Hello Powerbuilders....!

The WebBrowser control sometimes works... and sometimes doesn't!

On the following screenshot, on the left I places a WebBrowser control and on the right the MS Internet browser.


This is the code on Window's open event is quite simple:

String sURL

sURL = 'https://www.appeon.com/'
ole_1.object.Navigate(sURL, 0, "", "", "");

int r
r = wb_1.navigate(sURL);
if r <> 1 then
post messageBox('', r);
end if;


As you can see on the screenshot, the WebBrowser produces an error, while the MS control shows the webpage.

Sometimes.. the WebBrowser works... sometimes...

So I was wondering if you have any advice to make, on what should I change, what should I look for, in order to make it work.

Did you have any similar experience with it?

Hi Yainnis;

  Is this a test using the PB2019 R2 Beta release? If so, please open a support ticket for this issue and also attach your PB App above as a Test Case. Many thanks in advance!

Regards ... Chris

I have the same problem like Yiannis. Sometimes the webbrowser control loads a site, but somestimes it doesn't.

Is there a solution for this behaviour? I am using Appeon PowerBuilder 2019 R2 Built 2328

Thank you , Raimund 

Hi Raimund

I never tested it on build 2328, but since you are still experiencing these problems, I think Appeon is still working on it.
