Hello all,

I am looking for way to open an IE window with options (such as toolbar=1; width=n; etc.) from a Java application. I am aware of Runtime.getRuntime().exec(proccess, url), however IE has a limited choice of command-line parameters.

Thanks!

Unless the browser supports specifyinf options via the AppletContext.showDocument(URL url, String target), there is no way. AFAIK IE does not support this, nor does any other browser on the market or the Java Plugin.

Furthermore, in order to be able to execute Runtime.exec() from inside an applet, the applet jar has to be signed or the security policy (a wholesale change) needs to be modified in order to allow this.

try this...

Runtime.getRuntime().exec(new String[] {"/usr/mozilla/mozilla-bin", "file:///help.html"});    

OR

Runtime.getRuntime().exec(new String[] {"/usr/mozilla/mozilla-bin", "-remote", "openurl(file:///help.html)"});

or try this..
