Hi there,

Can anyone help? I need to be able to launch an IE (or posibly registered browser) with a URL but have the menu, address bar and status bar removed from the windows...

This is similar to what you can do in javascript but i am unsure how i would do this through winforms, Can i pass some parameters to IEXPLORER.EXE or something ...

Any help really appreciated.. a little stuck on this one... in javascript it is quite easy but from c#/winforms... i am stumped..

Thanks in advance

Ian

I dont know any javascript to hide the adress and status bar...
but if you know that you can use this command in your windows form:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("http://www.google.com"); // this will open your default browser.
or
Proccess.Start("iexplore.exe") // this will open iexplore.

and on pageload of your page, u can register startupscript to hide adress and status bar.

hi AlexNek,

Thanks... i am using a special applet (java) thats embedded in a webpage...  and when i put the URL in IE it works perfectly but when I try with the IE wrapper in VS 2003... it seems to work on my machine but on other peoples it doesn't.... I was actually using this method initially.... but because of all the problems i decide to remove it and just load the IE browser as if i clicked on the icon...

I presume i don't need to register Schdocvw.dll on the machne as they have it....  not onlt that i did try regsvr32 the dll and it failed.....

ianinspain,

I don't know about any other command-line options, but you can use the -k option to start Internet Explorer in kiosk mode, which makes it full-screen with no menu, address bar, toolbar, or status bar.
