[WD[25] How to run web browser other than IE in windev
January 12, 2022 10:51AM
Hi All,

I try using the Windev Internet Browser sample.

This system is using ActiveX and the default browser to be run is Internet Explorer.

How to change this internet explorer browser to any other browser such as Firefox or else?

// Is the ActiveX installed?
IF ErrorOccurred THEN
Error("This application requires Internet Explorer 4 (or later)")

// Load the ActiveX

Internet Explorer is limited to run video streaming in browser.

Thanks a lot.

look on the pcsoft web site, in the online repository (https://repository.windev.com/)
You will find an example of using chromium in your project

Hi Argus,

Actually i need to run live video in browser (Windev) using webcam or CCTV Camera which is Internet Explorer cannot run it. I have try to run the live video using Microsoft Edge, Firefox and Chrome which is no problem.

I have try the sample on repository (Canary Bay 32-bit) and it is work.

I found that in WD26 there is HTML display control: Chromium technology. Is it same function such as repository sample? Anyone try this?

Thanks a lot.

it is based on the same chromium technology...
As it's integrated for you, it's simpler to use but you have less control (by example, you cannot choose which version of the external library is being used)
