Members Table

    The following table lists the members provided by the URLComboBox ActiveX control.

    Properties Description
    BackColor Background color of the address field.
    Font Font of the text.
    ForeColor Color of the text.
    Text Text of the address field.
    Methods Description
    Navigate Navigates to the specified URL.

    This ActiveX control is available in the form of scripts that can be used in combination with SiteKiosk. Use the URLComboBox control to display an address ComboBox which the user can use to navigate to arbitrary URLs. While the user enters text into the combo box an auto-complete popup will show the user similar URLs that were typed in before. The URLComboBox control automatically synchronizes its content with the current browser history of the corresponding SiteKioskWebBrowser object.
    To initialize the ActiveX control use the OBJECT tag and, in particular, the classID to identify the control. Set the initial object properties between the opening and closing OBJECT tags with PARAM tags. At a later point in time it will also be possible to access/modify these properties by means of scripts.
    The following example creates a new address field and displays its current text when the link is clicked.

    <SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
    function ShowProp()
    <OBJECT ID="URLComboBox" width="300" height="22px"
      <PARAM NAME="BackColor" value="16777215">
      <PARAM NAME="FontName" VALUE="Tahoma">
      <PARAM NAME="FontSize" VALUE="8.00">
      <PARAM NAME="FontBold" VALUE="0">
      <PARAM NAME="FontItalic" VALUE="0">
      <PARAM NAME="ForeColor" VALUE="65280">
    <a href="javascript:ShowProp()">Show Text property</a>

Applies to
    SiteKiosk v5.0 (and later versions).
