Hi,

 

I have a custom login dialog box in my C++ plugin. We want to now implement a SSO workflow from the login dialog box against a identify provider. For this, I need to be able to load a embedded browser inside a suitable control on my dialog (.fr files).

 

Is such a scenario supported in InDesign and if yes, would love to have some references

 

PS: I have explored the SDK samples but could not figure out much.

CEP is a technology based on Chromium. From experiments a few years ago I think at the plug-in side CEP panels are mostly regular panels with a special widget boss used for the HTML contents, communicating with an external faceless helper process which is the actual browser. I never tried though whether/how to embed that in a dialog.

While it is not yet available for InDesign, you should also keep an eye on the successor technology for CEP called UXP.

Hi,

 

I want to go through the route of integrating CEF browser into my InDesign Plugin. I am facing some issue in integrating the cef message loop on my InDesign dialog box. I would like to know if there are any references for InDesign and Cef integration.

 

Thanks
