  • I tried to use SecureInput sample of extension for MSEdge that can be found here
    The demo referenced from this documentation on native messaging that can be found here
    This line in background page fails
    port = browser.runtime.connectNative(“NativeMessagingHostInProcessService”);
    It is apparently not defined in browser.runtime.
    Tried it on Microsoft Edge 38.14393.0.0
    My windows 10 os is updated with the latest latest updates. So i am not sure why i missing this function…

  • Same as above but with OS Build 15025.1000 and Microsoft Edge 40.15025.1000.0.
    connectNative undefined exception in the SecureInput example code.
    This page:
    shows connectNative as supported:
    runtime.connectNative Supported — Microsoft Edge (38) / Windows 10 (15002)

  • Thanks for filing this issue. I tested the SecureInput example on 15063 and it’s working as expected, so I’m going to resolve this issue for the time being. If you’re still running into issues on more recent builds of Windows, please feel free to re-open this and let me know. Thanks again!
