I'm trying to add a System Tray icon that will bring focus to Internet Explorer 7 and tab between all the windows within it. I'm writing this in VB using Visual Studio 2005. My knowledge of both VB and Visual Studio are limited. I've added a 'NotifyIcon' to a form. I don't actually need the form but this is only way I can see do add the notifyicon. I'm then basically activating the IE window and then using a sendkey to tab between the windows. I'm also using a sleep command. This is placed within a simple DO LOOP. My problems are that when I double click the system tray icon my mouse and keyboard freeze. The only thing I can do is press ctrl-alt-del and this allows me to stop the process running. I know that is is caused by the do loop. The other problem is the sleep command. It won't neccesarily tab between the windows at the time period that I set. So if I set the sleep for 2 seconds, It will sometimes quickly move between the tabs and other times it will take many more seconds.
Also, if I run this as a simple .vbs file it works perfectly.
I've attached the code. Please help!
Public Class Form1
Private Sub IE_Tab_MouseDoubleClick_1(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles IE_Tab.MouseDoubleClick
Dim WinFound As String
WinFound = (" - Windows Internet Explorer")
