IE Assembly reference equivalent to chrome.
Currently we have requirement to migrate from IE to Chrome,
In the existing code, we have many script components written in C# which uses assemblies specifically to IE like OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.Controls.WebControl. We are passing the entire "Div" for further processing to C# script as input type OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.Controls.WebControl.
The same assembly is not working in chrome if we pass the same "DIV" as input to C# script with input type OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.Controls.WebControl. In fact it was not allowing me to connect the data links for C# script as input. For chrome I changed the input type in C# script to OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.WebBase.Controls.WebControl and I was able to at least connect the data links which was accepted, but later on while processing the div and its children its giving an error "Unable to cast transparent proxy to type 'OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.WebBase.VirtualHtmlCollection'.
Is the assembly OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.Controls.WebControl in IE equivalent to OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.WebBase.Controls.WebControl in Chrome ?
TargetType property of DIV in Chrome is : OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.WebBase.Targets.VirtualHtmlElementTarget
TargetType property of DIV in IE is :OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.HtmlElement
I would create another script specific to Chrome and replace your IE scripts once you have it working.
In the script, I would check if it's of type OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.WebBase.VirtualHtmlCollection and work with the collection as needed. For OpenSpan.Adapters.Web.WebBase.Controls.WebControl types you should be able to do something similar to what Thomas described. This is the base type for most of the HTML controls in Chrome.
