This works as expected on my windows 7, but event is not generated on linux (ubuntu 11.04 and 12.04) and osX (mountain lion).

My problem however is triggering event from javascript ( and again this works only on windows platform.

This is reponse I got from "doublemax" user from wxwidgets forum:

Looking into the sources, i'd say it's not supported under OSX. Under GTK it should probably work.

Unfortunately it does not. You can test it here:

Thanks for reporting, I can confirm both of the issues in this ticket although they may actually be separate problems.

(In [74804]) Handle WebKitWebView create-web-view.

In some cases a new window is signalled using create-web-view rather than new-window-policy-decision-requested and so we need to handle it to emit the correct new window events.

Fixes #15447.
