    IE Plugin

    How would I go about writing a plugin (I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think I want an ActiveX plugin) for Internet Explorer? I've searched google, msdn, this board, ask jeeves, you name it - I can't find a SHRED of info or code detailing how I can do this...

    Any info or help you can give me would be awesome...

    Hard to help without knowing what you want...either way though - you need to understand a little COM

    If you want a toolbar and such for IE, then MSDN has examples - here is a good start from my bookmarks - http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de..._adv/bands.asp

    If you want to create a custom control to be displayed in the window of IE (live a Java applet is) then you need an ActiveX control - these are pretty complex and tedious without a tool like MFC or (better) ATL....

    I figured that was what ActiveX was for...that's not want I want at all...


    I don't really want a toolbar or anything, but knowing how that's done could probably help...what I'm trying to do is capture mouse events (I know I could do this out of IE, but I figured it'd be easier with a plugin) and turn them into Mouse Gestures like in Opera. I'll be sure to check that link, though - thanks. If you've got an idea now that you know what I'm trying for, I'd be happy to hear it.
