Hi all,

I have a project where I've inserted a page tab.
On one tab I have a tab with synedit component where I have the html code.

Now I tried adding EmbeddedWB but the preview was not displying properly as it's got css etc.

So, I was thinking of trying TBrowser? or someother if you know of a better component to use.

To basically I have the code on one tab and when I go the tabsheet2 I need to get the browser component to display the html page.

How is the best way to do this please?

thanks

But there's no myfile.html because I type the html code on the synedit component/page and when I change the tab to where the web browser component is I need it to preview my code.

know what I mean?

can you access the HTML as a string or stream from synedit ?

Used this code:

Procedure TfrmMain.PageControl1Change(Sender: TObject);
begin
if PageControl1.ActivePage=Tabsheet2 then
   Begin
 
     LoadFromStrings(SynEdit1.Lines);
   
   end;
end;

It works but doesn't get any css or render properly.

OK here's an update:

Please see code below:

It works (well more or less)

There's a problem with is that when I open an external html file into synedit and THEN try to view it on the design view it does not look right at all.

What could be the difference?


procedure TfrmMain.PageControl1Change(Sender: TObject);
begin
if PageControl1.ActivePage=Tabsheet2 then
   Begin
 
   EmbeddedWB1.LoadFromStrings(SynEdit1.Lines);
   
   end;
end;

Open in new window

Fixed it! Had to use absolute path and navigate instead of loadfromstrings
