Note: that is historical data, I am not selling HTMLayout anymore – use Sciter as it is a superset and next major version of HTMLayout

HTMLayout used its own lightweight HTML rendering engine that had:

  • Fast HTML rendering with very short readiness times.
  • HTML and CSS enhanced for screen layout tasks. %% units and expandable backgrounds allow to use more flexible and “screen oriented” layout schemas.
  • Custom behaviors API allow you to define how HTML elements will be drawn, react on keyboard and mouse events.
  • Low level interaction with the host application. No intermediate component technologies involved. Just pure API calls, like in any other native Windows common controls. HtmLayout uses WM_NOTIFY mechanism for interacting with the host window.
  • Small distribution size: HtmLayout.dll is about 600KB uncompressed.
  • No dependencies from installed browsers on client PC.
