Hi,

I am new to this forum. I need to invoke IE browser from VB or Vbscript by passing a URL. for subsequent call i need to open a new tab of existing IE browser but for me a new instance of IE window gets opened. I even changed the settings in IE 7.0 but all in vain. Appreciate your help on this...

In firefox i found that by using firefox.exe -new tab http://www.hotmail.com we are able to open a url in new tab of firefox browser. similarly is there any provision in IE

Thanks in advance

Santhosh N.

Microsoft has not yet exposed an API level way to create/manage/manipulate tabs. sorry.

Hi Santhosh,

There is no difference in opening a new tab or a new window. A new tab is just a new window that is hosted by the same iexplore.exe instance.

You may like to have a look at the external.navigateAndFind method and

Browser Navigation constants.
