browser control refresh (re navigate)

I have a VB.Net form with a Microsoft Web Browser control in it. I navigate
to an XML file on my computer, then I change the XML document , then I
navigate to the XML file again. The browser control shows the OLD XML
document.

How do I refresh the control to show the new document?

Is there a way to clear the control's web cache?

THANK YOU!

I got it to work, but I don't know WHY it works.

browser.ExecWB( SHDocVw.OLECMDI D.OLECMDID_REFR ESH, _
SHDocVw.OLECMDE XECOPT.OLECMDEX ECOPT_DODEFAULT )

What am I doing? What does ExecWB stand for and what is it doing?

Hello: I'm using VB6 in VS enterprise. I'd like to place an HTML form inside a VB container, have a user fill out the form information, click a submit button, and then have the program capture the field values and write them to an ASCII file on the hard drive. Can anyone confirm that this is even possible? I have dredged up one article "Accessing the Internet Explorer Document Object Model from Visual Basic 5.0" (Asmi, 1998) that covers...

I have an application written in c# using the Web Browser Control. I also created a setup package to distribute this application on various machines all running windows xp or 2000. When i distribute the app, i am asked to install the .net framework, once installed the app runs. When i try to navigate to a web site using the Navigate fuction on the control, nothing happens. If i install .net studio on the machine, everything works fine.

I am using Microsoft’s Web Browser Control embedded on an Access Form to browse a specific site. I have a good reason for doing so; the pages on this site run code which aborts their display unless their window is the top window; they also treat all child windows as not-logged in windows. So I have not accomplished what I want with HTA’s or IFrames or Pop-Up Windows. But the Access Form/MS Web Browser combination gives me a top window with...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

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,...
