I can't find a copy of the original write-up for it, but I can tell you that as well as the usual DIALOG commands the BROWSER element supports the following special BROWSER commands:

Code:
BROWSER <subcommand>, <element name>


where <subcommand> can be:

BACK, FORWARD, STOP, REFRESH, PAINT, SAVEFILE,LOADFILE, PRINT, PRINTSETUP, PRINTPREVIEW, SELECTALL, COPY

It supports the follwing @BROWSER() functions:

Code:
@BROWSER(<element name>, <arg>)


where <arg> can be:

NAME - return the title of the currently loaded page;
NAVURL - return the URL it wishes to go to after a <Browser>NAVIGATE event (generated when NONAVIGATE style is set.)
URL - returns current URL
BUSY - returns true/false if browser element is busy.

The element supports the followimg styles, which mostly are used to disable certain types of action.

OFFLINE, NOIMAGES, NOVIDEOS, NOMUSIC, NOSCRIPTS, NOJAVA, NOACTIVEX, NONEWWINDOWS, NOFILEDOWNLOADS, NONAVIGATE

The NONAVIGATE style generates a <Browser>NAVIGATE event if the user clicks on a hyperlink that is not specified as having a different target, you can use this to get VDS to do stuff in response to clicks on links.

I sure would like to see the original write-up. Wink

(Or did Jules cover it all?) Because the DLL was included with the package, seems that documentation should be included. (I think everyone agrees.)

Still could use additional commands/functions, too! Cool

Oh, forgot to say thanks, FreezingFire. Cool

(I have read that post, but thanks just the same.)

Warmest regards,

I'm sure there was originally a document supplied to Commercial Research describing the commands and functions of the browser DLL. For some reason, it never got incorporated into the help file.
I no longer have this document as I cleared out a lot of stuff once I finished the work on VDS 5 and passed it to CR. The information FF posted was something I quickly put together after having a skim through a copy of the DLL source code. That, plus the example script, is all the documentation there is!
