I am successfully launching Iexplore from a VB6 Application using the following command:

x= Shell(browserpath & "\iexplore.exe" & " file:///c:\startmnu.htm"), 3)

I would however like to specify the Top, Left, Height and Width of the Browser.  

Any suggestions??

I don't know if there are switches you can run to alter the height of IE, but you could create an instance through code and be able to alter those properties.

e.g.

Dim x As InternetExplorer
Set x = New InternetExplorer
x.Visible = True
x.Navigate2 ("http://www.microsoft.com")
x.Height = 200
x.Width = 300
x.Top = 500
x.Left = 500

sdm395:

This has possibilities but am I missing something???

program gives compile error on DIM X as InternetExplorer because it's an unknown TYPE.

How do I define Iexplore.exe as Type InternetExplorer???

You need to add a reference to 'Microsoft Internet Controls'  (shdocvw.dll)

THANKS!


Works Great!

I had tried adding the Internet "Component" but not the "Reference"
