    Question Internet Control

    Hey,

    I am interested in developing a web browser, i understand that i could do it the very hard way and form a connection to the server then get the html and write my own html rendering engine, but i really cant be bothered at the moment, is there a premade control avalible, like the Internet control in VB that you can just draw on, i have looked through common controls on msdn but there is nothing to do with the interenet there. So basically i just would like an interent control, that will handle all the connections for me and stuff.


    Thanks for any help,

    you have to handle the connection yourself (c'mon - it's isn't that hard). To display the HTML, unless you wish to use your own engine, you need to use MFC's CHtmlView. Really, if you want to distribute the browser I duno if you can use it, seeing how it's part of IE.

    About making the server send the HTML...you'll find the info here under the heading "HTTP Client". Hope that helps...

    And I think I'm wrong about distributing CHtmlView programs, because I'm pretty sure Kazaa, morpheus, and some other programs (mainly ones with nice HTML-designed GUIs somewhere) use it. But be wary about using it: You're completely confied to windows with your browser. That won't do well commercially. Plus, if it offers nothing over IE (if it uses CHtmlView I doubt it will...) who's really gonna want it? :-/
