hot to get the status of the explorer bar tip of the day of an IE window

Hi all,

I need to get the status on the tip of the day explorer bar of a IE window, have been looking all over the place, but can't find any info on this subject.

The reason for this is that when the tip is open in a previous IE, and I create a IWebbrowser2 object, and show a new tip of the day explorer bar in this new window, it does not show the content properly, it says "action canceled".

thx

status in this case means if the tip of the day explorer bar is shown or not,
the only way I can figure out to do this is to go throught the menu of IE and see if the submenu is checked or not.

Right now, I can't seem to even go through the menus of IE, I get the top one, then zilch for the rest.

Also would u know of a way to modify the content of the tip of the day explorer bar without having to modify the registry to point to a different filename in this case "tip.htm"

thx

If you want to know if tip of the window is turned on or not then you may try searching for specific key value in registry as flags for all IE options are set in the registry.

>>Also would u know of a way to modify the content of the tip of the day explorer bar without having to modify the registry to point to a different filename in this case "tip.htm"

then why not to change contents of 'tip.htm' file to customize this entirely ? ( on my comp this file located at 'C:\Windows\Web' )
