Hooking Webbrowser events?

Jim
I'd like to hook events (like when a user clicks or right-clicks on a link
in a web page) to launch a download manager or to open a new window for the
link, but I am finding it difficult to find sources on how this can be done
using VB.Net.

Have you seen any examples such as this?

I am using VB.Net 2005 Professional, but any .Net examples are welcomed.

Thanks!

Hello Jim ,
you can do this by implementing a messagefilter interface in your app

http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=5635

this example is made with a webbrowser control in VB.Net 2003 however the
same technique can be applied on anny other interface

There is a good example called
"How To Handle Document Events in a Visual Basic .NET Application"
at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=311284.

I have successfully used this in VB.Net apps.

Which events you get depends on the HTML Document / interface you use.
