Web Browser Control

VJ
I am using the web browser control.., I would like to add the control at
runtime...

I was adding the web browser control at desgin time. Now I decided to add
the control at run time so I removed the control from the form and also the
refrences to AxSHDocVw and SHDocVw, then I added the following statments

Dim axwbOfficeDocEd itor As New AxSHDocVw.AxWeb Browser
Me.Controls.Add (axwbOfficeDocE ditor)
axwbOfficeDocEd itor.Dock = DockStyle.Fill

I get the following error,
Type 'AxSHDocVw.AxWe bBrowser' is not defined.

What am I missing?? Can't I add the webbrowser control at run-time?

Hi VJ

Further to the other answers, you will have problems if you remove the two
references AxShDocVw and ShDocVw from your application. The WebBrowser
control needs them, so they must be present.

I am surprised that you say they take a lot of memory when the application
starts up. They should not be loaded until they are required. Try the
following experiment:

Create a new Windows application and drag a WebBrowser control onto the
default form. This will add the two dlls as references. Now delete the
WebBrowser control and run the application in the debugger.

Look at the output window and you will see that the dlls are not loaded.

Now, add the control again, but this time go to the InitializeCompo nent
method and move all the code relating to the creation of the WebBrowser
control into a function LoadBrowser() and place a button on the form that
calls this new function. Run the application again and once more the dlls
are not loaded. Click the button and the dlls are loaded, and the WebBrowser
control appears on the form.

You can, after you completed these steps:

I am showing a memory occupancy of 20 MB of our application... I am not sure
about like certain parts.. There is a application which complied as DLL and
called from the Main MDI. I guess the Web Browser control is still added in
design mode in that application. Maybe that reference is getting bottled
up.. Could it be?

I will trim all the parts of the web browser control to runtime and then
give it a shot.. maybe it will come down. I do see the point.. of DLL in
debug window... I will check that out..

Thanks for all your help..

Hi VJ,

Do you have maybe the webbrowser in a special class while you have not used
the component model.component as base class for that?

Or when you did, do not dispose that class?

I wonder if anyone has a solution? I wanted to use the web browser control as a 'zoom' box for a smaller textbox.

The web browser control is fine when it comes to named entities, like &nbsp; . And there are a lot of named entities, just...

Hi All, I am developing a Web Page in ASP.NET where i am using a Web Browser control. I created this selecting the "Microsoft Web Browser" in the custom controls. Now the problem is with the access.
