Can a hosted internet explorer show its address bar?


  • I'd like to show an original address bar and an original status bar for a hosted Internet Explorer.

    I've tried both the WPF and WinForms, ShDocVW and AxShDocVW, WPF WebBrowser control and COM control added via COM reference. I was able to control successfully the rendering of the web pages but I was not successful to show any of the chrome controls of the original Web browser.

    Is that even possible?

  • As far as I know, the chrome related to the outer frame is not part of the WebBrowser control.

  • Hello,

    As far as I know, if you want to use Chrome as a Control in to a .NET application, you can try the chromiumembedded framework. You can ask help in this website

    I will move this one to off-topic. This one is talking about the chrome control not IE control.

  • Actually, Jesse, the word "chrome" in this context is referring to the outer parts of Internet Explorer, and not the Google Chrome web browser.  It is common to refer to the finishing visuals of an application "chrome".  This terminology is common in Firefox too, and may be the source of inspiration here.
