Download & Display Graphics Files via HTTP

Download & Display Graphics Files via HTTP

Post by Wesley Cha » Thu, 19 Apr 2001 10:42:01



Hello,

We're trying to create a customized, full-screen web browser for a project for
the MIT Media Laboratory.  We're using the HTML View Control to parse and display
the code after downloading it via HTTP.

However, the control does not handle <Img> tags correctly.  For example, we can't
display <img src="http://www.media.mit.edu/front.gif">.  So if anyone can help,
we have the the following questions:

1) We plan to use the Imgdecmp.dll file that is included in IE to render and
display image files.  But as long as they are online, we have to cache them to
the Pocket PC first.  How do we download the images via http?  We don't want to
FTP them, so ideas would be much appreciated.

2) Does anyone else have suggestions on how to render and display image files
that are imbedded on a remote html page?

Thanks,
Wesley

I've used the HTML Viewer control with great success and have no complaints
about its image handling capabilities...

How did you manage to display images?

Did you get them via http and then used some imgdecoding routine (the one Mr
Chan mentioned, imgdecmp.dll,  is it documented somewhere?) and then sent
the control a message with the HBITMAP of the image you've just created?

I think that this procedure is way too laborous to create an html control so
quickly... it must take some time to work in a "browser", right??

Thanks,
Dario

1. What is the best way 2 programmatically display graphics files (ie JPEG, BMP) in Pocket PC?

Hi!

I'm new to Pocket PC multimedia, I'm trying to research the best way to
display (also zooming, etc) graphics file (ie JPEG, BMP) in a PDA (ie HP
Jornada) running Pocket PC. How can I do this programmatically? Is it better
to use GAPI, DirectX or just use the GDI APIs?

Can you give me some good websites where I can download some good samples on
how to do this?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Mon
