Example

-- 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, false, 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 website.
		loadBrowserURL(webBrowser, "https://www.youtube.com/")

		-- Now we can start to render the browser.
		addEventHandler("onClientRender", root, webBrowserRender)
	end
