hello there Experts!!!!!

i open the IE application. you know we can hide/unhide the standard buttons toolbar. i want to do that through delphi and api calls.

with the addressbar i can do that with the code below:


where application=the internet explorer application

but there is no such property with the standard buttons toolbar.

i need to be able to hide that button standards menu toolbar and unhide it and i also need a way to know if the button standard menu is shown or not

Hi nikolaosk,

If you opened the application in kiosk mode, (iexplore.exe -k) would that do?

application.toolbar := 0;  // sets off. any nonzero value will set it on
