The first link returned has nothing to do with hosting a webbrowser activex
control in a webpage. It is about hosting a webbrowser control (different
from a webbrowser activex control now that there is a crippled webbrowser
control included in the .Net toolbox) and using it to post to a webpage.

To show and extreme version of the ability of activeX controls to be hosted
in different environments. What's more extreme than hosting a control
inside another instance of itself to show the flexibility and usability of
activex controls?

Doing so on a webpage simply drives home the fact that you are viewing a
control via in instance of that same control.

At least that's what I'm being told.....

That is my task. Did I object? Sure. But, it didn't do a damned bit of

The activex control being used on the webpage should try and install on the
viewer's PC if IE is not already installed on the viewing PC. Seeing as how
IE is installed on all Windows PCs, the only possible problem would be that
of version of IE is installed on the viewer's PC. Even then, the viewing PC
should try and install the activeX control and run the page.

So far, the specs only call for using Windows PCs (for both server and
clients). I haven't been directed to do the impossible and run an activex
control on MAC or Linux just yet - but it wouldn't surprise me any if I
were.

Tell them it's an assinine request which doesn't make any sense,
for the reasons which have been explained to you.

re:
!Is that a good enough explanation for you?

Nope. It's an explanation, but not a justiffication.

You should tell whomever it was who gave you that "task",
that there's better instruments to achieve what they request.

Specifically, tell them that Iframes and the webClient class can do what
they request...without embedding a web browser inside another web browser.

re:
!And, now that we have spent so much time together, do you have the requested information or not?

I feel that I'd be giving you inforrmation which will serve for you to hang yourself.
As said before, hammers should be used as hammers, not as screwdrivers.

re:

<shrug>

I wouldn't waste any time on a "problem" which is not a logical problem.

You should save your effforts for *real* problems...and you should tell
whomever it was that requested you dedicate effort to solve a non-problem,
that there's better ways to do what they requested.

Actually, all MVPs do that. Doing it helps all of us save our time.

re:

Of course, they are free to do that.
I am also free to point out that it's a question with no valid answer.

I never called his question "ludicrous". *He* called it a "ridiculous task",
and I pointed out that insisting on getting an answer for an impossible task
is a waste of everybody's time. I hope you don't mind that.

re:

I am not "editorializing", but thanks for the characterization.

I *did* post my opinion that he's saddled with a task for which there are better tools
than the one his superiors mistakenly think is the ideal tool for the job he was assigned.

I pointed them out, in fact.

re:
!It's clear that Jim has a question related to the NG.

He was given a very strong opinion to not attempt to use that tool,
because it's the wrong tool for what he was tasked.

Peter also asked him the correct questions :

"why do you want to host a webbrowser control in a web page?
In other words, what is the goal?"

If the answer is "to keep my boss happy", I'm sorry,
I cannot honestly recommend that he do it by pulling wool over his boss's eyes.

re:
!It's also clear that he has no choice in doing what he's been asked.

Actually, he does have a choice : educating his boss.

re:
!I'd say keeping your boss happy is a problem worth solving.

I'd say that giving your boss the *right* answers is even better.
That, long-term, will keep him happier...and your job safer.

Actually, I did. Last Thrusday I asked Juan to be a moderator of this group
and other newsgroups - and he is doing a great job!

Seriously, though, it is entirely likely that the OP here has *not* been
asked by his stupid boss to do this. Odds are he is just trying to use a
hammer, possibly gold in color, where a screw driver would be far better.
But even if I'm wrong about that and the gentleman posting the OP here is
really telling the honest truth, that truth would tell us that he is a
world-class brown-noser and will do whatever his boss asks - just to keep a
job in a company that doesn't listen to reason. It's even worse than that.
Apparently this obvious kludge is going to be presented in a class to
educate people who - by definition [of being a student in the class] -
wouldn't know any better. So it's not like this kludge isn't going to go
anywhere. Why should we help a world-class brown noser perpetuate an ugly
kludge well beyond some immediate project? (It's a rhetorical question).

Separately, there are a lot of folks coming to this NG who don't have a
strong technical background and are looking for ways to get their work done.
They will read other posts and get ideas for how to accomplish various
programming tasks. They simply aren't capable of decyphering - in the
moment - what is a kludge and what isn't. So it is a very good thing that we
have folks like Juan and the other more experienced developers - MVP or
not - who point out the fact that some things are bad to do. It isn't that
Juan or these more experienced developers *need* for someone to ask them to
point out kludges. They can't help it - being (1) more knowledgeable and (2)
wanting to promote best practices and standards - or at least help those
less knowledgeable to understand what the implications of their actions are.
It is obvious that many newer developers *don't* always understand the
implications of their actions - so it is helpful for someone to help them to
think it through. And for free!

It's clear that Jim has a question related to the NG.
Nobody questioned that.

It's also clear that he has no choice in doing what he's been asked.
I didn't know he was posting from Gitmo
Not everyone has the kind of employee/employer relationship where they can
just tell the powers that be that their assignment is ridiculous.
True - but that doesn't mean that we should help him to do accomplish a
kludge
I'd say keeping your boss happy is a problem worth solving.
At all costs?

