Extending the Browser Frame Using Band Objects

  • Matthew Crowley


This chapter presented band objects, an effective way to obtain a piece of UI real estate in the IE browser that persists across pages and browser sessions. I began the chapter explaining the origins of band objects, their basic architecture, and their management experience within the IE ecosystem. I then took this basic knowledge and created a base BandObject library, an effective way to consolidate the similar pieces of each type of band object (toolbars, Vertical Explorer bars, and Horizontal Explorer bars). I went deep into this base class, talking about the architecture and the registration process for both COM and IE. The final pages of this chapter were used to create a real example of each band object type using this library.
