HTMLEdit Sample: Wraps the Internet Explorer MSHTML Editing Control

The HTMLEdit sample shows how to use the MFC classes that wrap the Internet Explorer WebBrowser ActiveX control. In editing mode, the WebBrowser ActiveX control exposes what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) editing functionality. The MFC and libraries provide classes that host the MSHTML editing control in a window class and provide convenient wrapper classes for the control's properties, methods, and events.

For more information on the Web Browser ActiveX control, see Reusing Browser Technology in Web Workshop.


You must install Internet Explorer version 5 or later to get the proper editing functionality in the WebBrowser ActiveX control.

Building and Running the Sample

To build and run the HTMLEdit sample

  1. Open the solution HTMLEdit.sln.
