An ActiveX control that is used to hide or to reset the browser chrome does not work correctly in Internet Explorer 8 [MS]

Warning: The retired, out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) desktop application will be permanently disabled on certain versions of Windows 10 as part of the February 2023 Windows security update ("B") release scheduled for February 14, 2023. We highly recommend setting up IE mode in Microsoft Edge and disabling IE11 prior to this date to ensure your organization doesn't experience business disruption.

For more information, see aka.ms/iemodefaq.

Symptoms

You have an ActiveX control that uses the following code to hide or to reset the browser chrome:

  pweb2->put_AddressBar(VARIANT_FALSE);   pweb2->put_MenuBar(VARIANT_FALSE);   pweb2->put_StatusBar(VARIANT_TRUE);   pweb2->put_ToolBar(VARIANT_FALSE);   pweb2->Release();

However, when you run the ActiveX control in Windows Internet Explorer 8, the ActiveX control does not work correctly. Additionally, the browser chrome is not hidden or reset as expected.

Note If you resize the browser, the browser chrome is hidden or reset as expected.
