Using Webbrowser Control in VB 5.0

I am writing an application in VB 5.0 that will navigate a large web site using the webbrowser control.  After I make a call to the navigate method I would like to know when the web page is done loading.  I can catch the code in the DocumentComplete event, however I would like the control in my code to be back where I called the navigate in the first place.  Is there a way that I can signal an object and waitforsingleobject after the call to navigate.  I called Microsoft and they suggested that I put a Do Loop with a DoEvents inside after my call to navigate and then check a flag, which would get set in the document complete event function.  I tried this and it worked but it maxes out the cpu.  Any suggestions?

Don't call DoEvents() in every instance of the loop.  Try every 10 instances as such:

nLoopCount = 0
Do Until m_bLoadDone
  If nLoopCount > 9 Then
    DoEvents
    nLoopCount = 0
  End If
  nLoopCount = nLoopCount + 1
Loop
0

I tried your suggestion and still have the same results.  It seems that even though you are in the loop doing nothing the cpu places the same priority on doing the nothing task as performing its other task(navigating to the web site) hence slowing the system down.  Any other suggestions?

The only other thin I can think of is:
Do Until WebBrowser1.ReadyState = READYSTATE_COMPLETE
  DoEvents
Loop

This is a bit cleaner than setting a flag in the DocumentComplete event (and you don't have to test to set the flag each time).

Give this a try and see what happens.
