Web Frame

The Web Frame control provides a frame that allows external web content, such as .pdf files and static web pages, to be rendered onto a user form.

When a DriveWorks form refreshes, the browser may reload the web page.

Reloading can occur when (for example):

  • Form control values change
  • Manually refreshing (hitting the F5 key)
  • Re-orientating a tablet

This will cause unexpected behavior such as:

  • Browsing to a different page within the control will reload the current value for the URL property.
  • Videos being played within the Web Frame control will re-start.
The following items should be noted when using this control:
  • This control does not have a caption. Consider adding a label control if a caption is required.
  • The tooltip property is not supported for this control.
  • The Z order of a Web Control is ignored when running a specification in DriveWorks Administrator or User. The Web control will always appear in front of any other control placed on top of it. However when running a specification in a browser (using DriveWorks Live) the Z order is honoured.



  • Enabled

    Controls whether the control is enabled (if the result is TRUE) or disabled (if the result is anything other than TRUE, e.g. FALSE).

  • Error Result

    Determines whether the value of the control is in error. The result of this rule is a string containing the error message if the value is in error, otherwise a blank string or the number zero.

  • Tab Index

    Configures the position of the control in the form tab order.


    Specifies the URL to navigate to, or the HTML string to render in the control. This property will automatically detect whether the specified value is a URL or HTML string. URL strings must include the protocol, e.g. http

  • Visible

    Determines whether the control is visible (TRUE) or hidden (FALSE).


  • (Metadata)

    Optional text which can be used to provide information belonging to or about a control. For example, a list of CSS classes which can be parsed and applied to the control using the Integration Theme in DriveWorks Live. This doesn't affect the control's behavior.

  • (Name)

    The name of the control

  • (Tag)

    Optional text which can be used to describe the control, but which doesn't affect the control's behavior.

  • Tooltip Duration

    Controls the duration, in seconds, for which the tooltip will remain visible. Values of 0 and below indicate an infinite duration.

  • Tooltip Text

    Specifies the text to display in a tooltip when hovering over the control.


  • Height

    Controls the height of the control.

  • Left

    Controls the left position of the control.

  • Top

    Controls the top position of the control.

  • Width

    Controls the width of the control.
