This function creates a new CEGUI web browser element.

Syntax

gui-browser guiCreateBrowser ( float x, float y, float width, float height, bool isLocal, bool isTransparent, bool isRelative [ , element parent = nil ] )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: GuiBrowser(...)

Required Arguments

  • x: A float of the 2D x position of the browser on a player's screen. This is affected by the relative argument.
  • y: A float of the 2D y position of the browser on a player's screen. This is affected by the relative argument.
  • 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 over here for more information)
  • isTransparent: true if you want the browser to support transparency, false otherwise
  • isRelative: This is whether sizes and positioning are relative. If this is true, then all x,y,width,height floats must be between 0 and 1, representing sizes/positions as a fraction of the screen size. If false, then the size and co-ordinates are based on client's resolution, accessible using guiGetScreenSize.

Optional Arguments

  • parent: This is the parent that the radio button is attached to. If the relative argument is true, sizes and positioning will be made relative to this parent. If the relative argument is false, positioning will be the number of offset pixels from the parent's origin. If no parent is passed, the parent will become the screen - causing positioning and sizing according to screen positioning.

Returns

Returns a gui-browser element if it was created successfully, false otherwise. Returns also false, if the user disabled remote pages and isLocal was set to false.

Example

This examples attaches a web browser to a CEGUI window.

-- In order to render the browser fullscreen, we need to get the dimensions of the screen
local screenWidth, screenHeight = guiGetScreenSize( )

-- Let's create a new browser in remote mode
local window = guiCreateWindow( 0, 0, screenWidth, screenHeight, "Web Browser", false )
local browser = guiCreateBrowser( 0, 28, screenWidth, screenHeight, false, false, false, window )
local theBrowser = guiGetBrowser( browser ) -- Get the browser element from gui-browser

-- 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
addEventHandler( "onClientBrowserCreated", theBrowser, 
	function( )
		-- After the browser has been initialized, we can load www.youtube.com
		loadBrowserURL( source, "https://www.youtube.com/" )
	end
)
