ChromiumFX - New .NET bindings for CEF

Built a cool app using CEF that you'd like to share with the community? Talk about it here.

Hi,
regarding Mono at Linux, there is some work in progress and a prototype:
https://bitbucket.org/chromiumfx/chromi ... no-support

The core CEF wrapper (ChromiumFX.dll) works but without the remote layer. The webbrowser control implementation (ChromiumWebBrowser.dll) doesn't work.

It's far away from "supports Linux", and I won't be able to work on this anytime soon.

Regarding transparency, I never tried. But whatever you can accomplish with native CEF, you should be able to do with ChromiumFX as well.

Is it possible to use ChromiumFX inside an App Domain? For example, if I click on a button in Excel ribbon and open a WebForm, can I display ChromiumFX inside that WebForm?

Hi,

thanks for your feedback. You can find a prototype of a windowless browser for mono at linux in the project. It kind of works for the cef wrapper classes - however no webbrowser control, no remote layer (CEF internal RPC should work though). And I won't be able to work on that anytime soon so if you want to give it a try, you are basically on your own. You can find some discussion about it in the project issues.

EDIT: Ops, looks like I just responded (again) an old question :)

Running ChromiumFX inside an App Domain should work. Probably you need a dedicated executable assembly for secondary processes.

Can you explain what you mean "Probably you need a dedicated executable assembly for secondary processes"?

I ask, because my goal is to use CEF inside of an outlook add-in, and then I stumbled across ChromiumFX which seems, ideal, but honestly the documentation does not help with that determination at all.

I suppose you want to embed a browser in an Outlook form/region or so.
Technically I think it might be possible, but it will be far more harder than IWebBrowser2.

Also, you are hosted inside another executable, and the Outlook message loop and STA requirements are quite a pain in the ass anyways.
I don't know if you can run an Outlook add-in as a separate executable.

A (crazy?) idea might be to run your exe in OSR mode, and have the add-in dll acting as proxy (drawing the OSR bitmap inside the form region).
