I have an xl-based system for 'clipping bits' of web pages to create images.
To avoid copyright issues, I must be certain of the url of each image that is 'clipped'.

Currently -  I pre-identify the url and call it:
    Set oIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.application") (or via google)
    oIE.Visible = True
    oIE.navigate ("http://bbc.co.uk")
    oIE.Visible = True
    oIE.AddressBar = 0
    oIE.StatusBar = 0
    oIE.Toolbar = 0
    oIE.MenuBar = 0

Then make snapshot to get the graphic:
    Call keybd_event(VK_SNAPSHOT, 0, 0, 0)
- then crop it.

QUESTION:
Although I suppress the oIE. 'bars' (code above), I cant disable any navigation tools that are built into the WEB PAGE from being used to navigate to other pages.

Is there a way of disabling navigation tools that are built into individual WEB PAGES?


Thanks!
