    Wild script trick

    I was stunned when my Search pane opened and displayed a navigation tree at http://www.codecipient.com/. The page used this script to impersonate the user clicking a hyperlink to open a document in the Search pane:

    <SCRIPT ID=clientEventHandlersVBS LANGUAGE=vbscript>
    Sub window_onload
    aTreeLink.click()
    End Sub
    </SCRIPT>


    This depends on the user running IE, since other browsers do not run VBScript, but that's probably okay, since other browsers probably do not have a _search target for URLs.

    Have you tried using Mozilla? Multiple tabs are very useful for browsing through Lounge threads, and it has a built in pop-up/pop-under killer feature. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Someday I will get around to trying the new browsers. Just maximizing the software I have is pretty time-consuming. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Amen to maximisation. FWIW Mozilla actually saves me time compared to IE. (I have left the Windows defaults unchanged, thus clicking on a non-Mozilla link will bring up IE.) Netscape 6.2 I have banished, like 6.1 and 6.0; clunky.
