edgebrowser package
« on: October 21, 2020, 09:11:42 pm »
Hi all,

Delphi,implemented edge browser as new component 

https://blogs.embarcadero.com/new-vcl-tedgebrowser-component-rad-studio-10-4/

is there anyone can make it available for lazarus users? it will be great add-on to Lazarus IDE.

thanks

Hi!

No - it wont be a great add-on.

As Embarcado writes the component relies on two M$-packages.
So it is Windows only.

This is against  the Lazarus idea "write once compile anywhere".

And I don't need another Chromium-/Chrome-copy on my system.

install ActiveX package which comes with Laz in the packages..
build the IDE

then from there you have an option in the TOOLS menu to import some controls from the OS

click on that option and you might see WEB CONTROLS or something like that, select it and have it build a activexcontainer and component, it should install on the axtivex tab

 You may need to experiment a little as to what you get but there are lots of controls that pop up there.
The only true wisdom is knowing you know nothing

Edge = chromium and we have chromium support.
Older versions of edge, based on MS own engine are deprecated by Microsoft.
If your Windows 10 is up-to-date, you can simply use the CEF package.

Webview2(Edge Browser as library) in Lazarus would be fine. You could use updated browser without delivering big files.
I imported type library for webview2 and i tried to do same as with ie-activexbrowser with no luck. I will look it later.
But if someone wants to try here example project with imported type library and download links.
