XP Style with WebGadget ?

Post by PyroStrex »

Sorry if this was asked before. Like before, i've been searching for the whole forum about this. I think i didn't use the correct keyword if this is already exists before. So, how can i do it? Do anyone here have any idea how to do this?

From the manual
'Flags' is an optional parameter and can be composed of one of the following constants:
#PB_Web_Mozilla : Uses the Mozilla ActiveX instead of the IE one (Windows only).

You'll have to specify the path
to the OCX yourself by using

Code: Select all

Result = WebGadgetPath(LibraryFile$ [, MozillaPath$])
See the helpfile on that one :)

This only works for his own sites, not for regular ones. Though you can access the IE interface and inject code but seems a little overkill.

Shure, I assumed he was using his webgadget for his own files or strings, not for browsing the web :o

He doesn't say but if it's only for him he should be fine with your fix.

Ok, but be aware of security issues :shock: (unresolved), click on a link in your browser will open in a new
window(unresolved), script error debugging always on (resolved?) etc.
