Use FireFox or alternative browser object?

5 posts in this topic

I was wondering if it would be possible to use another browser (preferably firefox) to make an html object(rather than ie)

(without the user needing to install firefox, like say just a dll file or something, or a com object autoit can install?)

I ask because when emulating under WINE in linux, I.E. control don't work because there is no working IE com object, so it uses a special plugin that allows firefox com object to work for sending/receiving requests and displaying html.

Thanks in advance!

I once read about some sort of gekko object project, but it was very old and looked abandoned

Not here on the forum for somewhere else on the internet.

I have never seen anything like what you describe on this forum, and used with AutoIt.

The seems to be able to do what you're looking for (in general, don't ask me about WINE compatibility).

I'll check it out, thanks. It may just work on wine. (since it doesn't depend on a windows com object)

@john, I'll look around google for autoit + gekko, thanks.

It was nothing to do with autoit, it was a project to create a create an embeddable object for

use in third party applications, and it was old.

Here though I just found something I have not seen before, sounds proising.
