HTML Widget in Uniface application shows empty


Uniface version 9 and version 10 makes use of the Chromium Embedded Framework CEF v81.0.4044.138 for its HTML Widgets.

Running a Uniface Application that contains the usage of the Uniface HTML Widget (like the Uniface 10 Development environment) can show up empty and the widget not responding.


When this happens the following solution can be performed to circumvent this issue:

Open notepad.exe on a windows system and copy the following text in to file called: UA-CEF-fix.reg (make sure that the file extension is ,reg)

UA-CEF-fix.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Uniface\Uniface Anywhere\Loader\Processes]
"cefrender.exe"=hex(b):a0,01,04,00,06,18,00,00

Import this registry file in the Uniface Anywhere HOST by double click on the file when logon as 'Administrator'.

No need for the restart of the Uniface Anywhere Publishing Service to have it effected.

Current running UA sessions will not get this fix until they have logged out and logged in again.
