READYSTATE on WebBrowser Control

Hi all,

I'm navigating a Webbrowser control and I'm checking for the READYSTATE using:

Do While WebBrowser1.ReadyState < 4
    DoEvents
Loop

The problem is that it's been running at 3 for over a half hour now.

I ran this in work on a Win 98 machine with a proxy server Internet connection and had no problems.

Now I'm at home using Win XP Professional through a cable modem Internet connection.

I removed all firewalls and I have no problems surfing the net.

Any ideas?

Thanks

RichW

If you need to wait until page is downloaded, don't use that code. It wastes resources.
In documentcomplete event of webbrowser use code like this:
if (pdisp is webbrowser1.object) then
   ' do your stuff here
end if

Richie, the DocumentComplete event does fire off, but the READYSTATE still stays at 3.  I have already tried it.

I'm trying to capture the HTML of the page with
WebBrowser1.Document.body.innerhtml into a String variable.

Thanks anyway.

Strange. DocumentComplete fires for every frame that page could has, due to that i added a condition in my previous post.
By the way, if you need ALL contents of page use:
WebBrowser1.Document.documentelement.innerhtml
into a String variable

I have been working with documentcomplete event all the time with no problem. I did never check for READYSTATE.

If you just want the HTML to capture, why don't you use the Inetcontrol ? Way faster! And: an event when the document state changes (12 steps, AFAIK).

If you want this I can provide you with an complete example.
You can also use this method when you have to send parameters to the http server (POST and GET).
