embedded pdf, flash,... does not work in eclipse help with internal browser [message #748469] Mon, 24 October 2011 14:02 Go to next message

Hi
I wanted to display a pdf file directly within a help page using the
<object> tag with type "application/pdf". When i am using the internal
browser, this does not work. If i configure the help system to always use an
external browser (IE in my case) it works perfectly. The the problem i
recognized with flash animation.

Is there a way to configure the internal browser to be able to handle
<object> tag for different mime types properly?
I think, the problem are the additional browser plugins used i.e. to display
a PDF document.



thanks in advance for information

Hi,

If this works for you in stand-alone IE then it should work in IE
embedded in the Browser control as well. You mention "application/pdf"
but then later specify flash. Which one is it?

Are you using 32- or 64-bit eclipse/swt? If it's 64-bit then my guess
is that you have the 32-bit pdf/flash plugin installed, which is not
compatible with 64-bit embedded IE.

If this is not the problem then can you provide the subset of lines from
your html file that are attempting to embed the pdf/flash content?

I am using the 64-bit eclipse/swt.
In the meantime i was succesful running a swt brower example with an
embedded flash animation after i have reinstalled the flash plugin. It could
have been a problem with the plugin which is now a 64-bit version.
But i could not find a 64-bit version of acrobat reader.

My latest tests i did with the PDF version of the Hibenate documentation.
This page even does not use any <object> tags but the problem stays the
same. If you click on any PDF-link directly from within astandalone IE
browser instance PDF file is displayed embedded. If you run the exeample
code blow and do the same an extra acrobat reader window is opened and the
embedded browser does not change its contents
public class SWTBrowserExample {

private Shell shell = null;
private Browser browser = null;

private static final String url = "http://www.hibernate.org/docs.html";
private static final String title = "SWTBrowserExample";

public static void main(String[] args) {
Display display = new Display();
SWTBrowserExample browser = new SWTBrowserExample();
browser.createBrowser();
browser.shell.open();

while (!browser.shell.isDisposed()) {
if (!display.readAndDispatch()) {
display.sleep();
}
}
display.dispose();
}

private void createBrowser() {
shell = new Shell();
shell.setLayout(new FillLayout());
shell.setSize(new Point(800, 800));
shell.setLocation(new Point(100, 100));
shell.setText(title);

browser = new Browser(shell, SWT.BORDER);
browser.setUrl(url);
}
}

If you're using 64-bit eclipse/swt without a 64-bit acrobat plug-in then
I would not expect this to work. When you say that it works for you in
stand-alone IE, are you definitely launching 64-bit Internet Explorer?
The default IE (without "(64-bit)" beside its name) is 32-bit.

You are right. There is a 32bit and a 64bit version of the IE installed and
m< default was the 32bit IE. Thats why it was working in the standalone IE.
With the 64bit IE flash is working becasue there exists a 64bit version of
the plugin but Adobe Reader plugin does not exist as 64bit version.

Thanks for help
