    How do I Size Internet Explorer Window Programical (VB)

    How do I Size Internet Explorer Window Programically?

    Hi,

    I am making a tool that opens several URLs in different Internet Explorer Instances; Internet Explore does not automatically resize to full-screen so I need to do this programically; How does one do this in Visual Basic? I have Java code that does what I want (see below), but I need a solution that I can put inside a VB application;

    Thank you!

    --Llyal

    (Java Code)
    window.open(url, name, 'left='left',top='top',width='width',height='heigh t',toolbar='toolbar_str',menubar='menubar_str',sta tus='statusbar_str',scrollbars='scrollbar_str',res izable='resizable_str);

    How about a little API education?

    Check out SetWindowPlacement. You get the handle for the window using GetWindow

    Lost?

    (Maybe you can break that really long line for better Lounge viewing...)

    Add a reference to the webvw 1.0 Type Library. You then can do something like this:

    <pre>'pop open browser windows for the frameset
    Dim myBrowser As New InternetExplorer
    With myBrowser
    .Navigate strPath & "jfsIndex.htm"
    .Visible = True
    .FullScreen = False
    .Width = your setting here in pixels
    .Height = your setting here in pixels
    .Refresh
    End With</pre>

    For documentation, well, I haven't found any, other than the limited information in the object browser.
