I'm programming a web browser and I don't like it that my web browser actually runs from Internet Explorer instead of my application itself, is it possible for my web browser to have it's own proxy, "internet disconnected" page, I.p., etc. (like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera) I've had heard of Win Sock before, but I do not have extensive knowledge on that subject, but Am willing to learn anything you tell me (including Win Sock).
Simple Thanks and Regards,
Brandon T. H.
Been programming in Visual Basic for 4 years this point forward, and is very good at it (I can even create programs completely on code, without dragging those items from the toolbox). Programming C++ for 1 year so far and the same with C#.

You have to jump through some flamming hoops to get this to work. You can see an example of it here[^].
Basically, the Web Browser control is a managed wrapper for whatever version of IE is install on your machine. Since you're running IE in a window, it'll use all the settings you set in IE, unless you smash the Web Browser control with a large hammer.
I have two reports, done with Crystal Reports, in my project currently. I'm forever having trouble with Crystal Reports and these problems are now causing deployment problems. I'm getting very tired of fighting thru the myriad of problems I've had with Crystal Reports and I want to explore the possibility, desirability of eliminating CR from my project altogether and producing these reports in a diffferent manner.
I would like to know what others have found best.
The reports that I currently have are pretty rudimentary. Just some simple formatting; no graphics, tables, colors, etc.
I know of three other possibilities; 1) using the Report capabilities of VS, 2) automating Word from VS, or 3) writing a text file from VS and then using Word VBA to manipulate it to produce the reports.
Do you know of any others?
Of the options that I've thought of; keeping Crystal Reports, Microsoft Reporting Services, automating Word, and passing a text file to Word; would you consider any of these to be superior to the others? Which way should I go?
I don't know how to do any of these ways. I will have to learn. So, the difficulty, or ease, of the learning process is definitely a consideration.
Any advice or words of wisdom that you might have for me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Thank you Dave. You gave me just what I needed and I appreciate it. Another person advised me to use Reporting Services and that is now what I intend to do. I've got some 'book learning' to do but I'm now ready to go. You saved me from going down the wrong road. Thanks. Jack
