Using AxWebBrowser to Browse Files


I'm using the AxWebBrowser in a C# WinForms application. I've got
the basics working, but need some help controlling the view options for
browsing files.

How can I disable the "WebView"/Tasks pane on the left side of the
file view?

I've looked around and know it can be done globally from the registry
(HKLU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Advanced -
WebView = 0), but I'd like to control it on a per instance basis when
I initialize the control. I've also found a reference to a NoWebView
flag that can be set in a VB form file, but can't find it or
equivalent on the AxWebBrowser control.

I also wouldn't mind being able to toggle on/off the "Folders"
taskpane as well. I haven't really looked into this either, but saw
a NoFolders flag where I saw the NoWebView flag.

Things I've tried that don't work:
1) axWebBrowser.Pu tProperty("NoWe bView", 1) - api is probably not
meant for this
2) Setting the AxWebBrowser.Vi ewOptions property - read-only, but
values look like what I want

Or is there a better control/class to use for a File Explorer?

Good afternoon. The entire task that I'm trying to achieve is to allow a user to browse and upload multiple files simultaneously, hiding the Browse button of <input> tags of type="file" and replacing it with a button of my own background color and text. The file paths I'd like displayed in a textarea and then the files uploaded at once.

I'm working on an application for browsing encrypted files (HTML and PDF mostly)on a DVD. My plan is to decrypt the files to memory and stream them to the AxWebBrowser component which should be able to display them at that point. However, I haven't been able to find a way to intercept the navigation command when someone clicks on a link in an HTML page so I can pre-process the file before it is rendered. >From what I've been able to...

Okay, I've given up on using the "new" WebBrowser in 2005 to do what I want to do -- tabbed browsing. It seems I really need RegisterAsBrowser and Application to get each instance of a browser working on each tab (and those methods are not available in 2005). I found some code on MSDN forums, but the extention didn't really cover RegisterAsBrowser. Someone told me how to do it, but it's in c and basically over my head. Even though he...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
