Syntax

element createBrowser ( int width, int height, bool isLocal [, bool transparent = false ] )

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 a 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
)
