Internet Explorer plugins

P: n/a
All, I want to write a plugin for internet explorer but can't seem to
find any documentation on the APIs. Ideally I want to create a plugin
that searches the history and favorites by url or title when something
is typed into the address bar. Any pointers to start me on my way?

Bret,

Are you saying you want to modify the auto-complete list? I don't know
if that is possible.

However, for general plug in development for internet explorer, you want
to look for "Browser Helper Objects". You will have to create all of your
components as COM components (exported to COM), but that shouldn't be too
difficult.

Hope this helps.

Exactly! I want to change the default behavior of the auto-complete list.

Hello Bret,

Along with Nikki's answer, it is possible to change auto-complete behaviours..
but you will need to look into the Win32 API's for the correction functions.

Exactly! I want to change the default behavior of the auto-complete
list.
