IHTMLWindow2::external Property

Retrieves external access to an additional object model provided by host applications of the Windows Internet Explorer browser components.


HRESULT IHTMLWindow2::get_external(IDispatch **p);


Address of a pointer to an IDispatch interface that receives external access to an additional object model.

Return Value

Returns S_OK if successful, or an error value otherwise.


In the Internet Explorer stand-alone browser, no external object model is available. In a hosting scenario where it is available, the object model is defined by the application hosting the Internet Explorer components, and the hosting application should be referred to for documentation. For further details on how to implement extensions to the object model, see Extending the Dynamic HTML Object Model.
