Mozilla Control

Recommended Posts



As far as I know I am the first to do this. People, want to make a web browser, now they can! I have started using the Mozilla ActiveX control :)

You need to install the com object by downloading from the link here. Then

# Open a DOS prompt, change to your Mozilla bin directory (e.g. "cd c:\mozilla\bin")

# Type "regsvr32 mozctlx.dll"

And here is what I have done:

;~ Mozilla Control
;~ James Brooks

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $Moz = ObjCreate("Mozilla.Browser.1")

$Form1 = GUICreate("GUI", 793, 641, -1, -1)
$GUI_ActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($Moz, 8, 40, 776, 568)
With $Moz

$Go = GUICtrlCreateButton("Go", 24, 0, 75, 33, 0)
$Navigate = GUICtrlCreateInput("http://", 120, 8, 657, 21)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $Go, $Navigate
            $Moz.Navigate2 (GUICtrlRead($Navigate))

I have only done navigation, but more info can be found at, http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/mozilla.htm.

Have fun ;)

Seems nice, but for addition, you can add this line

RunWait('Regsvr32 /s "c:\mozilla\bin\mozctlx.dll"')

to register .dll automatically.

Suit yourself, but that ActiveX control was based on a very old emulation of IE when development appears to have stopped a couple of years ago. You might want to look at the IETab addon.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

That makes no sense. This is the firefox control.

That's alright, I didn't expect you to understand.
