InternetExplorer - Explorer Bar Panes

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Does anyone know how to activate panes in internet explorer; panes like History and Favorites.

the following code will "create" an IE Obj and show it, but how do I make a pane visible/activated?

$oIE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application)
$oIE.visible=1
$oIE.navigate('www.autoitscript.com')

I believe the method you want is showBrowserBar

$oIE.ShowBrowserBar ("{30d02401-6a81-11d0-8274-00c04fd5ae38}", True)

Dale, you wouldn't happen to know where I get more Browser Bar Class IDs pertaining to the "local explorer" (http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=55648)

The following works, but I'd like to find out more

$oShell = ObjCreate("shell.application")   ; Get the Windows Shell Object
If Not IsObj($oShell) Then
    MsgBox(0,'','Not Obj')
    Exit
EndIf
$oShellWindows=$oShell.windows 
$oShellWindows.Item(1).visible = 1
$oShellWindows.Item(1).ShowBrowserBar ("{30d02401-6a81-11d0-8274-00c04fd5ae38}", True)

FOUND IT! http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb774150.aspx

Dale! I've been looking SOOOOO long for it! Thank you for getting me on the right track. Now, I know them both!

EDIT

Dale, do you know what the function is to find out / get if the browser bar is open in the IE object?