Jim,
I'm not going to get involved in a potential flame war here as I don't think
it's productive. The bottom line is your efforts will likely be futile, since
the native COM IE Web Control was never designed to be hosted in a web page
via the <object clsid=.... tag arrangement. You would not be able to sink any
events and that's just for starters. Check here for details:

should try and install the activeX control and run the page.

So far, the specs only call for using Windows PCs (for both server and
clients). I haven't been directed to do the impossible and run an activex
control on MAC or Linux just yet - but it wouldn't surprise me any if I
were.

Actually, I did. Last Thrusday I asked Juan to be a moderator of this
group and other newsgroups - and he is doing a great job!

Seriously, though, it is entirely likely that the OP here has *not* been
asked by his stupid boss to do this. Odds are he is just trying to use a
hammer, possibly gold in color, where a screw driver would be far better.
But even if I'm wrong about that and the gentleman posting the OP here is
really telling the honest truth, that truth would tell us that he is a
world-class brown-noser and will do whatever his boss asks - just to keep
a job in a company that doesn't listen to reason. It's even worse than
that. Apparently this obvious kludge is going to be presented in a class
to educate people who - by definition [of being a student in the class] -
wouldn't know any better. So it's not like this kludge isn't going to go
anywhere. Why should we help a world-class brown noser perpetuate an ugly
kludge well beyond some immediate project? (It's a rhetorical question).

Separately, there are a lot of folks coming to this NG who don't have a
strong technical background and are looking for ways to get their work
done. They will read other posts and get ideas for how to accomplish
various programming tasks. They simply aren't capable of decyphering - in
the moment - what is a kludge and what isn't. So it is a very good thing
that we have folks like Juan and the other more experienced developers -
MVP or not - who point out the fact that some things are bad to do. It
isn't that Juan or these more experienced developers *need* for someone to
ask them to point out kludges. They can't help it - being (1) more
knowledgeable and (2) wanting to promote best practices and standards - or
at least help those less knowledgeable to understand what the implications
of their actions are. It is obvious that many newer developers *don't*
always understand the implications of their actions - so it is helpful for
someone to help them to think it through. And for free!

RE:
RE:

<< his subsequent replies have just been antagonistic . >>

There is absolutely nothing in Juan's replies that have been antagonistic.
The fact that the OP got his panties in a bunch doesn't mean that is the
effect Juan was intending - and it doesn't mean that such a respons on the
part of the OP is justified.

<< and serve no purpose >>
Wrong again. Juan's replies serve many useful purposes simultaneously. For
starters, it keeps other neophytes from looking at the OP and going - "
hey - cool - I wanna do that too". At least Juan's replies give them pause.
It *could* have given the OP pause too - but he decided to become offended
or somehow put out with the fact that the merits of his bad idea were called
into question. Juans replies also serve the purpose of maintaining the
integrity or usefulness of this NG. I could keep going...

Finally, we *must* make assumptions and speculate about reality - otherwise
we'd never get through life. So pointing out that I have speculated is, of
course, accurate. Of course your posts here necessarily imply a whole lot of
speculation on your part too. Nothing wrong with speculating. It's gotta be
done!

Okay, I've gotta get back to the game. The Colts are winning...

Later (oh, and let's meet at Starbucks and discuss the meaning of life over
a Latte! Mabe the OP's original offer still stands).

I don't think that the WebBrowser control in VB.Net 2005 would act that way.
Nor would Internet Explorer
popup the Request to Install ActiveX control dialog like it would if you
where going to a website that had
content that required a particular control to be installed ( like Flash
Player or something similar) to view that
content. For one thing, if you are running Internet Explorer, there is

There is an activex control for Firefox that could be used, but my boss
specifically wants an IE activeX control hosted on a webpage that will be
viewed with IE.

This example of nesting controls seems to amuse him, and no matter how I

he still wants his IE activex control on a webpage to view it in IE.

What is meant by "his ActiveX control"?

By itself the AxSHDocVw.AxWebBrowser control isn't especially useful.
The control needs a container that can expose a UI and
programmatically interact with the control's properties, methods and
events. Essentially this would be an ActiveX web browser control which
contains an embedded AxSHDocVw.AxWebBrowser control. Now embed the
container in the webpage.

Although I have done a lot of embedded IE in Java, Delphi, & C# I have
never considered embedding a browser in a webpage. As such my
suggestion is just a thought experiment that you might consider
pursuing.

Jim,

Like the others I don't see the sense, however probably will this be your
way to achieve the goal to what you have to do.

Of course never tested, why would I use this with a webbrowser.

me find a working code sample in VB.Net 2005 that shows a webpage hosting
a webbrowser activex control.

OK....it *is* a crazy request.....so make that 2 of your favorite
beverages. One for you and one for a friend.

Thanks to everyone for their posts and help. I really appreciate it.

The fact of the matter is that this was doomed from the beginning. You
simply cannot use a webbrowser control on a webpage in the same manner that
you can on a webpage. Due to IE security restrictions, and the fact that
Microsoft never wrote the webbrowser control to be used in this manner, you
cannot access the properties or events or methods needed to pull this
project off.

Working on this project actually did give me an idea for some brain building
software that "some people" sould really use.

Thanks again!

Oops! That should read "You simply cannot use a webbrowser control on a
webpage in the same manner that you can on a Windows Form."

Wow - their thinking (of lack of same) may be wearing off on me. I think I
need a vacation.
