Is there such a thing?  I can't find any documentation on it (in the DOM).  I can't access my work PC until tomorrow to try it, so I can't verify that it works.  Do you have a link to a reference on this?  Thanks.

Yes, you are right. I was looking at a Delphi control that had it.
And looking at the DWebBrowserEvents2 Interface reference, I see nothing about
how it could be done in VB.

Durn - the only thing I can figure to do is enumerate all of the IE Windows and look for the caption of the one I need.  Can anyone think of a better way?

nope, I know that there is some code, although it's in C#, showing how to capture the Save As dialog
to set save options on www.codeproject.com. That may show a technique that you can use.
Here is the link: http://www.codeproject.com/shell/iesaveas.asp

It's done by installing a Windows Hook.

So, did the OP try to convert the code shown in the link I provided?

EddieShipman,

What is OP?

Thanks for your reply and comment.  The zone this was placed in might have thrown me off.  As I reread this and notice the VB 6.0 reference I realize this isn't for a browser client script solution.  Although your comment doesn't seem to have the "complete" answer I would normally like the code in the link might be just what the Asker needs to get started.  I will change my recommendation.  Hopefully the Asker will post so we can know what the result was.

    Changed recommendation:  Accept: EddieShipman {18800167}

Please post any objections or questions.  Thanks again EddieShipman for your reply.

It was actually cross-posted, here and in VB.  Thanks for explaining OP; I guesses what you meant but couldn't figure out the exact words. :)
