    Documentation? for WebBrowser controll


    Hi I am trying to build a little app useing a the web browser controll. However
    I am haveing a devil of a time finding some official documentaion for it.
    I checked the Visual Studio library cd (came with VB6), but nill. I couldn't
    even find in the object browser. In general how should I go about finding
    some documenation for something any 'Active X' controll, or say an 'object'
    like an instance of Intenet Explorer, or MSoft Excell?
    Well thanks for any help you can give. It just seems like there should
    be a doc of web page that says 'Here dummy! Here are all the methodes and
    property's exposed by this controll, and here is what they do'

    Thanks again!

    Re: Documentation? for WebBrowser controll


    I found it going looking in MSDN under WebBrowser Control Reference. All
    methods, properites, and events are documented there. However, there is
    another problem. The document property of the Webbrowser control is another
    object, an HTMLDocument object. It is a very powerful object that gives
    you complete control over the HTML page, however, I don't remember how I
    found the documentation for that object.

    Anyone help?

    Good luck,

    Alan, Harry -

    I looked under the MSDN Web Workshop section. In the Web Workshop Home,
    there is a section called "Reusing Browser Technology", which gives an
    overview of using bits of Internet Explorer. More usefully, there is a link
    called "Reusing the Webbrowser Control", and following this, there is a link
    for "Reference for Visual Basic Developers". In the Object reference, look
    for the "Document" property, which has a link to IHTMLDocument2.

    This should cover everything (I hope <g>).

    Re: Documentation? for WebBrowser controll



    Thanks for the information. I think I'm useing an old version of MSDN. It
    doesn't have a reference to the WebBrowser Control. I did find the information
    under 'WebBrowser Control' however. I event found the information on the
    Document Object.

    Under the webBrowser controll reference, there was a link to the 'document'
    property. From there I clicked on a link to the Document Object reference.
    Gee Microsoft makes everything make sense. Why just have one list of all
    the Objects when one can madly point and click through obscurity of the Microsoft
    COM hierarchy. All laid out in HTML with cascading style sheets no less.
    One could then describe the documentation with less that 650 CDs.
    I just wish the Document Object had a readln methode. Oh well

    Thanks for you help!!
