Hi Guys,

With the advent of Internet Explorer going to be deprecated in the next year (possible removed from Windows 10). I was wondering if anybody has developed using the MS WebView?

I want to be able to do the following:
  • open a webpage
  • set the position and dimensions of the web browser on screen
  • detect when a web page has loaded/rendered
  • detect when the web browser has been manually closed
  • detect when the navigation of a page has changed
  • programmatically close the web browser

I can currently do all of this (list above) now with Internet Explorer using Com-Object but, I want to be able to do this using Edge.

REF: Microsoft Edge WebView for Windows 10 apps - Microsoft Edge Development


Thanks in advance.

IE may get no new updates but I doubt it will ever be removed. Microsoft didn't remove it when Edge launched because lots of enterprise web applications and intranet portals require it.

IE is like Flash. Lots of crap will insist on continuing to use it until it is forcibly removed.

Just to add more context. The other major factor from moving away from IE is because the authenthentication sevice that I consume for OAuth is being upgraded and will not work with IE by design.
