    Question Is it possible to open Internet Explorer with Basic?

    Could I write a program with Basic that opens up an HTML Document in Internet Explorer, or is Basic not powerful enough to do that?

    What about doing that with C, is that possible?

    Really depends on what you want to do once you open it. You do have a version of the Web Control that was built as IE6 (as I recall)

    Thank you for replying.

    I would just like to opened up a HTML Document for veiwing. The HTML Document would be a webpage.

    For example, I make a webpage about cell phone carriers and save it as an HTML Document on my desktop, and then I make a program with BASIC and that program opens the HTML Document inside of Internet Explorer for veiwing.

    Would it be possible to open the page on another tab inside of Internet Explorer if Internet Explorer is already open with webpages on multiple tabs?

    You might be able to, but it all depends on the web page, and how it's programmed.

    Have a look into the WinExec or ShellExecute APIs.
