DESCRIPTION

This will implement the Mozilla Browser ActiveX control in your App, using the interface Wx::ActiveX.

The Mozilla Browser ActiveX Control is available from http://www.wxperl.co.uk/MozillaControl1712.exe

You can also get it from the control's author at http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/control.htm

The control may not be currently maintained, the last release being in 2005. You should probably therefore not use it as a general browser.

METHODS

new ( PARENT , ID , POS , SIZE )

This will create and return the browser object.

LoadUrl

Attempts to browse to the url, the control uses its internal network streams.

LoadString

Load the passed HTML string.

LoadStream

Load the passed HTML stream. The control takes ownership of the pointer, deleting when finished.

SetCharset

Sets the charset of the loaded document.

SetEditMode( BOOLEAN )

Set the EditMode ON/OFF.

GetEditMode

Return true if the EditMode as set on.

GetStringSelection( asHTML )

Get the text selected in the page. If asHTML is true it return the html codes too.

GetText( asHTML )

Get all the text of the page. If asHTML is true it return the html codes too.

GoForward

GoHome

GoSearch

Go to the default search page of IE.

Refresh( LEVEL )

Refresh the URL. You can set the LEVELs, from 0 to 3, of the refresh:

  0 -> Normal*.
  1 -> If Expired.
  2 -> Continue.
  3 -> Completely.
Stop

Stop the download process.

Print(Prompt)

Print the page. If Prompt is TRUE, will prompt for configurations, if FALSE will print directly.

PrintPreview

EVENTS

All the events use EVT_ACTIVEX. For example, the event BeforeNavigate2 can be declared usgin EVT_ACTIVEX:

  EVT_ACTIVEX($parent , $mozilla , "BeforeNavigate2" , sub{...} ) ;

or using the ACTIVEX_MOZILLA event table:

  EVT_ACTIVEX_MOZILLA_BEFORENAVIGATE2($parent , $IE , sub{...} ) ;

To import the events use:

  use Wx::ActiveX qw( EVT_ACTIVEX );

  use Wx::ActiveX::Mozilla qw(EVT_ACTIVEX EVT_ACTIVEX_MOZILLA_NEWWINDOW2 EVT_ACTIVEX_MOZILLA_STATUSTEXTCHANGE) ;
  ... or ...
  use Wx::ActiveX::Mozilla qw(:mozilla) ;
  

You can use a common event table for both Mozilla and IE

  use Wx::ActiveX::Browser qw(:browser);

Here is the event table for Wx::ActiveX::Mozilla:

    EVT_ACTIVEX_MOZILLA_STATUSTEXTCHANGE($handler, $axcontrol, \&event_sub);
