Extension loading/unloading

PostPosted: Internet Explorer Extension Development, Extension loading/unloading Top


I have written a VB program which parses through all the open IE windows and allows me to access information from them (events, title, progress, etc.). I wrote this program as a proof-of-concept to find out if it was possible to get relevant information from already open IE windows.

What I want to do is make an extension which will be loaded with IE and unloaded with IE. For eg. if I make an extension for Firefox, it is loaded when the browser starts and is unloaded when the last window of the browser is closed. The extension has onLoad() and onUnload() methods, which I can use to perform relevant actions.

What is the way to achieve the same for IE Is programming choice limited to VC++ or is there a way for me to adapt my VB program to achieve this

I am quite new to IE development and Win32 APIs so please bear with me...any help/direction is really appreciated.

Thanks,
Karan M G
