The closest I could get(NOT embedded!!!):
use Win32::OLE;
use Win32::GUI;
my $win = new Win32::GUI::Window (
    -name   => "Window",
 #-topmost => 1,
    -left   => 100,
    -top    => 100,
    -width  => 550,
    -height => 550,
    #-maxsize  => [550,550],
    #-minsize  => [205,228],
    -text   => "PC 4.0 Keys",
 -maximizebox => 0,
 -minimizebox =>1,
 -helpbutton => 0,
 -resizable =>0,
my $ie = Win32::OLE->new('InternetExplorer.Application');
$ie->{AddressBar} =0;
$ie->Navigate( '');
$ie->{MenuBar} =0;
$ie->{Top} =110;
$ie->{Left} =110;
$ie->{height} =500;
$ie->{width} =500;
$ie->{StatusBar} =0;
$ie->{ToolBar} =0;
$ie->{Resizable} = 0;
$ie->{Visible} =1;
sub Window_Terminate {
 undef $ie;
 return -1;
This does however, give you programtic control over the IE window created.   To my knowledge, there is no way to "embed" it into the gui window.   I will be using something like this to copy information from IE to a GUI window( name, address, etc.) and then save the GUI data to a DB.   What I had thought of doing was making the GUI window resized to take up the left half of the screen and resize the IE window to take up the right side of the screen when the IE window is opened.  Sorry, but this is the best I can do for you.  It would be great if they could be embeded directly, so then I could also embed Word, Excel, etc.....  Heck, I would probably be able to afford to donate $10  if someone could figure out a way to hack the current version of Win32::GUI( doubtful) or add it to the next version( and then release it!!).

Subject: RE: [perl-win32-gui-users] Embedding a browser window of some sort?...

Not sure exactly what you're asking but the easiest way I've found to open html files with the users' preferred browser is to let the OS decide and simply execute that file like so:
This works on NT4, but I doubt it would work on Win9x/ME. If that's the OS you're working with I suppose your script could use Win32::Registry to find the default browser.
But, of course, this may not have been your question :)

Subject: [perl-win32-gui-users] Embedding a browser window of some sort?...

I think a question similar to this may have been asked, but i didn't find it in the mailing list archive, so here goes...I'm looking to make or embed a web browser window of some sort as part of my own win32::gui program.  i wouldnt really like to use any specific browser (ie, netscape, etc.), because different people use different browsers, so is there perhaps some sort of small existing program i could use to interpret and display html properly?
