how to externally trigger browser event?
Posted on 2000-03-23
Can anyone tell me how to trigger an event in an IE 5.0 document from an external application? I would be happy to trigger an event of my own creation.
I am writing an IE 5.0 application that needs to communicate with another (non-IE) application. The non-IE app needs to be able to tell the IE app to update itself.
I had thought that I would use the on-focus event, but for very complicated reasons, I am not allowed to do so, so I would like to trigger an event in the browser that I can put some code behind so that it can update itself.
Can anyone tell me how to do this?
