The second parameter passed to CreateBrowserControlL(), aRect is interpreted differently in these two platform releases:

  • In S60 3rd Edition devices aRect is related to view.
  • In S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 1 devices aRect is related to the container owning the browser control.


The value of aRect should be set as follows:

  TRect brCtlRect(Position(), Size());   // in 3rd Ed devices
TRect brCtlRect(TPoint(0, 0), Size()); // in 3rd Ed, FP1 devices
CBrCtlInterface* iBrCtlInterface = CreateBrowserControlL( this, brCtlRect, aBrCtlCapabilities );
