I recently played around with the new Webbrowser control delivered with the SP1 update of .NET 3.5 .
But when i tried to use it in a WPF Window that has its WindowStyle set to None and AllowsTransparency to True (due to some custom window drawing), i noticed that the Webbrowser control disappeared.
The Webbrowser control is just a native Win32 Hwnd that gets hosted inside some WPF content area. But it’s quite annoying that the Transparency stuff gets pass on to it.
I wonder how i could circumvent this limitation as i don’t need transparency in the webbrowser control itself. Its just to get some homegrown, fancy-looking window style.
I’m looking forward to see this fixed by Microsoft in some future release.
