Adding tab to current Internet Explorer

Jump to solution

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 14 May 2012]

I would like to know if anyone knows how to add a new tab to a active internet explorer. The current logic that we have in the system that does a system call to open a web page will open a new internet explorer each time. I would like to just add a tab to the current internet explorer instead.

Thanks for any help.

For Thin client you need to ad @DISPLAY ... C$SYSTEM can be used to execute a program in Thin Client environments. To execute a program on the display host in a thin client environment, add the prefix "@[DISPLAY]:" to the name of any program that resides on the client machine. For Example:

C$SYSTEM "@[DISPLAY]:C:\notepad myfile.txt"

This works for me from the command line and may work from a system call as well.

start /d iexplore.exe www.google.com

The command above works fine when not used with Thin-Client....but will not work when called using Thin-Client.  Below is my attempt to use this in Thin-Client with C$SYSTEM.

          INITIALIZE WS-HELP-ME.

          MOVE "start /d iexplore.exe www.google.com" TO WS-HELP-ME.

          CALL "C$SYSTEM" USING WS-HELP-ME, 129.

Any words of wisdom from anyone???
