    Lightbulb MS Internet Controls Alternative With CSS/Print

    Microsoft Internet Controls, the stock with VB6, is very outdated and is only an emulator of a browser with limited browser version compatibility.

    Well in new developments of webpages and its usefulness in coding, I am surprised I cannot find any solutions to have an internet control for VB6!

    Would we pay for such a compliment to VB6 to have the ability of CSS(and printing) in an alternative internet control?

    Share your findings. Help those of us still in love with VB6.

    To remain compatibile with old applications, by default IE falls back to old behavior when invoked as a WebBrowser control.

    See FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION

    This is pretty old news. Feature emulation has been around since IE 8 came out back in 2009. If you want different emulation your program needs a registry entry to select one.

    OK well .. if you were to rely upon the MS internet control ..
    What I am talking about is a replacement control either partially or fully created in VB6 that has CSS and printing capabilities.

    I suppose you might look at this:
