Windows.Forms.W ebBrowser Multi-Threaded

I need to use a Windows.Forms.W ebBrowser in a separate thread. (I'm
not using the GUI, I just want to navigate to a page and get the
..Document.Body .InnerText property of the WebBrowser - maybe there is
another way to do this?).

To make the instance, I set the thread to run in STA mode.

However, the DocumentComplet ed event never gets called. It works fine
if I don't using threading, but in multi-threading, the event for
DocumentComplet ed never happens.


private void button2_Click(o bject sender, EventArgs e)
Thread t = new Thread(new ThreadStart(DoI t));
t.SetApartmentS tate(ApartmentS tate.STA);

private void DoIt()
WebBrowser wb = new WebBrowser();
wb.DocumentComp leted += new
WebBrowserDocum entCompletedEve ntHandler(wb_Do cumentCompleted );
wb.Navigate("ht tp://www.google.com" );

private void wb_DocumentComp leted(object sender, EventArgs e)
string text = ((WebBrowser)se nder).Document. Body.InnerText;
this.strTest = text;

I have an application that uses the Ax web browser object. When I call the IHTMLElement.click() method on an input button (<input type="submit"> or <input type="button">), the click fires appropriately, if I'm running it from a windows forms based application. However, when I run the EXACT same code under a windows service, either as a logged in user or as the local system account, the click fails to process. Clicking on other elements...

Hi. I have an application that should download files from internet. The problem is the protocol is HTTPS. So I have a System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser which allows the user to log in to the HTTPS webpage with username and password. The login is working since I can look at the files (XML-files) by navigating to them(see the XML in them), which should be possible if the user is not logged in. So figure the WebBrowser object now have a...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
