Extended WebBrowser Control Series: NewWindow3

Recently an user of the ExtendedBrowser v2 commented that he needed access to the NewWindow3 event.

The NewWindow3 event is raised when a new window is to be created. It extends NewWindow2 with additional information about the new window. 


Private Sub object_NewWindow3( _
	ByRef ppDisp As Object, _
	ByRef Cancel As Boolean, _
	ByVal dwFlags As Long, _
	ByVal bstrUrlContext As String, _
	ByVal bstrUrl As String)


object Object expression that resolves to the objects in the Applies To list. ppDisp Object expression that, optionally, receives a new, hidden WebBrowser or InternetExplorer object with no URL loaded. Cancel A Boolean value that determines whether the current navigation should be canceled. true Cancel the navigation. false Do not cancel the navigation. dwFlags The flags from the NWMFenumeration that pertain to the new window.

typedef enum NWMF 
    NWMF_UNLOADING = 0x00000001,
     NWMF_USERINITED = 0x00000002,
     NWMF_FIRST = 0x00000004,
     NWMF_OVERRIDEKEY = 0x00000008,
     NWMF_SHOWHELP = 0x00000010,
     NWMF_HTMLDIALOG = 0x00000020,
    NWMF_FROMDIALOGCHILD = 0x00000040,
     NWMF_USERREQUESTED = 0x00000080,
     NWMF_USERALLOWED = 0x00000100,
     NWMF_FORCEWINDOW = 0x00010000,
     NWMF_FORCETAB = 0x00020000,
     NWMF_SUGGESTWINDOW = 0x00040000,
     NWMF_SUGGESTTAB = 0x00080000,
     NWMF_INACTIVETAB = 0x00100000

bstrUrlContext The URL of the page that is opening the new window. bstrUrlThe URL that is opened in the new window.

Please notice:

Note   The NewWindow3 event is only fired when a new instance of Internet Explorer is about to be created. Calling showModalDialog or showModelessDialog does not trigger an event because they are not new instances of Internet Explorer. They are implemented as MSHTML host windows, which allows them to render and display HTML content but not hyperlinks between documents.
