    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    Curious, what kinda errors are you getting? I do not get any errors nor does a friend when he has the project. I am bettin they are prob path errors that you need to change to match your system and where you saved the project. In either way, I will try removing as much as possible from the project and reimpose it. I do have some images and stuff that may be the root of the problem. I will also try creating a new project and trying the steps again. Thank you for your time.

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    I am not sure entirely what I did but i managed to get it to work. I think it may have been due to the reason that i forgot to copy to output dir. i copied it to the bin/debug folder by hand since their are so many files to go through and changer. it worked! This is a great tutorial too. Thanks for taking the time to try and help me. +Rep 4u

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    Hello

    I would get the text (or source) of a website, but I can't.

    I use this in VB.Net 2008:

    Code:
    Dim x As String = GeckoWebBrowser1.Document.DocumentElement.InnerHtml
    (similar to WebBrowser1.DocumentText)

    But that doesn't work. x returns nothing (the site is fully charged in GeckoWebBrowser1)

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks and sorry for my English

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    Thanks for your answer, Radjesh Klauke
    I've searched but I haven't found.
    I have no problem if I create a WebBrowser (Internet Explorer). I can use
    Code:
    WebBrowser1.DocumentText
    My problems are with GeckoWebBrowser (Mozilla Firefox) and in that site they donīt use GeckoWebBrowser
    Thanks anyway and I'm sorry for my English again

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    Has anyone successfully implemented this in projects they had previously coded with IE web controls?
    And does anyone have/or know where to find the "DOM CLASSES" mentioned in the 2nd post within this thread http://www.geckofx.org/viewtopic.php?id=1378

    They are what's needed for a more IE style interface with the pages, i.e. setting forms etc. & all the basic things easy to do in the IE control.

    I would SERIOUSLY appreciate anyone that can help me find these. As the 'search feature' on geckofx.org is down & has been down for weeks now. Making it virtually impossible for me to put the time in to find the said files!

    Thanks

    You can use this besides the IE controls. Don't know where to find the DOM classes btw.

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    hi guys, Sorry to update an old thread, but this was the best thread I could find after search for 3 days of an error I "was" getting. But after following the short tutorial on this thread, I was able to get past the original error I was getting, but now I got a new one. which is the following:

    "System.InvalidCastException: Specified cast is not valid." Below that has
    Code:
       at Skybound.Gecko.nsIWebBrowser.GetContentDOMWindow()
       at Skybound.Gecko.GeckoWebBrowser.OnHandleCreated(EventArgs e)
       at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmCreate(Message& m)
       at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m)
       at Skybound.Gecko.GeckoWebBrowser.WndProc(Message& m)
       at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(Message& m)
       at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
       at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)
    I have followed all the steps listed, including making all the files in the xulrunner folder "Copy if newer"

    So then what I tried was saving that, then closing the project, and created a new project, followed all the steps over again... and now I get this error when trying to publish:
    Code:
    Error	1	"xulrunner\chrome\classic.manifest;xulrunner\chrome\comm.manifest;xulrunner\chrome\en-US.manifest;xulrunner\chrome\pippki.manifest;xulrunner\chrome\toolkit.manifest" is an invalid value for the "InputManifest" parameter of the "GenerateApplicationManifest" task. Multiple items cannot be passed into a parameter of type "Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITaskItem".
    So either way, now im getting 2 separate errors on 2 different projects. can someone help me out a bit with this? Either Project will be fine, Once I get past the error, I can continue with my original project. I just need to find out why im getting either of those 2 errors. So im hoping the original poster here, still visits this forum.

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    This version is a bit deprecated. I will create a new thread as soon as I have some more time, 'cause the new and better dll is from another developer.
    But there is also the issue that you aren't telling what you did exactly.
    Multiple items cannot be passed into a parameter of type "Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITaskItem"
    Why did you create multiple items? Perhaps you can upload your project?

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    Im not exactly sure what multiple Items I created... The 2nd project with that error was a completely new project

    Here is a link to a zip file with Screen shots in it from each part.. ApplicationEvents, Form1, Form1.Design, and Solution Explorer. If you need the actual files themselves, I will upload those in a rar file, cause its actually a bit big.

    Oh and .. Thank you so much for replying.

    Sure hope you get around to it :-) And thanks so much for your contribution to all of us forum peeps!

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    So just to update here.. I was messin around a bit, and installed some updated stuff... GeckoComplete (Which I think is Geckofx 2.0) and xulrunner 16.0b3 and when I try to run a debug, I get the following:
    Code:
    Unable to cast COM object of type 'System.__ComObject' to interface type 'Skybound.Gecko.nsInterfaces'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{A88E5A60-205A-4BB1-94E1-2628DAF51EAE}' failed due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)).
    Which it highlights the following line under ApplicationEvents
    Code:
    Skybound.Gecko.Xpcom.Initialize(xrPath)

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    Hey Guys, I know this is a really old topic, but, Since its on this subject, Why create something new, when its based on the same thing? (Zombie Apocalypse?)

    Im trying to take this code here:
    Code:
    Private Sub AxWebBrowser1_NewWindow2(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AxSHDocVw.DWebBrowserEvents2_NewWindow2Event) Handles AxWebBrowser1.NewWindow2
        ' Dim t As New TabPage
        'Dim newtab As New tab
        '   newtab.Show()
        '  newtab.Dock = DockStyle.Fill
        ' newtab.AxWebBrowser1.RegisterAsBrowser = True
        'e.ppDisp = newtab.AxWebBrowser1.Application
        ' newtab.Visible = True
        ' newtab.TopLevel = False
        ' t.Controls.Add(newtab)
        ' Form1.TabControl1.TabPages.Add(t)
        ' Form1.TabControl1.SelectedTab = t
        '  newtab.Focus()
        'End Sub
    And transform it to work with this:

    Code:
        Private Sub GeckoWebBrowser1_CreateWindow(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Skybound.Gecko.GeckoCreateWindowEventArgs) Handles GeckoWebBrowser1.CreateWindow
            Dim t As New TabPage
            Dim newtab As New tab
            newtab.Show()
            newtab.Dock = DockStyle.Fill
            newtab.GeckoWebBrowser1.RegisterAsBrowser = True
            e.ppDisp = newtab.GeckoWebBrowser1.Application
            newtab.Visible = True
            newtab.TopLevel = False
            t.Controls.Add(newtab)
            Form1.TabControl1.TabPages.Add(t)
            Form1.TabControl1.SelectedTab = t
            newtab.Focus()
        End Sub
    The errors I am receiving are as follows:

    1. 'RegisterAsBrowser' is not a member of 'Skybound.Gecko.GeckoWebBrowser'.

    2. 'ppDisp' is not a member of 'Skybound.Gecko.GeckoCreateWindowEventArgs'.

    3. 'Application' is not a member of 'Skybound.Gecko.GeckoWebBrowser'.


    Would anyone know the "functions" of Skybound.Gecko, To get around those errors? or how I can fix that so it works with Gecko. Im trying to get out of using IE stuff for my browser, as its causing issues.. So I wanted to take another try using Gecko Engine. But stuck at that point.

    (again, I apologize for resurrecting an old thread)

    Re: Mozilla / Firefox / Gecko in VB.NET

    Hello. I am creating a user control with a tabbed browser. I have followed the instructions in the original post exactly. I can add the geckobrowser to the control or to a test form without issue, but when trying to add my control to the test form, I get an error that xpcom can't be found. Then Visual Studio crashes. This happens with vs2010 or vs2013.
