C# and WebView2

New Contributor

Hi everyone,

has anybody tried this example



I do not see control in Toolbox and also get "WebView2 could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)" error.


I'm using:

  • Visual Studio Community 2019, v.16.7.3
  • .NET Framework 4.7.2
  • C# + WinForms
  • Microsoft.Web.WebView2, v.0.9.579
  • Microsoft Edge, v.87.0.635.0 canary

I also found this:

"This package is necessary for Win 32 C/C++ applications."

in NuGet description. Does it work with C#?

Thank you.

I think, I found solution: update to a pre-release version.

Write In Package Manager Console

PM> Update-Package Microsoft.Web.WebView2 -Version 0.9.579-prerelease

and restart Visual Studio.
