Automating Internet Explorer

Here are some links to additional information and code examples, for both Visual Basic and Visual C++.  When automating Microsoft Internet Explorer, the reference libraries used are Microsoft Internet Controls (shdocvw.dll) and Microsoft HTML Object Library (mshtml.tlb).  The Class Name: "InternetExplorer.Application" is associated with shdocvw.dll   The other, mshtml.tlb, allows you to read various elements of the Internet Explorer/WebBrowser Control's HTML text.
