[REBOL] Re: REBOL Web Browser Plugin (Alpha)

From: t-man:onemain at: 14-Jun-2001 8:32

howdy-- In IE clicking any hyperlink causes the browser to navigate unless the event is cancelled. The way around would be to target a hidden iframe or frame, which (In IE, at least) is still a part of the history (back button navigates the iframe back.) You don't get a blank page, but you get an extra history entry. The other way could be to handle the event with a little script and add the iframe dynamically using the DOM. IE is very kind about this sort of thing, and since creating the iframe with src already set doesn't cause the navigation event, so it is as if the history went nowhere, the current location only adding more content. I'll look at this a little more and see if I can figure out ways to prevent the navigation to a new page with the current plugin. T
