Hi, I''ve recently started using VB6, and I was wondering if there are any free controls available which will display a webpage for me.. I kinda suspect the answer is no.. but I thought I''d ask anyway. Thanks in advance.

Internet Explorer can be used as a control.
I don''t remember which was the reference''s name, was it something like Microsoft HTML controls...

Yeah you can actually choose to "insert web browser" into your project lol, complete with IE buttons and adress fields etc.

check in the "new project" section or something

The control library is called "Microsoft Internet Controls", and it''s located in shdocvw.dll.
To programmatically use html/dhtml capabilities of it, i suggest referencing "Microsoft HTML Object Library" as well, it''s found in mshtml.tlb.

I looked these up while visiting a friend yesterday evening, i don''t have vb6 myself anymore


Saandman: Well, he did specifically ask for a control...

You can also use Mozilla as a control, but you have to fiddle about first. Search for "Mozilla Active X" and you''ll find it
