    Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser. Last updated: 23rd July 2010

    Note: VB.Net Version can be found here.

    With the consent of jmcilhinney, I have taken the original Tabbed Web Browser code which you can find here:

    http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=506103

    C# version can be found here:

    http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=609879

    And started extending it to include some additional functionality. The first major addition is the ability to enumerate and to the Favourites that are contained within the Users Favourites folder on their machine. Details regarding how this was achieved can be found in this post:

    Gary Ewan Park

    Update history:

    23rd December 2011

    I took jmcilhinney's original code and added the following:
    1. Favourites TreeView populated with all Favourites in User's Favourites Folder
    2. Ability to delete selected Favourite from TreeView
    3. Ability to add new Favourite based on currently viewed web page
    4. Ability to add new Folders within the Favourite Folder
    5. Ability to hide the Favourites TreeView


    Todo List:
    1. Implement Feeds Section
    2. Implement History Section
    3. Ability to delete entire Favourites Directory from TreeView
    4. Add icons to TreeView for both Directories and individual Favourites using FavIcons


    Feel free to make more suggestions for things to add.

    Known Issues:
    None at present, but feel free to submit issues by posting a comment.

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    Hey,

    Can you describe the exact steps that you are using to produce these problems? They don't look like they should be happening, but if I can reproduce them, I will update the code with corrections.

    Thanks

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    Hello Amberg,

    If I remember correctly (it has been a while since I have looked at it), I haven't implemented this functionality. At the minute, you can only add and delete.

    It should be a simple extension of the current source code, so if I get a chance in the next while I will try to add this functionality.

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    Anyone else have trouble running this? Whenever i try to debug
    NullReferenceExemption was unhandled
    this.tabs.AddTab();
    Line 83 MainWindow.cs

    and

    Warning 1 Field 'Enhanced_CS_Tabbed_Web_Browser.MainWindow.tabs' is never assigned to, and will always have its default value null
    @
    Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser\MainWindow.Designer.cs 537 69 Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    I'm only a beginner so it's more than a bit confusing!

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    Hello,

    Did you download the code directly from GitHub, and open it in Visual Studio? Did you make any changes?

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    The .sln file icons are different, when i click on the .sln icon from your project it does nothing (nothing opens) i have to open visual studio first then file > open project.

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    Hello,

    Are you using Windows 7, and do you have UAC turned on? I so, this might be why the sln file is not opening, as it is definitely valid.

    You can find out more information about this here:

    http://blog.davidebbo.com/2011/04/op...-as-admin.html

    and here:

    https://www.re-motion.org/blogs/mix/...hen-launching/

    I have upgraded the project on GitHub to now use Visual Studio 2010, and I have just verified that I can open the solution file, compile the code, and debug it, and it works without any problems.

    Can you try the new code, and let me know how you get on?

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    Hello,

    I am not in a position to test that setup, as I do not have a machine with that configuration to hand.

    Have you tried the new version? Or which edition of Visual Studio Express are you using? 2008, or 2010?

    Thanks for the replies.
    Tried both 2008 and 2010, with 2010 I had to convert before opening but still got the very same coding error.

    Ok, I am going to have to get Visual Studio Express installed, and try this out. It works fine on the edition of Visual Studio I am using. I will do some research, and get back to you.

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    I followed your instructions on post no:21 and the application loads as normal
    then:

    Type www.google.com into the address box press enter
    Google loads as per normal
    I then enter a search phrase into Google press enter
    get results as expected
    click on one of these search results page loads
    if i click on a link on that webpage get error above
    'Argument out of range exemption', Value of 5310 is not valid for value, value should be between minimum and maximum, parameter name: value.

    I found a MSDN link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...exception.aspx

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    Hello,

    Ok, I have just tried to repeat this, and I can't get it to give the same error that you have described.

    The search term that I used was "test" and I can happily click on each of the links that the search returns, and each one appears in the tab as expected.

    Can you tell me the search term that you used, and what link you tried to click on?

    Re: Enhanced CS Tabbed Web Browser

    I removed the whole of line 399 from Mainform.cs
    this.pageLoadProgress.Value = (int)Math.Round(((double)(1000 * e.CurrentProgress / e.MaximumProgress)));

    Seems to have cured it
