events and registers all commands itself.

Extend Internet Explorer context menus

Just like it does for Internet Explorer commands, Add-in Express provides the same way for extending IE pop-up menus. Instead of realizing and registering each item of the context menu as a COM object, you use the ContextMenu collection of the IE Module. See how to create an Internet Explorer context menu item.

Create your own Internet Explorer toolbars

In Add-in Express, custom IE toolbars are implemented as .NET user controls that realize all necessary functionality. Just add an IE toolbar to your project (via the Add | New Item dialog box), place any controls on the toolbar and add the new toolbar to the Toolbars collection of your IE Module. See how to develop a custom IE toolbar.

Custom Explorer bars

Custom Explorer bars are realized by .NET user controls that you can add to your project via the Add | New Item dialog box of your project. Note, you should register your bar in the Bars collection of the IE Module. See how to build an Explorer bar.
