Controlling Netscape

Controlling Netscape

I’m trying to write an application that loads URLs into the user’s web browser, but it’s based on the shell function and fires up a second Netscape window when the user submits the URL. How do I get VB to just load the URL into an existing Netscape window?

Netscape provides both DDE and OLE interfaces. The documentation on both is located both at Netscape and in the Reference Material area of Ask the VB Pro.
