[SOLVED] Possible to render HTML ?

I have a WCF service that returns a report in the form of an HTML snippet (nothing fancy, just a few tables).

Is there any simple way to render the returned HTML in a control or on the page?

If so could you show a quick example?

Thanks....

This works, but I would like to have something cleverer

Code: Select all

        private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            string html = "<body>This is a new window!</body></html>";

            CSHTML5.Interop.ExecuteJavaScript(
@"var oNewWin = window.open(""about:blank"", ""Report"", ""height=150,width=300,top=10,left=10,resizable=yes"");
oNewWin.document.open();
oNewWin.document.write(""<html><head><title>New Window</title></head>"");
oNewWin.document.write($0);
oNewWin.document.close();", html);
        }

HTML at runtime [SOLVED]

It turns out to be pretty easy once you figure it all out. In this example a have a StackPanel named stackPanel1 where I want to display the HTML dynamically at run time

Code: Select all

    <StackPanel>
        <Button Content="Show HTML" Background="White" FontSize="22" Click="Button_Click" />
        <StackPanel x:Name="stackPanel1" />
    </StackPanel>


The following will preform this task

Code: Select all

        public class HtmlWrapper : Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Control
        {
            public HtmlWrapper(string pHtmlToRender)
            {
                CSharpXamlForHtml5.DomManagement.SetHtmlRepresentation(this, pHtmlToRender);
            }
        }

        private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            string html = "<table><tr><td>This</td><td>is</td></tr><tr><td>a</td><td>test</td></tr></table>";
            stackPanel1.Children.Clear();
            stackPanel1.Children.Add(new HtmlWrapper(html));
        }

Dear rkmore,
first of all thanks for your kind help.

It's great for more or less 'static' content.

We have a lot of property what we have to set/get dinamically by runtime + hierarchical UI structures :(
-so: it is definitely possible to do that theoretically with above-mentioned way,
but practically for our use case: it tremendous extra job.

Thanks again,
Best Regards,
P├ęter

Hi,
Here is an example in XAML:

Code: Select all

<Page
    x:Class="Application1.MainPage"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:native="clr-namespace:CSHTML5.Native.Html.Controls;assembly=CSharpXamlForHtml5">
    <Border>
        <native:HtmlPresenter Html="&lt;canvas id=&quot;demo_canvas&quot; Style=&quot;width:100%;height:100%&quot; /&gt;"/>
    </Border>
</Page>

Alternatively, you can use C#, like this: MyHtmlPresenter1.Html = @"<div />";
