Hi
I have some VBA code (used in a custom Excel Ribbon application) which I need the equivalent C# code for (rebuilding it in C# using Visual Studio).
The VBA code is shown below - basically it opens a 'minimalist' browser window  ()ie; without the toolbar etc..

Sub MOSS_ExchangeWiki(control As IRibbonControl)
        MsgBox "The web page will open in a Web browser window", vbInformation, "Opening  webpage..."
          Dim ie As Object
            Set ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.application")
            ie.Visible = True
            ie.Toolbar = False
            ie.StatusBar = False
            ie.MenuBar = False
            ie.navigate ("http://www.intel.com")
            ie.Top = 100
    End Sub

Open in new window


I have only got this far in C#:

public void OpenWebLink(IRibbonControl control)
{
Process.Start(@"http://www.intel.com")
}

Open in new window



Thanks for your help!!

Use either ProcessStartInfo or ShellWindows.

Please do refer: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.diagnostics.processstartinfo.arguments.aspx as well.

found a good solution online:  
 
      public void OpenLink(IRibbonControl control)
        {
        System.Type oType = System.Type.GetTypeFromProgID("InternetExplorer.Application");
        object o = System.Activator.CreateInstance(oType);
        o.GetType().InvokeMember("Navigate", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, null, o, new object[] { "www.intel.com" });
        o.GetType().InvokeMember("menubar", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.SetProperty, null, o, new object[] { 0 });
        o.GetType().InvokeMember("toolbar", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.SetProperty, null, o, new object[] { 0 });
        o.GetType().InvokeMember("statusBar", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.SetProperty, null, o, new object[] { 0 });
        o.GetType().InvokeMember("addressbar", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.SetProperty, null, o, new object[] { 0 });
        o.GetType().InvokeMember("Visible", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.SetProperty, null, o, new object[] { true });
           
        }

Open in new window
