    Web Browser Project

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and just thought I'd get some input from the community on my next potential project.

    I have just finished a somewhat larger scale freelance project of making a Yahtzee game using Windows Forms (C++/CLI). Now I'm trying to find another project to complete and found a good idea that would be very challenging; making a very basic custom web browser.

    My question is what would the best way to go about doing this? Windows Forms? Win32 application? I develop in Visual Studio 2008 and I have a lot of experience using C++, C++/CLI, C# and Java. If anybody has any experience doing things like this I welcome the input

    I made a very basic web browser not too long ago. I used Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2010 (2008 is basically the same). There is actually a pre-built web browser box in the "tools box". You should try by starting your project as a "Windows Form".
    However, there are lots of excellent guides on YouTube about creating a web browser.

    Oh does it? I didn't see that was in the toolbox. It sounds like Windows Forms would be the best way to go about it then. I finally got the hang of the C++/CLI aspect of Windows Forms applications.

    I do have one question about that though. If I were to want to create a seperate .cpp and .h file for call functions or anything like that in my windows forms project, how do you make them accessible to the form1.h file? The only way I found to do it in my last project was to just make all of my call functions and variables members of the form1 class and then just call them in the On_Click button functions. Is this the best way to go about it?

    I'm sorry but I have basically no experience on Windows Forms programming. I just made a few things following tutorials just for fun so, I can't answer your question.
