Hi.

I need to create a TWebBrowser, at runtime.  I can do this without any problem, but I can't set the parent to be the form creating it.  (I need to be able to see it!)

I've never had this problem when creating components at runtime.

Thanks in advance,

MoonCalf.

begin
  wb := TWebBrowser.Create(Form1);
  TWinControl(wb).Name := 'MyWebBrowser';
  TWinControl(wb).Parent := Form1;
  wb.Align := alClient;

Okay - I've done that now.

I just have one other issue with this (creating TWebBrowser at runtime) - I can't set align=alClient.

Well, I can, it just doesn't work.

Put this in a button click event to see what I've got so far....

    wbOutput:=TWebBrowser.Create(AOwner);
    wbOutput.ParentWindow:=TWinControl(Owner).Handle;
    wbOutput.Align:=alClient;
    wbOutput.Navigate('http://www.google.co.uk');

Any advice?

Thanks,

MoonCalf.

This works for me! The Align works fine!

Shane

procedure TForm1.FormActivate(Sender: TObject);
var
 WB: TWebBrowser;
begin
 WB:= TWebBrowser.Create(Form1);
 TWinControl(wb).Parent := Form1;
 WB.Align:= alCLient;
 WB.Navigate('http://www.google.co.uk');
end;

Okay - I can see where my visibility problem was before, but I still can't get align to work.  Thanks for the code inishimura, but try putting that exact code in the FormCreate event.  The align=alClient doesn't work.


procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
  wbOutput  : TWebBrowser;
begin
  wbOutput:=TWebBrowser.Create(Self);
  wbOutput.ParentWindow:=Self.Handle;
  wbOutput.Align:=alClient;
  wbOutput.Navigate('http://www.google.co.uk');
end;

Thanks for the help everyone.

Don't get why setting ParentWindow=Form1.Handle should be different from Parent=Form1, but apparently it is.

Ah well - you live and learn.
