Hello !

I have a project controlling IE. So far it works fine.
Now I want to add a second instance (or even several).

I was wondering if I can put them all into an array (and how).

Thank you for any idea !

Susan
Dim test(3) As String; <- works
 
Dim WithEvents o_IE As InternetExplorer;<- works too
 
Dim WithEvents o_IEarray(3) As InternetExplorer ,<- does not (syntax error, expecting AS)

Should be:
Dim o_IEarray(3) As InternetExplorer

If you have an array of InternetExplorer's, don't use WithEvents, but add your event handlers with AddHandler.

Also, I would use a generic list, of type InternetExplorer....

        Dim IEList As New List(Of InternetExplorer)
        Dim IE As InternetExplorer '= however you get the IE object
        AddHandler IE.DocumentComplete, AddressOf IE_DocumentComplete
        IEList.Add(IE)

...where IE_DocumentComplete is the routine to handle the DocumentComplete event of the IE object.

Thank you, elimesika, for your help about raising events in VB6.

On http://www.codeguru.com/columns/vb/article.php/c6557 I did not find, how to receive an event (normally a function is been called when an event raises).  

Do you have any idea how to dim an array of browsers with events, like

Dim WithEvents o_IEarray(3) As InternetExplorer

???
