VB ships with a toolbar component, but there are better ones available.

Try UltraToolBars - www.infragistics.com

or search for Toolbars at www.componentsource.com

Hope this helps.

What I am looking for is to build one inside the browser. It is called a browser helper object. It registers as an IE B.H.O. and starts every time an instance of explorer is opened.

E.g. Yahoo companion - Alexa toolbar

Its definitely possible in VB to do so, with or without the toolbar VB provides.

The best thing for you to do if either use the one provided or purchase the Sheridan Toolbar. They have plenty of other good components which you may find useful. www.componentsource.com is where I got mine.

I wouldn't go down the road of writing your own unless you have plenty of time of your hand.

Do you want to use this control within other languages also ?...
