Opening Web Browsers for Multiple Pages

Opening Web Browsers for Multiple Pages

Question:
I have seen a few tips regarding opening a Web browser using the Run command or using the ShellExecuteA external command.

If I want to open multiple pages one at a time in the same browser window, without creating a new window for each site that it opens, what do I need to do?

Answer:
You need to use the Shell Execute with the Open function:

FUNCTION long ShellExecuteA( long hWnd, &REF String ls_Operation, &REF String ls_File, &REF String ls_Parameters, &REF String ls_Directory, INT nShowCmd ) library 'shell32'

and call the function as:

ShellExecuteA( 0, "open", "www.inquiry.com", & "", "", 5 )
