The WebBrowser control lets you add a borderless WebBrowser control to your interface.


To create a WebBrowser widget choose "Widgets > WebBrowser". The mouse cursor changes to a crosshairs icon, indicating the create mode. Each left-click adds the selected widget to the current page. To quit the create mode, you can switch to the run mode with [F8], where you can use all widgets.

To edit the WebBrowser properties simply right-click it and choose the first menu entry "WebBrowser Properties". Alternatively, you can press [Alt + P] whilst the mouse is hovering above it or switch to the edit / move mode with [F9] and double-click on it. The WebBrowser property dialog opens up.


General Widget Settings


A unique name can be entered to identify the widget via the Object and Member Notation. The default name is based on the widget type and ID.

The WebBrowser's ID may be changed by entering a new one in the text field top left. If you change it, you will be asked if you also want to adapt the name to the new ID.


A short note can be added here. It is not displayed outside the widget but can be set and retrieved with the WidgetID.Note property member.


Uncheck this box to hide the widget.

When the option "Fix" is checked, the WebBrowser will be displayed on every page.
