waiting while webbrowser busy ?

hi,

another question....

I have a prog that submit a form then once submitted it load a welcome page, at this way I want to go back.

I use this :

[submitting form.....]
 Do
  DoEvents
 Loop Until Not WebBrowser1.Busy
WebBrowser1.GoBack

it give me an error :

method error, goback failed....

I think the function don't wait enough until the page is fully loaded...

is there any sure way to wait until the page be fully loaded ?

Regards,

Oliver

You should use the Document_Complete event

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DocumentComplete(ByVal pDisp As Object, URL As Variant)
  If URL = "Your Target URL" Then WebBrowser1.GoBack
End Sub

You don't need to use a loop or anything this way.

Use this in your code

 
Public Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" Alias "Sleep" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

TimCottee's solution should work.  but go ahead and try:

Do While WebBrowser.ReadyState <> READYSTATE_COMPLETE
   DoEvents
Loop

and just put an On Error Resume Next statement in the sub calling the GoBack method...the error being thrown may not even affect the operation.

How many MilliSeconds did you wait for.

Sleep just waits for the specified number of milliseconds before returning.

sleep stop processing and that's not what I want

any way azrasound function give me an error with doc.form...

I used my previous version

Do
 DoEvents
Loop Until Not WebBrowser1.Busy

seems to be good enough.... I puted a timer, that seems to be the best.... but of course bug sometime :(

thx anyway...

Try this :

----------------------------------------------------
Dim bBackEnabled as Boolean

'for loading a page
Sub LoadPage(ByVal sURL As String)
   WebBrowser1.Navigate sURL

   Do
      'putting additional DoEvents ... don't bother
      'WebBrowser control too frequently
      DoEvents
      DoEvents
      DoEvents
   Loop Until Not WebBrowser1.Busy

End Sub

'for going back
Sub GoBack()
   Do
      DoEvents
      DoEvents
      DoEvents
   Loop Until Not bBackEnabled
   WebBrowser1.GoBack
End Sub

'for keeping track of the back button state
Private Sub WebBrowser1_CommandStateChange _
(ByVal Command As Long, ByVal bEnable As Boolean)

   If (Command = 2) Then 'back button
      bBackEnabled = bEnable
   End If

End Sub

----------------------------------------------------
Let me know if this solved your problem.
