Pop up capture in Access Web Object

What do I need to change in this code to make a popup appear within the access environment instead of a new internet explorer page?

This link provides more details, the solution there did not work unfortunately.

Private Sub Form_Load()
 
On Error GoTo Err_Form_Load
 
    Me.txtURL = "https://vsr.citigroup.net/virtualsecurityrequest"
 
 
 
    If Len(Me.txtURL) > 0 Then
        Me.ocxWebBrowser.Navigate Me.txtURL
    End If
 
 
 
End_Form_Load:
    Exit Sub
 
Err_Form_Load:
    MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description & vbCrLf & _
        " in " & Me.Name & ".Form_Load_Click", _
        vbOKOnly & vbCritical, "Smart Access Answer Column"
    Resume End_Form_Load
 
End Sub

Open in new window

What do you mean by "a popup in the Access environment"? Are you referring to an IE popup? What's the popup supposed to do?

Yes, I would like to capture an IE Popup within access. The code above loads a webpage within access, but when I click on a link that leads to a popup, that popup always ends up outside of the access environment in a normal ie popup. I need the information in the popup to remain within access so that I can program run some code on it to append a database with user records. http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Access_Coding-Macros/Q_22965154.html gives an example of a webpage you can put in the above code

" Me.txtURL = "insert new webpage here"

That will demonstrate how when you click on the link a new ie webpage opens outside of access.

I'm not sure you can force IE to place the popup in a particular location ... there may be some properties/methods of the WebBrowser control, or a sub-object in that control, but I don't really know.

This links explains the Naviagte method in details; perhaps you could use one or more of the Methods here to get what you want:

You might also try posting a pointer question in the IE section for this (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Internet/Web_Browsers/Internet_Explorer/#browseZones); those guys do a LOT more with this type of thing than do we, and might be able to help.
