How to best load an image from a URL using TWebBrowser when targeting multiple devices

by Dec 22, 2015


In this snippet, I placed a TWebBrowser control onto my FireMonkey form and aligned it to the client. I then set up the following OnFormCreate event to load a web image into the browser control. I also restricted the image size to the screen dimensions of the device.


procedure TWebBrowserImageDemo.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  cHtmlString = '<img src=%s width=100%% height=100%%>';
  UrlOfImage: string;
  UrlOfImage := '';  //replace with your own URL
  WebBrowser1.LoadFromStrings(Format(cHtmlString, [UrlOfImage]), '');


As you can see in the screenshots below, regardless of the device dimensions, the image that is loaded from the URL is automatically resized to fit into the client aligned web browser control.
