AppStudio iFrames - Would like to add (Twitch) streaming channel to my app... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all!

    Now I am aware of the general limitations around HTML in AppStudio; text only support. So I went ahead and downloaded the source, added the project to Visual Studio, found the HTML file located in the shared resources folder and added the following iframe HTML code:

    <iframe src="" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" height="378" width="620"></iframe><a href="" style="padding:2px 0px 4px; display:block; width:345px; font-weight:normal; font-size:10px;text-decoration:underline;">Watch live video from TheAttack on</a>

    As well as the iframe embed for the chat channel:

    <iframe src="" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" height="500" width="350"></iframe>

    When I build/compile/run the app, nothing on my HTML page shows, at all. I really would appreciate any insight into embedding videos, streams or general iFrames (in VS using the source of my app), as it would be crucial for what I am trying to achieve.

    Any input/feed would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,

    We only support questions with App Studio. Since this is an extension of App Studio to Visual Studio, we shall move this question to Visual Studio team. They should be able to help you.

  • Hi 404_User_Not_Found,

    Actually this forum is to discuss:

    Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    To make this issue clearly, would you mind letting us know more information about this issue? Which kind of app are you developing/running in VS IDE now? Is it the web app or windows phone app or others?

    Best Regards,

  • Hello, I'd ask Twitch.

    You could also ask in Microsoft's ASP.Net forums:

    As Microsoft's ASP.Net forums are on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

  • I think you can use the Web-view thing to make a frame .
