I'm looking for a web browser control that has something like an HTML Source property. So that I could assign "<HTML><Hello</HTML>" to that property, etc. MS Internet Controls don't have that. Thanks in advance

1. With MS Internet control you can point it to a file by using the navigate method with a path on your local HD.  Write the file out as a text file from VB first.  You can easily wrap this up in a function to make it look to rest of program almost as if assigning it.

2. Your HTML is invalid, try
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Hello Title</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
Hello
</BODY>

[use CR/LF sequences to separate lines if you want this is CHR$(13)+CHR$(10) -  they have no effect on layout


2. If you don't like IE, try the webster control

There's a full list of methods at

AFAIK this also can navigate to a local file on your HD.  I don't think it can do memory strings.



Probably the reason for lack of memory strings for content in #1 or #2 is the linking, frames, image tags etc. in which HTML requires a file/URL reference

Closing tag on HTML file got misplaced, should have read

<HTML>
     <HEAD>
     <TITLE>Hello Title</TITLE>
     </HEAD>
     <BODY>
     Hello
     </BODY>
</HTML>
