Canary Bay WV2B (WD25 and WD17+)
« on: June 23, 2020, 08:24:47 pm »
webview2

This project requires installing

1 - Microsoft Edge Canary (download)
2 - (Optional Microsoft FREE Visual Studio 2019 Community(download))
3 - (Optional WebView2Browser (download))

These WinDev projects are modelled onto the C++ Version.

It does use exactly the same engine than the C++ version, aka WV2B.exe
This is the same binary that can be run as a standalone or encapsulated under control of the WinDev application.

This is a very powerful concept, because the embedded application is a native binary running much faster than any dot.NET IL or p-code.
Giving the illusion that it is a plain WinDev project, while obviously it isn't. ;)

You can even use a Skin of your own, to match the look of your product line...

Using this technology, it would be even possible to embed a 64-bit binary inside of a 32-bit application, go figure!

Je viens de tester cette version sous Windev25 et c'est fonctionnel, encore merci pour les Úvolutions.
On peut skinner le navigateur comme on le souhaite, du coup nous pouvons avoir un navigateur qui nous ressemble...

New version 1.06 has been attached to the first post of this thread.

  • Bug fix: the scrolling arrows were not always shown correctly.
  • New: The SETBIN onTABclose property allows you to display a random wallpaper when closing the last TAB.

The WD17+ version is attached to the first post of this thread.

This version uses "ChampClone" rather than "ControlCreate" (that was made available only in version 19).
For WD17+, i am providing direct support of the GDIPLUS flat API, needed to create the images used by the short cut buttons (cf: LoadURL).



If you download and use this project, don't forget to make a small donation to support my work.
