TWebBrowser alternative

I'm trying to write a simple app that displays one particular web page and will refresh this page a a regular interval.

I've found a lot of references to TWebBrowser, but I can't seem to find it in my copy of Delphi7 and as such, I've tried using Fpiette's http component and i can get it to download the page and i can manipulate the code, but I'm looking for something that will actually display the page, not just give me the code for it...

Any Ideas??

yeah, there is no internet palette that I can see...
I'll try reinstalling it in case something mucked up.

Any ideas on any alternatives though?

Thanks Zip58.

I found that site earlier, but upon reading it again, I found a link on how to manually install the TWebBrowser.


If anyone else is wondering, all you need to do is go to the component menu, then import activx control. There's a lot of fancy controls in there :) like you can make an outloko clone as it takes a copy your outlook inbox. i thought that was cool :)
