Web Browser Component For Delphi XE5 Firemonkey On Windows

Delphi XE5 Firemonkey Windows Web Browser ChromiumThe web browser control (TWebBrowser) that ships with Delphi XE5 Firemonkey only supports Android and IOS. If you want to use a web browser control in Firemonkey on Windows one option is the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF). There are two different versions of the framework for Delphi which are Delphi CEF1 and Delphi CEF3. Both claim to support Firemonkey but I was not able to get either of them working out of the box with Delphi XE5 Firemonkey. I had a developer on oDesk update the Delphi CEF3 project to support Delphi XE5 Firemonkey for me. The XE5 package file was corrected and the paint event was updated so that it will now work on Delphi XE5 Firemonkey for Windows. When you use this TChromiumFMX component you will need to copy all of the files from the \cef_Chromium\bin\Win32 directory (or Win64) to whatever the final directory of your EXE file ends up being. You will also need to deploy all of these files with your application. I have two links below. The first one contains the Win32 and Win64 runtime files and the second download has no runtime files. If you already have the CEF3 file from Sourceforge you can download the second version.

    Thanks for your sharing. I worked with CEF3 before and it worked fine with Windows. Is there any chance that we can modify the component to work with OSX?

      Biggest reason I know of that causes errors is if you don’t have all the files in the directory where your EXE is at and/or the locales directory/files are not there.

    I have it compiling in Delphi. Have you tried to use it in a C++ project? I’m having trouble compiling it with the option set to generate the C++ header files. Thanks. David
