The table on this page is this study’s master list of functions that appear in the export directory of any known 32bit build of IEFRAME. It gives for each function just brief summaries of the applicable IEFRAME versions and of the function’s status with respect to Microsoft’s documentation (not that there’s much to say on this point, given that Microsoft documents no more than a handful). Additional explanatory notes follow the table.

Function names are reproduced from the export directory of the IEFRAME.DLL executable, wherever possible. For functions that are not exported by name (i.e., are exported only by ordinal) from any known IEFRAME version, names are inferred from symbol files that Microsoft supplies for customer support. If a function is known as an ordinalonly export from at least one IEFRAME version, then the ordinal is given in brackets immediately after the function’s name.
The IEFRAME versions shown for each function are inferred from a study of known releases, making reasonable assumptions about likely continuity, especially to suppose that a function will exist in future versions or that a function exists in all (released) builds of a version if no counterexample is yet known.
Many functions exported from IEFRAME exist earlier as exports from SHDOCVW. The applicable versions include the annotation “earlier in SHDOCVW”. Refer to the list of SHDOCVW functions for details. In Windows Vista, many but not all of these functions are exported from SHDOCVW only as forwards to IEFRAME.
Except where otherwise stated, the reference version for Microsoft’s documentation is the January 2007 edition of the Windows Vista Software Development Kit (as distributed by Microsoft on MSDN Disc 3667). There is no one section for IEFRAME functions. That a function is not marked above as “documented” (or is marked on other pages as “undocumented”) does not mean for certain that Microsoft does not document it, just that I haven’t yet found where.
A few functions are not documented specifically as exports from IEFRAME but fit some general cases. These are indicated by enclosing the documentation status in brackets.
A few functions are shown as documented but with “SHDOCVW” in brackets. Strictly speaking, these are undocumented as IEFRAME functions. Each has an earlier implementation as an export from SHDOCVW and it is this earlier implementation, not the one in IEFRAME, that Microsoft documents. Some of these functions predate the January 2004 edition of the MSDN Library on CD (which was the previous reference version for a separate but related study of the Windows Shell) and were not documented therein, but have got documented since. These are labelled as “documented 20042006”, this being as much precision as I happen to know.
