Hi everyone. I am a Delphi Programmer and I have a task to complete of which I have no idea how to do.

I have created an application but now I have to modify the application so that when I click  onto internet explorer IE icon, and type the address e.g. www.applicationname.com, the application must open up and the user can use the application.

i think i need to create a Dll and call that DLL via Internet explorer, but I am not sure.

Any Help of any Kind would be Really appreciated.

Thanks for the help.
you can e-mail me at nmischa2@hotmail.com

Create an ActiveX (ActiveForm) application. Anyway, you will run into security problems, unless you register it at VeriSign (expensive).

If you want catch url you need create BHO
(Browser Helper Object).

If you want "Web Server Application" then you can use CGI (.exe) or ISAPI (.dll), but you cann't use Delphi interface at client, only at server. At client you can use HMTL, and Javascript.
If you mean you want your application to be displayed at IE the same way that it appear on Windows, then use ActiveX as the above experts stated.

For more information and examples of Web Server Applications (CGI, ISAPI) download my EBook.zip and Delphi Programming Guide:

Hi Motaz. I have tried to create an ActiveX form but I cannot seem to get it to work. I don' know if I am doing something wrong or maybe I am missing something. Delphi asks me to set my parameters. all I am trying to do is to allow users to access my .exe by typing www.exename.com.

Please Help or anyone else for that matter.

Thanks alot....Mischa
