;

Func Example()
    Local $oIE, $GUIActiveX, $GUI_Button_Back, $GUI_Button_Forward
    Local $GUI_Button_Home, $GUI_Button_Stop, $msg
    $oIE = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")
    ; Create a simple GUI for our output
    GUICreate("Embedded Web control Test",585, 462, (@DesktopWidth - 219) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 101) / 2, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))
    $GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj ($oIE, 10, 40, 600, 360)
    $GUI_Button_Back = GUICtrlCreateButton("Back", 10, 420, 100, 30)
    $GUI_Button_Forward = GUICtrlCreateButton("Forward", 120, 420, 100, 30)
    $GUI_Button_Home = GUICtrlCreateButton("Home", 230, 420, 100, 30)
    $GUI_Button_Stop = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 330, 420, 100, 30)
    GUISetState()      ;Show GUI
    $oIE.navigate("www.google.lt")
sleep(3000)
    ; Waiting for user to close the window
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $msg = $GUI_Button_Home
                $oIE.navigate("http://www.autoitscript.com")
            Case $msg = $GUI_Button_Back
                $oIE.GoBack
            Case $msg = $GUI_Button_Forward
                $oIE.GoForward
            Case $msg = $GUI_Button_Stop
                $oIE.Stop
        EndSelect
    WEnd
    GUIDelete()
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I know how to make it more advanced. But now I dont know if its possible to make/automate it. Like there is IE functions for example _IELinkClickbyindex etc. How i should make it for this? I tried to use same commands with variables but i get error.

Seems to be possible. Replace

$oIE.navigate("www.google.lt")
with
$oIE.navigate("C:temp")
and see what you get.

Why not? I got a pretty listing of all my files in C:temp.

It depends on what you try to do.
