Embedding Mozilla

2002-09-05 19:40:59+00 by Shawn 0 comments

For those who might be coding in Windows, I discovered last night that adding a browser window/object to your application doesn't mean you're stuck with using Internet Explorer's COM (ActiveX) object. Mozilla also has a browser ActiveX control (using the Gecko engine - which is about a third the size of the IE core) that you can use. It comes as part of the Mozilla install (so if you've installed Mozilla, you've got it available) and the best part is that its interface is designed to exactly mimic that of IE's object - so you can transparently drop it into your app in place of IE. The link provides instructions on using the control with VC++, VB, Delphi and even IE itself.
