Small Basic Browser with LitDev extention RRS feed

  • This is the fault of the extension.  Probably because both SmallBasic and IE are using the same underlying methods (both MS technology) and therefore sharing history in some way.  Its a feature not a bug!

    Nice Web Browser, martmen! Litdev, this feature is because of the System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser control is actually just a wrapper of Internet Explorer!

    BTW Litdev, I can never access your hostoi site, so I am curious: how did you implement the WebBrowser? At least in Windows Forms, all Web Browsers must live on an STA (serial threaded apartment) UI thread (which SB programs are not), so I created a new thread with the STA attribute when the form was initialized and passed it all the web browser controls to add to the form... which means that I had to allow cross-threaded forms calls, which is not a great design. I am curious to know how you got around that problem.

  • All source is uploaded with each mod as usual - I have no problem accessing my site or downloading dlls or source from home or work - http://litdev.hostoi.com.  The webhost is sometimes down, but not often.

    To work in the GraphicsWindow (FrameworkElement), I am using System.Windows.Controls.WebBrowser.

    Others seem to have accessed it recently (so must you to see Matrin's Browser app?), but if you still can't I can upload it somewhere else on request - SkyDrive, but won't maintain uploads there.

    So, it means your computer must have Internet Explorer, or Small Basic Browser almost can't work. I have uninstall my IE, so, unfortunately, I can't test it now;-)

  • This topic is more than 7 years old. I don't think the original posters are active on the forum anymore.

  • No avatars or image data appear.

    This is the same appearance as when using the installed Explorer 11.
    When I use MS Edge everything is displayed correctly.
    Does the extension always use MS Explorer or can MS Edge be activated.
    Is the security setting too strong?
