IE - Get Property of Connecting

Recommended Posts

JohnBailey

I'm looking through the IE include developed by Dale, but I cannot find a way to get the status of the tab in IE7. I looked specifically at _IEPropertyGet(), but I don't know which one gets me the "tab's header." What I'm talking about is in IE7 when you start connecting to a website/page the IE tab displays "connecting..." I need to test for that and then do a timeout of sorts. I'm also curious in general.

Thanks!

Is it necessary to use a "tab"? If not, you can use _IELoadWaitTimeout()...

No, it is not necessary to use a "tab." However, I have a little GUI that acts as an interface for some of the employees here for a site they have to use all the time. It would be nice to be able to pull that info. I can do the same effect with _IELoadWait() or _IELoadWaitTimeout(), but I was very curious if getting the "connecting.." msg was possible.

Thanks anyways though. It doesn't look like anyone knows if it's possible and it's not really important that I know.

I haven't seen an API for that... IE actually tries to not let a document know that it is running in a tabbed environment... as useful as that would be for you and I it could be exploited by hackers and cause all sorts of trouble.

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

I don't know how a document knowing that it is running in a tabbed environment can be exploited by hackers, but I trust you! :)

Thanks

I guess it isn't the "knowing" part, but rather the being able to do something about it part... if you could know that you were in a tabbed env and could do something to activate another tab or affect its behaviour or contents. So if you can't do the later, there is no need to know the former...
