Capturing refresh event on IE

Am trying to capture the Refresh event of a html page.
I am using an activeX component that implement few inerfaces and sink dwebbrowserevents as well but didn't find a way I could capture the 'refresh' event (the browser won't send a 'BeforeNavigate' nor 'Document/DownloadComplete').
The best I could come to (so far) is capturing the onbeforeunload (of the IHTMLWindow2 obj) of the document and distinguish between a case where the browser had a 'BeforeNavigate' event just  before the onbeforeunload event initiated. Still it's kinda screwy way...
Looking 4 help!

strange that you are not seeing a BeforeNavigateEvent - I have not trouble seeing that event at all

How have you set up the receiving of events? code sample could be useful here

Hi Shaun,
Strange your browser fires a 'BeforeNavigate' event because mine doesn't.
Let me add more details:
I'm using IE5 on OS Windows 2000.

If it helps, here's the code:

******* CWBMyHost.h **********
class CWBMyHost:
public.......
....
....
public IDispEventImpl<0, CWBMyHost, &__uuidof(SHDocVw::DWebBrowserEvents2), &LIBID_SHDocVw, 1, 0>,
public...

.
.
.
.
BEGIN_SINK_MAP(CWBMyHost)
   SINK_ENTRY_EX(0, (__uuidof(SHDocVw::DWebBrowserEvents2)), DISPID_DOCUMENTCOMPLETE, NavigateComplete)
   SINK_ENTRY_EX(0, (__uuidof(SHDocVw::DWebBrowserEvents2)), DISPID_BEFORENAVIGATE2, BeforeNavigate)
END_SINK_MAP()
.
.
.
.
STDMETHOD(NavigateComplete)(IDispatch* pDisp, VARIANT* URL);
STDMETHOD(BeforeNavigate)(IDispatch *pDisp,
               VARIANT *URL,
               VARIANT *Flags,
               VARIANT *TargetFrameName,
               VARIANT *PostData,
               VARIANT *Headers,
               VARIANT_BOOL *Cancel);
.
.
.
.
};

******* CWBMyHost.cpp **********

.
.
.
STDMETHODIMP CWBMyHost::NavigateComplete(IDispatch* pDisp, VARIANT* URL)
{
...
}

STDMETHODIMP CWBMyHost::BeforeNavigate(IDispatch *pDisp,
    VARIANT *URL,
    VARIANT *Flags,
    VARIANT *TargetFrameName,
    VARIANT *PostData,
    VARIANT *Headers,
    VARIANT_BOOL *Cancel
)
{
...
}

.
.
.

But I don't think the code is problematic (in this manner) because I do get these events when I navigate (through links or through the back/forward buttons)

oops you right - my refresh button - was an actual wrapped Navigate() with the last URL (strange what you do late at night and can't remeber why) - you do get a downloadbegin/complete events which you can use - eg if you get a download complete without a BeforeNavigate then it must be a refresh

Sometimes the answer is right under your nose but you need someone (usually from the outside) to show it to you.
This is just what you did. Thanks
p.s.
I know it looks obvious but still - thanks a lot
