    Problem using SHARE_SESSION with multiple embedded IE instances

    IE 7 (or 8) **embedded using MFC control**
    Lightstreamer connection using SHARE_SESSION

    Expected result:
    Opening two instances of a page (from the same host application process) should allow the Lightstreamer connection to be shared between the two windows.

    Actual result:
    Opening one instance of the page correctly connects to Lightstreamer
    Attempting to open a second instance of the page produces
    - a blank popup window containing the following
    javascript:eval("var callFun = function(LS_Ulx,LS_fMx){if({if(window==top&&!(window.LS_sOi&&window.LS_sOi.LS_NPS)){;window.close();}}}; callFun('LS__ft_com_613_FTLightstreamerEngine', 'LS__ft_com_613_FTLightstreamerEngine__TRASH');; ")
    - a dialog box prompting to close the window.
    - after dismissing the dialog box, another dialog box pop up saying "ER bind Unable to find the Engine..."

    Note that the same implementation works as expected if run from standalone IE using
    two windows / tabs from the same IE process.

    Can you shed any light on this matter? Is Lightstreamer able to successfully share sessions when using multiple instances of an embeddeded IE?

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your detailed explanation.

    You probably discovered that it is not possible to share sessions when using multiple instances of an embeddeded IE. We have never tested this scenario. I guess the two intances share the same cookies but are isolated one from each other for what concerns direct communication.

    In this scenario, you should create independent engines, with the NEW_SESSION flag.

    Thanks for your reply Alessandro, it's unfortunate this doesn't work with Lightstreamer as we have a requirement not to blow the HTTP two-connection limit in IE7 whilst using multiple instances of the browser and were hoping that the way your application allowed shared connections would alleviate this!

    If you are interested, the problem can be replicated by creating a Visual Basic application in about two minutes...

    Create a new Windows Forms Application
    Add two WebBrowser controls to the form
    Add a TextBox and a Button (for entering the url)
    Add the code on the button click:

    Run the application and navigate to a Lightstreamer page.

    I wonder now if there are any properties that can be set on the WebBrowser control to handle this scenario better... any MFC gurus out there?

    I don't know if it's possible as I've never used MFC, but if you're able to pass the window reference of one browser control to the javascript code of the other one then you could call on the second browser the seekEngine method and solve the problem.
