Syntax

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: Browser(...)

Required Arguments

  • width: The browser's native width
  • height: The browser's native height
  • isLocal: Sets whether the browser can only show local content or content from the internet (see examples for more information)

Optional Arguments

  • transparent: true if you want the browser transparent, false for opaque.

Returns

Returns an texture of the browser if it was created successfully, false otherwise. Returns also false, if the user disabled remote pages and isLocal was set to false.

Local Example

Dialog-warning.png Warning: The scheme for local files has changed. Please read Local Scheme Handler for details.

This example shows you how to create a fullscreen web browser (showing a local html file) without input-handling.

--In order to render the browser on the full screen, we need to know the dimensions.
local screenWidth, screenHeight = guiGetScreenSize()

--Let's create a new browser in local mode. We will not be able to load an external URL.
local webBrowser = createBrowser(screenWidth, screenHeight, true, false)
	
--This is the function to render the browser.
function webBrowserRender()
	--Render the browser on the full size of the screen.
	dxDrawImage(0, 0, screenWidth, screenHeight, webBrowser, 0, 0, 0, tocolor(255,255,255,255), true)
end

--The event onClientBrowserCreated will be triggered, after the browser has been initialized.
--After this event has been triggered, we will be able to load our URL and start drawing.
addEventHandler("onClientBrowserCreated", webBrowser, 
	function()
		--After the browser has been initialized, we can load our file.
		loadBrowserURL(webBrowser, "http://mta/local/html/site.html")
		--Now we can start to render the browser.
		addEventHandler("onClientRender", root, webBrowserRender)
	end
)

Remote Example

This example shows you how to create a fullscreen web browser (showing youtube.com) without input-handling.
Remember, that youtube.com is on the global whitelist. If you want to load a domain/page that is not on the global whitelist, you have to request it with requestBrowserDomains.

--In order to render the browser on the full screen, we need to know the dimensions.
local screenWidth, screenHeight = guiGetScreenSize()

--Let's create a new browser in remote mode.
local webBrowser = createBrowser(screenWidth, screenHeight, false, false)
	
--Function to render the browser.
function webBrowserRender()
	--Render the browser on the full size of the screen.
	dxDrawImage(0, 0, screenWidth, screenHeight, webBrowser, 0, 0, 0, tocolor(255,255,255,255), true)
end

--The event onClientBrowserCreated will be triggered, after the browser has been initialized.
--After this event has been triggered, we will be able to load our URL and start drawing.
addEventHandler("onClientBrowserCreated", webBrowser, 
	function()
		--After the browser has been initialized, we can load www.youtube.com
		loadBrowserURL(webBrowser, "http://www.youtube.com")
		--Now we can start to render the browser.
		addEventHandler("onClientRender", root, webBrowserRender)
	end
)
