Remarks

To use ShowHTMLDialog, which is implemented in Mshtml.dll, you must dynamically load and call this function by using the LoadLibrary function and the GetProcAddress function. The proper function type for ShowHTMLDialog is defined in Mshtmhst.h in the SHOWHTMLDIALOGFN type. A full sample that demonstrates the use of ShowHTMLDialog is available on the ShowHTMLDialog Sample Source Page.

security note Security Alert  Using LoadLibrary incorrectly can compromise the security of your application by loading the wrong DLL. Refer to the LoadLibrary documentation for information on how to correctly load DLLs with different versions of Windows.

Example

The following example shows the basic steps to load Mshtml.dll, obtain the address of ShowHTMLDialog using GetProcAddress, create a URL moniker, and call ShowHTMLDialog.


   HINSTANCE hinstMSHTML = LoadLibrary(TEXT("MSHTML.DLL"));

   if (hinstMSHTML == NULL)
   {
       // Error loading module -- fail as securely as possible
       return;
   }
   
   SHOWHTMLDIALOGFN* pfnShowHTMLDialog;
   pfnShowHTMLDialog = (SHOWHTMLDIALOGFN*)GetProcAddress(hinstMSHTML,
                                                              TEXT("ShowHTMLDialog"));
   if (pfnShowHTMLDialog)
   {
       IMoniker *pURLMoniker;
       BSTR bstrURL = SysAllocString(L"http://www.example.com/dialogsource.htm");
       CreateURLMoniker(NULL, bstrURL, &pURLMoniker);

       if (pURLMoniker)
       {
           (*pfnShowHTMLDialog)(NULL, pURLMoniker, NULL, NULL, NULL);
            pURLMoniker->Release();
       }

       SysFreeString(bstrURL);
   }

   FreeLibrary(hinstMSHTML);
