How to fire events on windows? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I have a scenario like whenever a popup window occurs from IE, an event should fire so that I can get the htmldocument. I know how to identify the popup window and get the htmldocument from it. Only thing I need is I should be notified whenever a pop occurs. 

    Can anyone suggest me how to identify that a new window is opened or closed in c# or vb.net?

  • Please try to use the ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript

    ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Page, Page.GetType(), "newWindow", "window.open(<your Page Url<your New="" Properties="" window=""></your>>);", false);

  • Hi,

    what I understood is, that he is not looking for a solution to open a new window from an ASP.Net webpage.

    Instead he wants to get an event, when a new window was created. The following CodeProject article shows how such a global hook could be created:

    With kind regards,

  • Hi,

    I am automating IE in c#. So when I open a browser from c#, and in that if any popups occur, it should fire an event so that I can get the popupwindow from which I can get the htmldocument and add events to it. So I want to fire an event whenever a popup comes from the browser which I have launched from c#.

  • Hi Swarnamala ,

    You can use the SHDocVwCtl.WebBrowser_V1 object to capture the NewWindow event.
    Please refer to the answer in this link:
