Hi Everyone,

This is the second alpha of the Client Sites SDK. Eventually this
package will become the Xtreme ASDK (Assembly SDK) to include
a wide variety of subjects.

This package is not complete. The documents and add-ins are
partially complete. However the Browser source code is very
near 100% complete. There have been considerable additions
and optimizations since the Alpha 1. Please let me know if the
browser demo fails to execute.

Dito... Looks very stylish tho when i load up the HTML link in internet explorer.... But the Browser.exe doesnt do too much.. well, nothing other than look like a big white empty window. ;)

I have the same opertating system.

Afternoon, Xtreme.

WinME IE 5.50.4134.0100

Works fine, however all links point to the 'win32asm.htm' file. Is this a feature?;)

That's strange 29 D/Ls and only 9 votes? Looks like a very professional effort you have going here Xtreme - keep up the great work. Scronty, it's not complete - if you look at the HTML, it was coded that way. The browser is a great deal more responsive without the menus and toolbar! Just need to get the keyboard working and it will be my default browser. :) It's really a noticible speed increase!

I guess there is COM calls to a more specific version of IE5
As those with IE 5.00.2614.3500 dont get a browser at all...

(( Wiping a tear from my eye ))

Very Well done.

I'm still looking into the reason Win98SE has a beef with the
example. NaN, as far as I know there are no COM calls that
are specific to a particular browser version.

The HTML in the sample is just something to look at. I may use it
as an intro to the ASDK in the future, but for now its just a way
of knowing the browser control is operating.

Problems that need addressing:

    [*]I have noticed that navigation is unstable and causes the
    example to crash on my machine when coinvoking the browser's
    Navigate method a second time. Links don't seem to have a

    [*]However, right-clicking a link and selecting "Properties"
    sometimes crashes.

    [*]Keyboard control (tabbing, etc.) and proper focusing of the
    browser haven't yet been addressed.

    [*]Ambient properties (IDispatch) haven't been addressed

I had a look at your source today. The browser now runs under WinNT with IE50. Problem was:




mov eax,E_NOTIMPL ;<------ statment was missing
IDispatch@Invoke_ endp

Yeah, you're right...
Maybe thats the problem with Win98SE too!

I'll post all of the updates in Alpha_3 on Friday...

I actually got the B*lls to tear into your source today.. I was affraid it would be too over my head, but im impressed with how you layed out your source.. made it very ez to read and understand.. (very impressed).

As well, i added the line mentioned above, recomipled ( and saved 0.5K whoo hoo!), and now the browser works perfectly! I have to say good work on the R&D!

Just thought you'd like to know from the Win98SE point of view...

Im actually browsing the board from it now... (theres sooo much more screen space...... Very Cool!)...

I have to say im realy enjoying this... heheehe

I had some of the same thoughts when starting this project.
So I intentionally formatted and commented the code that way.

I wish there was a standard editor that implemented hyperlinks,
hidden comments, etc. Oh, well I guess we'll add that to Xtreme
Software's ASM IDE.

Good Job. If you have any questions just ask...

Perhaps you already know this... but the 'DEL' key is not yet operational... Even in Java boxes etc. If i highlight some text of something i have to hit BACKSPACE to delete it..

As well, with your permission and proper credits for your work.. I would like to wrap up the basic code structure into an object for our OOP model. That way you can instanciate many instances of the same.. much like an edit box.

Of course i will have to wait till your satisfied your ready for this.. but I think it would be great library asset to provide to non-COM Masm users, as all the nitty gritty will be encapsulated.

You are correct sir! :grin:

...but the keyboard, navigation and multiple instance stuff
has been worked out. It'll be posted Friday.

Do what you want with the code. Just leave the original
comment at the head of WBCtl.asm intact and add your
"main" comment below it. you know, like a version history.
