Testing the User-Agent string
There's a UAing test page here: http://www.enhanceie.com/ua.aspx
Adding custom User-Agent strings
You can add custom user-agent strings to this tool by editing your registry.
Create a new REG_SZ named CustomUAList inside HKEY_CURRENT_USER or HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software\Bayden Systems\UAPick. The list uses a pipe-delimited list of UA names and values.
IE14=Mozilla/14.0 (compat;)|FF6=Mozilla/14.0 (theFutureIsNeat)
Adds two new UA strings to the dropdown list, named "IE14" and "FF6".
To suppress the default UA list included in the default UI, also create a new REG_DWORD named NoDefaults inside \Software\Bayden Systems\UAPick with value 1.
Fully Customized UI
You can completely replace the UI for UAPick by editing your registry.
Create a new REG_SZ named UI_URI inside HKEY_CURRENT_USER or HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software\Bayden Systems\UAPick. This string value contains the URL to your HTML configuration file. For instance:
Note, you will need to restart IE after changing the
UI_URI registry key.
If you want to support a different size dialog, create a new REG_SZ named UI_OPTIONS inside HKCU\Software\Bayden Systems\UAPick. This string value contains the options for the open() command, for instance:
That's all there is to it!
Please note that this add-on only works in Internet Explorer on the desktop, not in the full-screen experience previously known as "Metro." Metro-IE does not support add-ons of any type.
This add-on also presently only works when Enhanced Protected Mode (EPM) is disabled; see Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Security. EPM is disabled by default for IE10 and enabled by default in IE11. This limitation can be fixed in the future, but requires an update to the code.
