    OrdoWebview2 ActiveX WebView2 Browser Control (Replacement of the MS browser control)

    OrdoWebView2 ActiveX Control component
    OrdoWebview2 is an ActiveX control (ocx). It replaces the aging VB6 webview control based on a deprecated Internet Explorer!
    Microsoft's WebView2 control is a new component allowing you to include an Edge explorer, based on Chromium, in your own developments.
    OrdoWebView2 uses Olaf Schmitt's RC6 framework

    In fact, OrdoWebview2 is an ActiveX control interface to facilitate the task of developers who are more accustomed to an ActiveX control interface than to the manipulation of the RC6 Framework.

    The installation kit, downloadable here, installs the Ocx, the RC6 framework (which is deployed side-by-side without registration) and a fixed version of Microsoft's WebView2 control.
    It is of course possible to use the Evergreen version of WebView2 which is constantly updated.

    This component is released as freeware and can be downloaded from https://freeware.ordoconcept.net/OrdoWebview2.php
