A new set of public APIs lets Internet Explorer 7 add-ons add a peer tab thread for opening dialog boxes without unintended dialog suppression

On This Page

SYMPTOMS

A new set of public APIs lets Windows Internet Explorer 7 add-ons specify a thread as a peer to the tab thread. This means that the peer thread is visually associated with a tab and that logic, such as unintended dialog suppression, should treat dialog boxes that come from the peer thread the same as dialog boxes that are invoked from the active tab.
