Displaying XML and HTML on a .NET Winform

P: n/a
Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone has a better way to display XML and HTML files on a
VB.NET Winform other than using the COM WebBrowser control.

Thanks,
Shawn

What's not "good" with the WebBrowser control?

Sorry i didn't want to imply that it's bad(although i'd rather not have to
use a COM component). I'm just looking for alternatives and was wondering
what others were using.

I guess i'm looking for something with a bit more control over the XML.

Hi Shawn,

It is a browser it has as much control over XML as Internet Explorer.

What you want it to do more?

Shawn, while I've never used it, a friend of mine has liked XMLEdit.net from
smartcontrols:
http://www.smartcomponents.plus.com/

It's not free, but it is only $19.99 US.

if you can load the XML onto a dataset then you can use a datagrid control to display the XML. that gives you more control
for the HTML you need some browser view it. maybe you can have an option in your app. to view the content as a webpage and spawn a new IE instance
