WebBrowserComponent in initially hidden component fails


#1

Hi,

if you have a WebBrowserComponent (windows) in an initially hidden container it fails to work.

The code below contains a fully working example of the bug.

#ifndef __MAINCOMPONENT_H_5B20A610__
#define __MAINCOMPONENT_H_5B20A610__

#include "../JuceLibraryCode/JuceHeader.h"

class WebBrowserContainerComponent : public Component
{
public:
    WebBrowserContainerComponent()
    {
        addAndMakeVisible(m_WebBrowser = new WebBrowserComponent(false));
        m_WebBrowser->setBounds(0, 0, 400, 500);
    }

    ScopedPointer<WebBrowserComponent> m_WebBrowser;
};

class MainContentComponent   : public Component, public Button::Listener
{
public:
    //==============================================================================
    MainContentComponent()
    {
        addAndMakeVisible(m_Button = new TextButton());
        m_Button->setButtonText("Click me!");
        m_Button->setBounds(10, 10, 100, 20);
        m_Button->addListener(this);

        addAndMakeVisible(m_WebBrowser1 = new WebBrowserComponent(false));
        m_WebBrowser1->setBounds(0, 40, 400, 500);
        m_WebBrowser1->goToURL("http://www.google.com");

        addAndMakeVisible(m_WebBrowser2 = new WebBrowserContainerComponent());
        m_WebBrowser2->setBounds(400, 40, 400, 500);

        //uncomment the next line to see the problem!
        //m_WebBrowser2->setVisible(false);

        setSize (800, 600);
    }

    void buttonClicked(Button* button)
    {
        m_WebBrowser2->setVisible(true);
        m_WebBrowser2->m_WebBrowser->goToURL("http://www.google.com");
    }

private:
    ScopedPointer<WebBrowserComponent> m_WebBrowser1;
    ScopedPointer<WebBrowserContainerComponent> m_WebBrowser2;
    ScopedPointer<TextButton> m_Button;

    //==============================================================================
    JUCE_DECLARE_NON_COPYABLE_WITH_LEAK_DETECTOR (MainContentComponent)
};

#endif  // __MAINCOMPONENT_H_5B20A610__

As the webbrowser component fails to work in a modal window (see some other thread…) so I need to show it non-modal. But… I need to hide this non-modal window at startup, and that fails. I will work around the problem by CREATING the component when I need it instead of hiding it at the start, but I thought this was a pesky little bug that could probably solved by relatively simple logic…
