Detect Toolbar
Detect if a toolbar is installed

 11:22 am on Oct 13, 2011 (gmt 0)

Does anyone know how to detect if a toolbar is installed? Specifically GeoSurf (geosurf.com). It leaves no header information, so you can't detect that way. Any other ideas how to do this? I'm out of ideas.

It leaves no header information

Does that include the user agent?

Yep, nothing out of the ordinary from doing no toolbar > toolbar. If you'd like, i can give you the login for the toolbar so you can investigate. Let me know. I'm so stumped.

A thread here about detecting toolbars using JavaScript

Doing a search for geosurf toolbar clsid gave me FF8EC7F3-B1EE-4678-A2A8-F8C026A7BC74

Which you will need to have.

Thanks for the response. However I don't think the solution is going to work because the toolbar doesn't have any sort of API. Whereas with the google toolbar, the user can call "search" as a means to determine if it's installed, I unfortunately have no means of doing this with GeoSurf. :(
