Html Rendering in Winforms

Hi all,

I am facing a problem with the rendering of html into a windows
application (C# .NET). I am trying with two possible approaches:

1. Use a control that directly renders the html into windows form, but
it should not be dependent on IE or mshtml. I didn't get such kind of
control so far. Can any one help on this?

2. Use a third party Html to Rtf converter and render the rtf in
windows .net RichTextBox. But this also creating problem while
rendering html tables. This is distorting the table structure and
complex formatting into table cell. Colspan and rowspan are not working
and many more... Again this problem is solved after we put RICHED20.DLL
in the application directory. But we can ship RICHED20.DLL along with
our product as its a microsoft dll comes with MS office package. What
could be possible solution for this?

Can any one please help me out to resolve this problem.

Hi Joel,

Thanks for the response. The control seems to be great. This is
something which i exactly need. But I am facing one problem, I hope you
can provide a solution for that. I want that the height of control get
auto sized exactly to the height of content in it after loading a html
file. Can it be possible in this?

HI Joel,

Got the answer :). I used GetMinimumHeight to solve this problem. Some
last questions about its distribution. Is this a paid control? I yes
whats the price for the same? And what are the rules for its
distribution? We are interested in this control.

Thanks a lot..

Its free. If you want support (like a guaranteed response), that is a
paid option. I haven't finalized a price for that yet, but if you are
interested, email me.
