After searching for all of 20 seconds on MSDN, I found that it is
called WebBrowser.

To use it, you simply drag it onto your form from the toolbox.

Hmm, sorry, but I cannnot find it. Not on the toolbox. The couple of
references in MSDN found seem to refer to VB 6.0, for example
*************************
In Visual Basic 6.0, the OLE Container control was used to add insertable
OLE objects to your forms. There is no OLE Container control in Visual Basic
..NET. If you need the functionality of the OLE Container control, in some
cases you can substitute the Visual Basic 6.0 WebBrowser ActiveX control and
use it as an OLE Container.

Forms

********************
There is no WebBrowser in the toolbox - I think even in VB6 I had to add a
reference before I could insert it. But in .Net I cannot find an reference
with the same or similar name. The above text also makes me wonder if I
have to somehow include a VB6 project to be able to see a WebBrowser.

Thanx,

What version of VS are you using? The WebBrowser is included in Visual

If you are using VS2005 and the WebBrowser control is not on the
toolbox, right click the toolbox and select Choose Items. Then click
the .Net Components tab and scroll down to WebBrowser and select it.

If you are using VS2003, right click the toolbox and select Add/Remove
items. Then click the COM components tab and select the Microsoft Web
Browser ActiveX control as you do now with VB6.

Anil,

Don't forget as Chriss wrote to set it in your toolbox and drag it from
there on your form.
Otherwise the RESX settings will most probably go wrong.

Hi Cor or anyone else who may be able to answer. I posted the following as
a separate thread (Subject: How to use WebBrowser Control in .Net 2003?) but
got no reply. Can anyone help?
***********************
I once (long time ago in VB 6) used the WebBrowser Control. I looked it up
on MSDN and it showed how to add it into the Toolbox. So that worked fine.
However, I cannot do much with it other than make it browse to a page. What
I want to do is to get the HTML sourse inside a page.

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...entstream.aspx
shows a property as follows:
Dim instance As WebBrowser
Dim value As Stream

value = instance.DocumentStream

instance.DocumentStream = value

But I cannot seem to use it. Do I need to add a reference? If so, what
reference?

Also, in VB6, I seem to have done it through a control of type Inet. What
type of control is that? And what is the equivalent in .Net 2003?

Anil,

The program I had which did everything I have upgraded to the webbrowser.
That does the doc now in another way.

Here some links.
webbrowser
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=311303

some faqs
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;311284

mshtml
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...ng/hosting.asp

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de.../reference.asp

About the webbrowser is in these newsgroup probably beside me, the most
written by Charles Law.

Especially the part of casting which I cannot find now, but which you need
for good use.

He has helped me with this the first time I used that one.

http://groups.google.com/group/micro...rch+this+group

I hope that this brings you on the route,

Cor


I hope this helps a little bit?
