html-browser

A subclass of dialog that is designed for browsing web pages and HTML files. Creating an instance by calling make-window (or the convenience function html-browser) will automatically add an instance of html-widget to the dialog, plus a toolbar with common HTML-browsing widgets, and optionally a common-status-bar. You can call display-html on the dialog to display a web page or file in the html-widget child.

The toolbar contains a multi-picture-button that has buttons that call html-widget-go-back, html-widget-go-forward, html-widget-reload, and html-widget-stop-load. It also contains a combo-box where you can type in a URL or path namestring and press the Enter key to display that page. There is also a Go button that can be clicked instead of pressing the Enter key.

The name of the child html-widget will be :html, so you can pass that name to find-component to find the child html-widget of an html-browser. The multi-picture-button is named :multipic, the combo-box is named :combo, and the go button is named :go.

If this dialog is not adequate, you can instead create your own dialog that includes an html-widget.

A diagram of window and widget classes is shown in Widget and window classes in cgide.htm.
