IE's TWebBrowser & TWebBrowser_V1
Posted on 1998-05-18
This isn't truely a Delphi Q, but my implementation is in Delphi, so I figured you guys deserve the points... :-)
I want to be able to browse the net from my Delphi 3 app, so I decided to import MS Internet Explorer as an ActiveX control (shdocvw.dll) and use MS IE 4 as my browser. This works fine, but I noticed that the TLB file (SHDocVw_TLB.pas) has 2 very similar controls: TWebBrowser_V1 and TWebBrowser.
Both of these controls have similar methods & properties, although I have noticed that TWebBrowser (v2??) has more than TWebBrowser_V1.
So, the question is: what is the difference between TWebBrowser_V1 and TWebBrowser?
In particular I'm interested to know when each should be used. Or does it make little difference? Or should I always use one or the other?
