I want to create a plug-in for internet explorer in c# .net just like Adobe PDF Reader, Microsoft Office Documents or Alternatiff Tiff Viewer.
When a user types in http://www.someurl.com/somefile.pdf
, IE detects it and spawns Adobe Reader and views the file. Another example is http://www.someurl.com/somefile.doc
, internet explorer detects to spawn Microsoft Word inside IE.
Now, I want to create an application similar to these examples. If a user types in http://www.someurl.com/somefile.myx
('myx' will be my own file extension), it will spawn my .NET application and view the .myx file.
I'm wondering if this is possible with .NET and where can i get information on how to do such application. Thanks in advance!
