Microsoft Web Browser COM control in VB .Net

Has anyone had success with using this Com control?

When I add it into my tool box and drop it into my form
it says in the
properties that the Document and LocationURL are read
only. (they are grayed out)

I am successful to get Media Play Com to work alright in
the form but can
not get Web Browser to work.

Maybe you can tell me there is another way to get HTML
browsing capability
inside a form?

I found a link on Google that seemed to be referencing
this issue but could
not get their code to compile

It works! I successfully did the AxWebBrowser1.N avigate
("c:\myplace\my file.htm") Thanks!!

Where can I find a list of all the methods for
AxWebBrowser or is that a stupid question?

Hi Bob

Believe me, we are not trying to keep it from you.

You can use the Navigate method to load a file as well, e.g.
AxWebBrowser1. Navigate("c:\my place\myfile.ht m")

What happens when you use the above syntax?

I looked at the Navigate ( ) Method but it was not clear how or if that is what I need to direct the Web Browswer control to point to read an HTML file.

You guys are so smart...pleeeas e share with me how you
get the Microsoft Web Browser (shdocVw.dll) to read a
file with in a VB form. I am still looking at a white
space where the control is painted on my form.

Hi Cor,

I downloaded the code at the link you gave me. And tried
to upgrade it to VB .Net with some errors that would not
let it compile... like:

Type 'shell' is not defined.

'Object' is not a member of 'AxSHDocVw.AxWe bBrowser'.

For now Charles' suggestion for using the command:
AxWebBrowser1.N avigate("c:\myp lace\myfile.htm ")

has me going alright to load a HTML document...but it
would be nice to use some the functionality in the code
you pointed me to. Is is simple to make the upgrade
function properly? If not I will leave it alone until I
get to be a better programmer.

Hi Bob,

Here is as far as I know that axwebbrowser also in

Normaly Herfried supports this links and now I had to search for it.
Searching on the name Herfried in the dotnet groups does not help a lot.

I suppose the simple answer is that they are basically the same as the
WebBrowser control. The more helpful answer is that they can all be found in
MSDN, on-line or in the library if you have it.

You will notice some methods and attributes called CtlXXXX. These are
generated when the underlying control (in this case the WebBrowser control)
has members with the same name as members of the .NET Control class. In this
case, the .NET members keep their name, and the underlying control members
are prefixed with ctl.

I don't wish to put you off, and depending on what your plans are this may
not be significant, but using the WebBrowser control for anything even
remotely clever is fraught with problems. I have spent the last nine months,
on and off, developing a browser control for .NET, with the WebBrowser
control at the heart. It ain't straight forward. Apart from the bugs in the
interop and the browser control itself, you will need to spend a lot of time
delving into the MSDN for examples and clues, and these newsgroups will
become your best friends.

But hey ...

Good luck.
