Embed Chrome Browser
Can you embed a Non-OI form into the SRP panel control as long as you get the Handle to the Non-OI form? I want to embed a chromium browser into an OI form and I thought I'd ask before experimenting.
It should work in theory. The panel control isn't doing anything OI-specific to the forms. It does alter the Window's style bits to convert it into a child window without title bars.
Ok - sounds promising. Thanks.
How do you get a handle to a chrome browser?
That's a good question. The way I've been doing it in my prototype is using an AutoHotkey script that can find the Handle of a Window that has a specific title. I'd like to see if there would be a better way to do it within OpenInsight if anyone has any ideas.
- Normally you would use the
API to get the handle.
- You should have a copy of the
module from your FrameWorks system. There is a service called
that you can use. You can pass in the caption of a running desktop window and it will return the handle for you.

how do you call the FindWindow API from OI?
- It's already defined in OI so you can call it as if it was a regular function.
