This will find if the browser window is open.

FindWindow("IEFrame", NULL)

it will return a non 0 value if the browser is open, and a 0 value if it is not open.

This will detect the URL that the user is currently at:

HWND Wnd = FindWindow("IEFrame, NULL);
HWND Worker = FindWindowEx(Wnd, 0, "WorkerA", NULL);
HWND ReBar = FindWindowEx(Worker, 0, "ReBarWindow32", NULL);
HWND Combo = FindWindowEx(ReBar, 0, "ComboBoxEx32", NULL);
HWND ComboBox = FindWindowEx(Combo, 0, "ComboBox", NULL);
HWND Edit = FindWindowEx(ComboBox, 0, "Combo", NULL);

int Len = GetWindowTextLength(Edit);
LPSTR Str = new char[Len + 1];
GetWindowText(Edit, Str, Len + 1);


The URL will be returned in Str.
