Looking For Somthing (Not Sure What It's Called)


Recommended Posts

You know the windows internet explorer bar (the yellow one) that pops up when it blocks a popup, activex, or download file?

Well on a site I saw one they made that looked just like that but it said that I was not a member and to click on it to register.

I think is was either javascript or Dhtml.

Does anyone know what im talking about? Does anyone know where I can find this?

You want your web site to fake part of the IE GUI so you can trick people in to clicking it then clicking the real one to install your evil activex controller?

No, I wanted to use it to say they are not a member and have it take them to a REAL member registration page.

(and truthfuly even if I wanted to use an EVIL activex control, I would have no idea how to make it, use it, or get it to install, And I wouln't do that anyway.)

A web page mimic'ing part of the IE GUI sounds like an awful idea for:

1. cross platform ability, it may work in every browser on every operating system, but why would you steal part of, what is most likely, the worst program ever written and most poorly maintained program ever maintained. Additionally, it will most likly scare users using Firefox who have been told not to use IE because that's the wrong thing to do.

2. suspicion, if a web page is trying to pretend to be part of my program, it puts that site under instant suspicion.

.iebar {

    background-color: #ffffe1;

    background-image: url(ie-shield.png);

    background-repeat: no-repeat;

    background-position: 5px 2px;

    position: absolute;

    width: 100%;

    top: 0;

    left: 0;

    font-family: "Tahoma", sans-serif;

    font-size: 11px;

    padding: 3px 24px 3px 24px;

    border-bottom: #ffffff 2px outset;


.iebar:hover {

    background-color: #316ac5;

    color: white;


I'll let you figure out the rest. Just to let you know JavaScript = DHTML.
