Opening IE from Java Swing Application in Kiosk mode
3 Answer(s)      4 years and 5 months ago
Posted in : Java Beginners

Hi All, I want to open a URL in IE from my Java Swing application running in Wiindows. I am using the below code.

public static boolean openInBrowserKioskMode(String url){
 String os = System.getProperty("os.name").toLowerCase();
 Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
 try{
    if (os.indexOf( "win" ) >= 0) {
        rt.exec( "rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler " + url);
}
 }catch (IOException e){
e.printStackTrace();
    return false;
 }
 return true;
}

As per the above code, IE window is opening. But I want to open the IE window in Kiosk mode or without address bar, foward/back buttons, etc. Please help me to resolve this problem

Thanks & Regards, Abhijith

          String url = "www.roseindia.net";
          try {
               String[] b = {browserPath, url};
               Runtime.getRuntime().exec(b);
           }
