I have not looked at C++ code for 7 years and so need a bit of help with this. I basically need to have a dll installed on a client machine. This dll will be called from another program. The dll will need to open a customed browser (basically I need to change it so that it looks more like an application than a browser), the dll will tell the browser the link to connect to. This will call a PHP script on a server which will then display as a normal site. I need to be able to control the focus of the browser window, so if the user presses the close button, it will hide the window, etc.
I have seen that you can achieve most of this using CHTMLView - my question here is how do you incorporate this into a dll? I am using Microsoft Visual studio to set up my projects.
Also is MFC the correct approach when this will be installed on a client machine, or does this even matter?
I have also looked at using IWebBrowser2, but I'm finding it hard to get clear examples!
As you can see I am in need of direction!
