Available only in graphical environments, the Web browser control uses the run-time to browse the Web; invoke e-mail, telnet, and FTP services; and display multimedia and other file types. It also allows users to view Windows folders and files. It is used just like any other ACUCOBOL-GT control.
The Web browser control is installed with Microsoft Internet Explorer. It allows the user to view the main window of the Microsoft Internet Explorer on a screen created by the Screen Designer. It provides the functionality for displaying Web pages containing HTML, scripting, and ActiveX controls and Java applet content.
