Displaying an html file in CDHtmlDialog

Hi,

I want to use CDHtmlDialog to display a webpage in a dialog. I just want to do the following:

     m_MyDHtmlDialog.SetWebPage("C:\\some_html_file.html");

can someone give me a quick example of how to do that? I don't need any interaction or anything besides just display the page on the local disk.

Thanks

Well since I have an MDI app I just tried deriving from CHtmlView and it looks really easy you just call:

    Navigate2(...);

but what's the difference between CHtmlView, CEditHtmlView, and CDHtmlDialog?

Thanks

CHTMLView is basically the WebBrowser control on an MFC View which fits into the doc/view architecture so you could use it just like you did on an MDI app as one of the views.

I havent used CHTMLEditView so my msdn is as good as yours on that one.

CDHTMLDialog lets you create a dialog using an HTML resource as opposed to a normal windows dialog resource. This has the added advantage of using the DDX_DHTML macros for data binding to and from your controls just like you would with a normal dialog.

Ok, one other question with it.

Is there a way to have it display html from a stream rather than a web address? Right now it looks like you can only call:

    Navigate("some_page.html");

is there a way instead to feed it an html stream? Something like:

     stringstream ss;
     ss << "<html><p>hello</p></html>";

     Navigate(ss.str().c_str());

It would be ideal to not have to keep writing the html I want it to parse and display to disk everytime.

thanks

I know you can do this with CDHTMLDialog. Look up the MSDN sample for it here: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/zh-cn/library/cca2a89k(VS.80).aspx

The area where your files are displayed is dynamically built and applied to the webbrowser. Checking that code might show you a way to do this in CHTMLView as well. It seems like you can apply the same technique in your CHTMLView.
