receiving an event when IE changes URLs

Is it possible to write an ActiveX control that receives a URL changed event any time the IE browser in another window changes its URL?

I know the IWebBrowser interface publishes an event called NavigateComplete2(pDisp, url) - but thought this interface was used only for use as a container.

I would like to write an ActiveX control that sits in one window of IE and receives events about changes in a second window.

Let me know if you have any thoughts or ideas.

Thanks.

How about using the Javascript OnLoad event?

The JavaScript OnLoad() event can only be hooked if it appears on the HTML page that is loading.  I need to catch the change event from another window of the browser.  This window is not necessarily under my control - so JavaScript is out of the question.

My hope is to have an ActiveX control that hooks events coming from the browser.

Look into the following KB article. The method allows you to capture the events fired by any newly created IE4 window.
