I have a foxpro form button that when clicks goes out and opens a web page

loIE = CREATEOBJECT("InternetExplorer.Application")
loIE.NAVIGATE(alltrim(webpage))
loIE.VISIBLE=.T.
Then I ask if they want to download the page

I want to be able to tell if the user closed the page before I issue the loIE.quit command.
what is the command?

will download the page from the internet so why are you asking if they want to download?

And what do you mean by "user closed the page"? Does it mean close the IE tab with the downloaded page? Or does it mean user closed the IE application?

OK, I'll try to answer...

If you issue
loIE = CREATEOBJECT("InternetExplorer.Application")
loIE.NAVIGATE2(alltrim(webpage))

DO WHILE VARTYPE(loIE) = 'O' AND loIE.busy
  WAIT WINDOW "IE busy" TIME 0.2
  DOEVENTS
ENDDO

DO WHILE VARTYPE(loIE) = 'O' AND loIE.document.readyState#"complete"
  WAIT WINDOW "Waiting for document" TIME 0.2
  DOEVENTS
ENDDO

loIE.VISIBLE=.T.

You may send the IE window to top of all other windows by calling appropriate Win32API with loIE.HWND as a parameter.

To test if user closed the page you may issue
IF TYPE("loIE.HWND") = "N"
  *-- Page is still open
ELSE
  *-- User closed the page
  loIE.QUIT   &&  THIS DOES NOT WORK NOW !!!
ENDIF
