web browser in vp

Unread post by drspro2 » 5 Jul 2020 9:25

in windows 10 recently the new Edge browser was installed, will this new browser version of microsoft be called through the visual-prolog web-browser embed, or would it continue using the older internet explorer which is installed in the windows OS?

Edge Chromium can be embedded in Win32 programs using COM technology.

It has a completely different interface than the old Internet Explorer, so the old webBrowserControl will not use the new browser.

But we will add bindings for it, so it can be used as a new control (Microsoft has named it webView2).

There is however (currently) the problem that many computers doesn't have it installed, because it is not automatically rolled out to companies/enterprises. And I am not sure whether it is automatically rolled out to Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 computers (it does not work on Windows Vista).
