Simple WebBrowser (IE) class in Pure C++

Introduction

This is IWebBrowser2 (Internet Explorer core), embedded into a window, like WebView in MFC or WebBrowser in .NET, by using interfaces IOleClientSiteIOleInPlaceSite, and IStorage.

This is the WebBrowser class header.

protected:

    IOleInPlaceObject* oleInPlaceObject;

    IWebBrowser2* webBrowser2;

    LONG iComRefCount;

    RECT rObject;

    HWND hWndParent;
    HWND hWndControl;

};

As you can see, it inherits classes IOleClientSite, IOleInPlaceSite and IStorage, and implements their methods.

Most methods are definited by default, such as

HRESULT STDMETHODCALLTYPE WebBrowser::DiscardUndoState(void)
{
    return E_NOTIMPL;
}

or

HRESULT STDMETHODCALLTYPE WebBrowser::OnUIDeactivate( 
    BOOL fUndoable)
{
    return S_OK;
}

But some methods' code is changed, to integrate with IWebBrowser2 and parent window, such as

HRESULT STDMETHODCALLTYPE WebBrowser::GetWindowContext( 
    __RPC__deref_out_opt IOleInPlaceFrame **ppFrame,
    __RPC__deref_out_opt IOleInPlaceUIWindow **ppDoc,
    __RPC__out LPRECT lprcPosRect,
    __RPC__out LPRECT lprcClipRect,
    __RPC__inout LPOLEINPLACEFRAMEINFO lpFrameInfo)
{
    HWND hwnd = hWndParent;

    (*ppFrame) = NULL;
    (*ppDoc) = NULL;
    (*lprcPosRect).left = rObject.left;
    (*lprcPosRect).top = rObject.top;
    (*lprcPosRect).right = rObject.right;
    (*lprcPosRect).bottom = rObject.bottom;
    *lprcClipRect = *lprcPosRect;

    lpFrameInfo->fMDIApp = false;
    lpFrameInfo->hwndFrame = hwnd;
    lpFrameInfo->haccel = NULL;
    lpFrameInfo->cAccelEntries = 0;

    return S_OK;
}
