I am creating a control that downloads a web page.  I use webbrowser control to do this job.  When the download of the page is completed, I would like to automatically save this page in a directory specified.  I tried to use following command: WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_SAVE, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER, "c:\temp"
This didn't work.  Only way I can get any kind of Save is using OLECMDID_SAVEAS.  Is this possbile using VB? Or do I need to look at VC++?

Alot of problems have came out with WebBrowser1.ExecWB method.
However, you code is okay, you just need to give the
WebBrowser Object the focus.

Not as easy as it sounds,
the setfocus will not also work.

Right now, your button that calls WebBrowser1.ExecWB has the focus.

Even after I gave focus to the webbrowser control( MS Article ID: Q176400 ) the method didn't save the page.  Now I am looking at automating OLECMDID_SAVEAS with dialog window.  Is there a better way?

With the dialog Window, all the use has to do is enter his filename and
bingo. File has been saved and at least he knows where it is.
