    Question Programmatically opening Internet Explorer to multiple URLs

    I’m trying to add a new feature to an application of mine and can’t quite get it right.

    I want to be able to click on a button and have one “instance” (I think that’s the term) of Internet Explorer open up, with about half a dozen tabs open within that - each with a different website.

    I am able to do it fine with just one URL, but don’t know how to do multiples.
    Basically, I do this now ...

    ret = spawnl(P_NOWAIT,
    ProgramFileName.c_str( ),
    ProgramFileName.c_str( ),
    Url.c_str( ),
    NULL);

    where ProgramFileName is “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe”
    and Url is one the URL of the websites I wish to have opened in one of the tabs.


    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks

    I may be totally wrong about this, but I seem to recall reading someplace that IE will open multiple URLs if you place them on the command line separated by semicolons...
    Code:
    ie http://www.google.com;http://yahoo.com
    You're going to have to experiment with it...

    Why IE of all browsers? Why not the default?
