  • Initialize Chrome at the start of your application with
var mainArgs = CefMainArgs(args);
var app = new DemoApp();
var settings = new CefSettings();
CefRuntime.ExecuteProcess(mainArgs, app, IntPtr.Zero);
CefRuntime.Initialze(mainArgs, settings, app, IntPtr.Zero);
  • Create a new CefWebBrowser and add it to your UI
var browser = new CefWebBrowser();
