Opera Browser - GetClassName!
I am trying to get the ClassName of the Opera browser and then read the url from the address bar but I can't seem to get the name of the address bar. What is it? I am using Spy++ and no luck. Other browsers' address bars are typically called "Edit" but not in Opera.

Declare Function GetClassName Lib "user32" Alias "GetClassNameA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal nMaxCount As Long) As Long

AOL, Netscape And Opera
I need help people.

I need to delete the history of those browsers.
Most important is AOL because I have no way
of obtaining a copy to check for myself...

I need to clean the cahce, cookies, history and location bar history.

How to do it...
Please concentrate on AOL the most...

I need it full, I need to know how to find where is it installed...
So if you can tell me in what key in the registry does it keep
the paths to the cookies and other relevant folders....
I hope you understand what I mean....

If you can help me with other two browsers it would be great,
but the AOL is most important of those three....

Thanks in advance!

A Tab Control Or A MDI Form (like In Opera)?
In Opera or Opra, they have a seperate tab control for each browser window. I want to create the same effect. I load a new form at runtime, and I want the user to be able to switch among those forms using the buttons at the bottom. At this time, I have a MDI form which has a toolbar at the bottom, and I load all the child forms in the that MDI form with the borderstyle of "No Border".
Is that how I am supposed to do or is there any other way to create this kind of effect?
I first tried to use a tab control but it might mess up some styles in Windows XP.

Interaction With FireFox
Hello, I'm making a program that navigates (with a WebBrowser control) and parses a site. For the same site I've found a FireFox extension that introduces some new functions that I don't have in my program. Is possible to interact from my program to FireFox, so i could save a lot of time and not rewrite all the extension's functions to VB6? Thank you!

Simulate FireFox!
One of the similarities between the web browser I created & FireFox is that users can add any no. of tabs within the same window. I have already implemented this feature in my browser but there's a problem.

When FireFox is first opened, there aren't any tabs (same is the case with my browser). Assume that a user visits a website, say, At this point also, there are no tabs in FireFox.

Next the user adds a new tab (by navigating to File--->New Tab menus). Note that is already loaded in FireFox. Now when the user adds a new tab, becomes the first tab & a blank page gets added as the second tab.

How do I incorporate this functionality in my browser?

Note that I am using a SDI Form (& not a MDI Form) to create the tabs within the same window.

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to create an interface similar to the one in Mozilla Firefox with the tabbed webpages, but I'm having a few problems. I can't get the tabs to look the same.

Can't Close Mozilla FireFox!!!!
I'm in a school computer laboratory and we only use FireFox for browsing the net. But there are times when we don't let our students to browse the net i.e. when having VB or other classes in the lab. I have the code below:

VB Code:
Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As LongPrivate Declare Function PostMessage Lib "user32" Alias "PostMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As LongConst WM_CLOSE = &H10 Private Sub Command1_Click()    Dim winHwnd As Long    Dim RetVal As Long        winHwnd = FindWindow("MozillaWindowClass", vbNullString)    If winHwnd <> 0 Then        PostMessage winHwnd, WM_CLOSE, 0&, 0&    End IfEnd Sub

it can close any window that has the Class name specified (i use a 3rd party software to get the app's class name). I am having a problem with Mozilla FireFox since I cannot close it when its "fully" loaded. with the code above, it can close FireFox only when it is still loading. any ideas?

Creating An Instance Of Firefox
To create an instance of Internet Explorer in my application I've been using the CreateObject function like this:

Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

Now I want to create an instance of Mozilla FireFox in the same way. I have the Mozilla Browser control but that only allows me to make my own version of Mozilla and not an actual instance of the programme.

Is it possible to do what I want to do? Maybe I just need to change the "InternetExploer.Application" part to something like "MozillaFirefox.Application".

Any help would be much appreciated.
