webbrowser control does not show image

Hi -

I am using the webbrowser control to show bing maps and it works on several of my forms.

Now I need to develop a new form that is specifically used to just show the map, like a pop-up.

I am using a string as source for the map and the string looks OK and the string is:

http://bing.com/maps/embed/viewer.aspx?cp= 11.9316666666667~-15.7816666666667&lvl=19dir=90&sty=a&w=700&h=600

I try to use a normal browser and it shows, with the string, the convenient output, albeit at a much larger scale

but in the web browser control is pure white...

the control has the following code on form load event:

Private Sub Form_Load()


    ' buscar a imagem satélite do ponto
    Dim strGPSMarcacao, _
        strTextGPSCoord As String
       
    Lat = Forms![_commonVariables]![currentLat]
    Lgt = Forms![_commonVariables]![currentLgt]
    zoom = Forms![_commonVariables]![currentZoom]
   
    textGPSCoord = Str([Lat]) & "~" & Str([Lgt])
   
    strGPSMarcacao = "http://bing.com" & "/maps/embed/viewer.aspx?cp=" & [textGPSCoord] & "&lvl=" & zoom
    strGPSMarcacao = strGPSMarcacao & "dir=90&sty=a&w=700&h=600 "
    Debug.Print strGPSMarcacao

    Me.fld_InfoSatelite.Requery

End Sub

Try this code (I can't check your variables, so try with constant values, then return to variables):
Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim strGPSMarcacao, _
        strTextGPSCoord As String
Dim Lat As Double, Lgt As Double, zoom As Double
    'Lat = Forms![_commonVariables]![currentLat]
    Lat = 11.9316666666667
    
    'Lgt = Forms![_commonVariables]![currentLgt]
    Lgt = -15.7816666666667
    
    'zoom = Forms![_commonVariables]![currentZoom]
    zoom = 19
    
    strTextGPSCoord = Str([Lat]) & "~" & Str([Lgt])
    
    strGPSMarcacao = "http://bing.com/maps/embed/viewer.aspx?cp=" & strTextGPSCoord & "&lvl=" & zoom
    strGPSMarcacao = strGPSMarcacao & "dir=90&sty=a&w=700&h=600 "
    Debug.Print strGPSMarcacao

    Me.fld_InfoSatelite.ControlSource = "=" & Chr(34) & strGPSMarcacao & Chr(34)
    Me.fld_InfoSatelite.Requery

End Sub

Have been down this road before...took me hours and hours to find the solution.

It's the compatibility mode setting on the web browser control.   It emulates IE 7 by default, which won't display Bing maps.

 Note that Bing showing up as a white page can happen on a normal station to, and for a reason besides this (bug in a registry entry for the cache settings - solution for that is here https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28918929/Bing-maps-only-works-if-in-private-browsing-enabled.html#a41443561 ).

The best registry key to set this with is:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION

as this doesn't require admin rights, but you can set it on the local machine key as well.

 Under that Key, enter a DWORD key of MSACCESS.EXE and set the value to 0x00002711 (10001)

 You also might want to consider switching to Google Maps.

Jim.

 They moved it to the bottom left.   No one finds it down there.   :(
