Tip of day: Dynamically add webimageview to webpage

A client asked for adding a webImageView to a webpage. Okay, there is no plugin solution needed as this can be done if you try a few things:

dim i as new WebImageView

i.Name = "logoview"
i.URL = "http://www.monkeybreadsoftware.de/realcon2011logo/logo.php"
i.Left = 10
i.top = 10
i.Width = 460
i.Height = 80

self._addcontrol i

This works. How to find the _addcontrol method? Well, I first looked for embed method, insertcontrol, addcontrol, constructor parameters in the documentation. As there is nothing, I tried a few things. You can simply code and see what the compiler says. If you type "self._addcontrol" and compile you get either an unknown identifier or missing parameters. In the second case you know the method exists.

Any method you stumble across that begins with an underscore is a private, internal method of our framework that could change or even disappear entirely at any time. I would strongly recommend AGAINST using any of them.
