New in version 2.1: Number of documents completed events should be set to 1 in most cases. It simply means that when InTiles is resetting and loading the initial page, only one “Document complete event” is necessary to know that the reset process is over. Some web sites may trigger more than one Document completed events and the second one usually starts an unwanted session after each reset.
Websites restrictions: use wildcards * and ? when entering URLs. An * replaces any number of characters and a ? replaces only one character. For example, if you only wanted to allow access to the website example.com, you would select Only allow to some websites and add the entry *example.com*.
Blocking windows and dialogs: some windows would provide users with too much access and need to be blocked. It is done by specifying the window class, the window title, or both. It uses the format title/class. If no / is present, the text is assumed to be the title. If only the class is included, it must start with a /. If both the title and the class are provided, both must match a window for the window to be blocked. When a window is blocked, a message is displayed.
Print dialogs to block: when using IE as the browser engine, clicking on a print button on a web page is not blocked even if printing is not enabled here. The solution is to detect the print dialog and cancel it. In the example above, any window with the title print will be automatically canceled.
The Machine ID is generated specifically for one computer using hardware components. It may change if you replace components. In this case your license will have to be transferred to the new Machine ID.
