Running the web-browser in a VFP form. by jimoo
Posted: 31 Aug 03 (Edited 27 Apr 11)

Introducing COM 1.01

1. Create a new project (I call mine websample)
2. Go to the 'Classes' tab and add the following VCX file:
  _webview.vcx
  * mine is in the Gallery directory
  * c:\program files\microsoft visual foxpro8\gallary

3. Create and add new Form.

4. Drag and drop, from the Classes Tab (webview.vcx) the control named: webbrowser4

5. Size it to take most of the form.

6. Add a command button

7. Add the following code in the click event:
  LOCAL lcURL
  lcURL = [http://www.microsoft.com]
  THISFORM._webbrowser41.Navigate[&lcURL])

  OR HARDCODE THE URL

  THISFORM._webbrowser41.Navigate([http://www.microsoft.com])


8. Save and run the form.  You should have the web page in a VFP form.  

This works with any HTML and you can try if from a file on your local pc too.  I.E. ([C:\myhtml.hml])

Take a few minutes and add a URL label and a textbox to the form.  Change the code so it navigates to the value in the text box.  

Pretty cool...
