Is there a web browser component available for Lazarus. I need something like the TWebBrowser component in Delphi.
I want to rewrite all my software in Lazarus but I need something to view html files.
If there are any components that can be used to view html files please let me know.
Thanks!
George

Maybe this can help http://delphi.mozdev.org/ also have a look at Synapse compnents and Indy4Lazarus.
Net support as components is still low in Lazarus.
The future must be... Fast and OpenSource so...
Think Open and Lightning Fast!

I've been looking for a way to embed a browser into lazarus. By my reading there is a long way to go. gtkmozembed looks like a solution for me (and maybe others). If only I knew where to begin! How do I 'import' a GTK widget into lazarus?

Cheers

Sorry, the above should be 'embed a browser into a lazarus project'.

You're not going to get TWebBrowser to work in FPC until it can talk to com objects.  Porting the pbear.com browser would probably not be too difficult. It displays html okay, but forget javascript or flash.

There probably is no good solution here. The mozilla/delphi stuff might work ok. I've used the ie com obj extensively, and I can tell you from experience that it's not the most stable situation to work with, even with delphi.

Sorry guys, but till Lazarus and FPC will be really finished I'll work on C#. Now it is free (the express edition) and very well documented on msdn.

I've downloaded the recent lazarus 0.9.12 version and found that a TurboPowerIPro 1.0 package is available. It includes a TIpHtmlPanel component.
Unfortunatelly I'm to busy at the moment I can't go and test it.
Isn't it a web component? If not what is it for?
:-) thanks for answering!

Yes it is. I think its OK to for basic HTML, but as far as I know it has limitations. For example, going by the mailing list, it curently has problems rendering UTF coding, and it doesn't support XML, etc.  Depends what your your needs are.

Yes it has some limitations, one important is the lack of CSS support. I also agree that it depends on your needs but I differ in the UTF stuff, gtk1 doesn't support UTF that I know, so tpipro for gtk1 doesn't support UTF, but for gtk2 it should work. For windows no idea :(, report problems. It's not a surprise that it doesn't support XML, it's a html viewer component :D

Interesting! Then it could be used, for example, to show a simple formatted text like a help, a report, etc...
I think I will try it some day! ;-)
The lack of CSS support is a pity!
