178 Part IV: Controlling the Behavior of the Browser
Using Timers
Your custom browser can display one of three types of timers. Here’s what they are:
Session Timer: Starts counting the time as soon as the browser goes online and starts over each time the browser is loaded.
Daily Timer: Keeps track of the time spent online in each 24-hour period. Starts over at midnight.
Countdown Timer: Counts down to zero from a specified value.
The timer display lives in the browser’s status bar. This means that, if you want to use the timer, you must add a status bar when you design your browser in the browser editor. You can add the timer panel to the status bar both in the editor and in the final browser.
Setting the timer options
Although you can choose the type of timer you want to use when you’re designing your custom browser, you can also set the timer type from the browser itself. To do so, just right-click the timer’s panel in the status bar. When you do, the Timer dialog box appears (see Figure 18-8). The Show Timer Panel option controls whether the timer appears in the status bar. The Timer Type area is where you set the type of timer you want to use. Click OK to finalize your choices or click Cancel to leave the timer settings as they were before you displayed the Timer dialog box.

Associating an alarm with the countdown timer
The countdown timer can be connected to the Internet alarm feature, which can ring an audible alarm, show a popup alarm, or disable the Web browser from further use.
To access the Internet alarm from your custom browser:
1. Choose ToolsO Alarms.
The Password box appears.
2. Type your password.
3. Click OK.
The Alarms dialog box, shown in Figure 18-9, appears. Enabling the alarm automatically associates the alarm with the countdown timer.
That is, the alarm goes off when the countdown timer reaches zero.
Please refer to Chapter 17 for more information about alarms.

180 Part IV: Controlling the Behavior of the Browser
Chapter 19
Keeping Track of Visited Sites
In This Chapter
^ Starting a log file ^ Viewing and deleting a log file ^ Starting screen captures ^ Viewing and deleting screen captures
Лко^ the browser you create with the Browser Construction Kit features safety features like alarms and an approved-sites list, sometimes you want the browser’s user to have more freedom than such safety features allow. One way to arrange for this possibility is to keep an automatic list of sites visited, as well as to take pictures of the screen at given intervals. Then you can see what the browser’s user has been up to, yet the user still has complete freedom to explore the Internet. In this chapter, you explore these important “spy” features.
Generating Web Site Log Files
A Web site log file is a text file containing the Web sites your custom browser recently visited. You can use this file to ensure that whoever has been using the browser has not been visiting places on the Web where he or she shouldn’t be.
To use a Web site log file, you need to have added the Log File function when you designed your browser in the browser editor. You must also have added a menu bar with the Tools menu. Please refer to Chapter 7 for more information on menus.
