Autor: Bryan Ashby
[ Print tip ]  

Tip Rating (7):  
     


{
  I've written a small app that modifies a setting for IE and need to somehow tell
  IE to re-read the registry settings.
  Does anyone know of an API call or message that will do this?
}

uses
  
WinInet;

procedure IE_Reread_Registry_Settings;
var
  
HInet: HINTERNET;
begin
  
hInet := InternetOpen(PChar('YourAppName'), INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_DIRECT,
    nilnil, INTERNET_FLAG_OFFLINE);
  try
    if 
hInet <> nil then
      
InternetSetOption(hInet, INTERNET_OPTION_SETTINGS_CHANGED, nil, 0);
  finally
    
InternetCloseHandle(hInet);
  end;
end;
