    Question text search

    i want to search a string in a webbrowser, called brwWebBrowser.
    however, when i use
    brwWebBrowser.ExecWB OLECMDID_FIND, OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT
    or
    brwWebBrowser.ExecWB OLECMDID_SHOWFIND, OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT
    it reacts that method ExecWB of object IWebBrowser2 failed (runtimeerror -2147221248(80040100)), and it shows a (win xp) search files and folders dialog... help?

    what do you mean? like searching google and entering a string too search it?

    it would be done like this:

    Code:
    BrwWebBrowser.Navigate2(TextBox.Text)
    you would probably need a command button for it too cause validation unless your doing it another way:

    if your using google do this:
    Code:
    BrwWebBrowser.Navigate2("http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q="+TextBox.Text+"&btnG=Google+Search")

    you don't even have to do that...explorer has "FIND"(ctrl + F) so its useless doing that.
    (if your using Microsoft Internet Controls OCX)
