Hello,
Is there easy way to get address url entry from that edit box in IE? I can
get current url displayed but don't know
how to get what user type in before navigation.
thanks

If you aren't typing in a full URL including protocol prefix
it isn't really a URL at all but a fragment which may be
sent to your default search site. In that case you might
see such queries prefixed by a common request header
by pressing F4 and looking for one you want to retry.

To see all such requests, select one from the F4 list;
cancel the list (e.g. press F4 again); press End (to stop that one
from being selected) and press Ctrl-Backspace sufficiently
so that only part of the common header is showing (or otherwise
delete the unique suffix of your chosen entry); then type the next
character in the common header and wait for AutoComplete to
show you its complete list using that filter.

What I want to do is get that user entry programmatically,
before user click enter. I coauld enumerate windows and
try to send WM_GETTEXT message but maybe is there simpler way.
thanks
