Saving HTML page as file with WebBrowser

I could hardly find any documentation about the WebBrowser control.
How can I save an HTML page as a local file using the WebBrowser control ?
I can't do it with the Inet control, or using winsock since the page I'd like to save requires a cookie, received when accessing another HTML page. Therefore I'd like to navigate to the first page, get the cookie, and then navigate to the second page, and save it from the webbrowser contorl.
Other suggestions of doing it would be also gladly accepted.

To save the webpage, you can do this:

   webbrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_SAVEAS,OLECMDEXECOPT_PROMPTUSER


The WebBrowser Help file is on the Visual Basic CD, however it does not get installed when you install VB.

It is located on the CD at:

   \TOOLS\UNSUPPRT\WEBBRWSR

This doesn't help me. I'd like to save the page without the "Save Web Page" dialog box, without the user having to press enter or write the filename.

brwWebBrowser.ExecWB OLECMDID_SAVEAS, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER pops that dialog box as well.

Yes, the ExecWB pops up the dialogbox in both cases... In your original question you didn't mention anything about saving automatically...

On the Visual Basic CD there is a project in the \TOOLS\UNSUPPRT\HTTPEXPL directory... Load that project and see if that helps you...
