In Visual Basic I can add a WebBrowser component to a form.
Can I do the same in VisualFortran? I would like to add a GoogleStaticMap to my form but don't think I can do it in VisualFortran.
If it is possible, is there an example of adding a WebBrowser?
The web browser component you refer to in Visual Basic is probably a COM component (more specifically - it is probably an ActiveX control of some sort). You can interact with COM components using Fortran. But this is not a trivial exercise.
If you just want to open a web browser, just use the usual command to start an executable, once you have a location for, for example,
iexplorer.exe, firefox.exe, or whatever your installed browser application is.
