problem with web browser module

Discussion in 'Python' started by Eric Johansson, Dec 15, 2012.

  1. I need to be able to invoke a specific webpage with Internet Explorer.
    If the browser is not up with that page, I needed to come up with that
    page. If the browser is already up, I only need to bring that browser
    and page to the top of the window piles.

    When I use the web browser module today, it always seems to bring a new
    browser instance up. Is there anyway to get it to work with a single
    instance?

    the use case is to invoke a specific evernote page and make it available
    for immediate dictation using speech recognition. There's a whole bunch
    of other things I need to do around the browser invocation but that's my
    problem and fortunately I know what I have to do. I just need your help
    in making sure only a single browser instance is created and it
    references a single page. If I have multiple pages I need to refer to,
    it would be nice if they came up the separate tabs within the same
    browser instance.:)

    A clue or two would be welcome. Thanks
