Added button to Internet Explorer ReBar written in C#

P: n/a
Hi to all,

I was wondering whether this was possible/how it was possible.

I would like to add a custom button to Internet Explorer ReBar.
I believe it is called ReBar or CoolBar; what I mean is the bar in the
Internet Explorer where you have "Back" button. Towards the right, MSN
Messenger had added a button on my computer, for example.

What I would like to do is to add a button and when the user presses the
button, it calls my application, or brings up a side menu (just like the
menu that comes up when you press the favourite button).
I'm sure this is all possible if written in C++ using MFC (since MSN and
Yahoo have done it), but I would like to use C# and .NET for this.

If any of you out there know about this, your reply is much appreciated.

Cheers,

Takuya

Takuya,

Check out the article on the Code Project titled "Extending Explorer
with Band Objects using .NET and Windows Forms", located at (watch for line
wrap):

Hope this helps.

Nicholas,

Thank you for the information.
I tried to do it, but then I realised my C# Standard Edition didn't support
Windows Control Library. I will get a better version and try again.

Cheers,

Takuya
