Can we currently compile Chromium WebGadget on x86?

Hi skinkairewalker,

Yes, but a 32-bit compiled executable can only run in an x86 Windows environment; same for a 64-bit compiled executable.

----------------------------------------------

Updated:
- various framework optimizations
- various example improvements
- squashed a couple bugs

Updated:
- renamed Cr_WebSocket_Close to Cr_WebGadget_Close
- removed some framework Procedures
- added some framework Procedures
- modified most framework Procedures

NOTE: Included script by luis: HTMLEncoder / HTMLDecoder; currently used in the example CrWG_TabBar.pb.

Cr_WebGadget_Close
1. Rename Cr_WebSocket_Close to Cr_WebGadget_Close.
2. Cr_WebGadget_Close now requires the crwg_data\hWnd parameter.
3. Each Chromium WebGadget now requires a call to Cr_WebGadget_Close.

Due to the framework changes this is a recommended update.

Updated:
- various improvements to CrWG_TabBar.pb

NOTE: CrWG_TabBar.pb is an advanced example not meant to be used as a replacement browser, but to demonstrate some additional features.

CrWG_TabBar.pb
Improved the algorithm to identify and retrieve a websites favicon.
Added filters to the Target.setDiscoverTargets method.
Numerous other improvements.

Updated:
- various improvements to CrWG_TabBar.pb

CrWG_TabBar.pb
Replaced the Runtime.runScript method with Page.addScriptToEvaluateOnNewDocument.
Replaced the algorithm to identify and retrieve a websites favicon.
Improved the History window and the use of icons.

Previously, I spent a day optimizing the Runtime.runScript method and writing a download favicon algorithm. No sooner do I finish and post the update, I find a less complicated solution for script execution and a much simpler method for downloading favicons.

Looking good JHPJHP.

Wishing to try out the new features, I downloaded the EXE version.

The TabBar sample worked well , but the ChartJS sample returns 'file not found'.

It looks as if the sample requires files that are located in my temporary folder.

Of course there aren't any.

Any hints?

PS - I have a program that cleans out my temporary folder every few days.
- It was too lonely at the top.

System : PB 6.02 (ASM) and Win Pro 11 (x64)
Hardware: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X w/64 gigs Ram, AMD RX 6950 XT Graphics w/16gigs Mem

Hi blueb,

Thank you for your feedback.

I just realized an option used for testing was still set and has since been removed, but I'm not convinced it's what caused the problem.

It sounds more like an AV issue...
The file created in your Temp folder is flagged as a virus and removed before the program can establish a lock.

Updated:
- renamed CrWG_TabBar.pb to CrWG_Browser.pb
- changes to DevTools Event order in CrWG_Browser.pb and CrWG_Player.pb

DevTools Event Order
Plays an important part in not only optimized script execution but may determine if some scripts get executed.
Calling the Runtime.enable method will not always trigger an event; a simple solution was to execute it last in the event chain.

The example CrWG_Browser.pb has been updated with improvements to the address bar.
1. Doubles as a search bar.
2. Improved Navigation and History buttons.
3. History window tracks current index.

Given your recent productivity, I feel I should tell you that you are allowed to sleep. You know that, right?

The Chromium WebGadget has been updated to version 4

There have been numerous changes, mostly minor improvements, but a couple major updates to warrant a version change.

The ContainerGadget hosting the browser has been replaced with a dynamically created container better suited for the environment.
This update required various changes to the framework and examples, one of which is a new method for opening a Chromium WebGadget.

Another update consisted of moving the Network Event scripts to the framework, reducing the required code for a working example.

In addition, a few framework options have been added and most of the existing ones have been renamed to be more intuitive.

Code: Select all

#Cr_WebGadget_Override_Profile_Location
#Cr_WebGadget_Override_Default_Browser
#Cr_WebGadget_Override_User_Agent
#Cr_WebGadget_Override_Language_Code
#Cr_WebGadget_Override_Network_Warning
#Cr_WebGadget_Override_Camera_Prompt
#Cr_WebGadget_Enable_Guest_Account
#Cr_WebGadget_Enable_Zero_Account
#Cr_WebGadget_Enable_Multiple_Tabs
#Cr_WebGadget_Enable_Screen_Support
#Cr_WebGadget_Enable_Dark_Mode
#Cr_WebGadget_Enable_Night_Mode
#Cr_WebGadget_Idle_Timeout_Minutes
#Cr_WebSocket_Listen_Port_Number
#Cr_WebSocket_Listen_Port_Random
#Cr_WebSocket_Override_Port_InUse
#Cr_WebSocket_Enable_DevTools_Protocol
#Cr_WebSocket_Enable_DevTools_Events
#Cr_WebSocket_Enable_DevTools_Debugger
NOTE: Reviewing the examples should provide most of the information needed to update existing programs or create new ones.

This should be my last post for a while concerning CrWG; the changes made today stripped away most of the complicated code.
With exception CrWG_Browser.pb, CrWG_Command.pb and CrWG_Player.pb, written to demonstrate CrWG capabilities.

---------------------------------------------------------

Updated:
- moved common script elements to the framework
- changed some default framework options
- improved the profile location script
- improved the CLS location script
- squashed a PATH bug

Default profile directory and some example stuff: C:\Users\[NAME]\AppData\Roaming\CrWG\.
User-defined command line switches: Same location as executable, switches folder.

Simplest example using the Chromium WebGadget
- the DevTools Protocol is enabled by default, but can easily be disabled

Code: Select all

Enumeration
  #MainWindow
EndEnumeration

#Cr_WebSocket_Enable_DevTools_Protocol = #False

IncludeFile "..\Shared Files\includes\Cr_WebGadget.pbi"

If OpenWindow(#MainWindow, 0, 0, 800, 500, "Chromium WebGadget", #PB_Window_SystemMenu | #PB_Window_ScreenCentered)
  crwg_data.CrWG_DATA
  crwg_data\Container = Cr_WebGadget(0, 0, 800, 500, #MainWindow)
  crwg_data\StartURL = "https://www.youtube.com"
  Cr_WebGadget_Init(crwg_data, #PB_Compiler_Filename)

  Repeat
    Event = WaitWindowEvent()

    Select Event
      Case #PB_Event_CloseWindow
        Cr_WebGadget_Close(crwg_data\hWnd)
        Break
    EndSelect
  ForEver
EndIf
NB*: Free executables (x86/x64) were updated and can be downloaded from My PureBasic Stuff; see FREE STUFF.
