Here is my code:
var
  URL: OleVariant;
begin
  ShowBlankPage(WB);
  URL := 'c:\blank.htm';
  WB.Navigate2(URL); <----An error occasionally occurs here!
  with WB do
  begin
    while (ReadyState <> READYSTATE_COMPLETE) do
      Forms.Application.ProcessMessages;
  end;
end;

The Error message is "The requested resource is in use".
I wonder how this happens and how to resolve this problem?

Sorry, can't reproduce this error (after commenting out ShowBlankPage(WB) call).

Just offhand - maybe try preventing a call to Navigate until you are certain previous navigation is finished, using global flag variable.

Like this:

var WBBusy: Boolean=FALSE; // global flag

// .....

var
 URL: OleVariant;
begin
 if WBBusy then Exit;
// Set flag to "busy"
 WBBusy:=TRUE;
 ShowBlankPage(WB);
 URL := 'c:\blank.htm';
 WB.Navigate2(URL);
 with WB do
 begin
   while (ReadyState <> READYSTATE_COMPLETE) do
     Forms.Application.ProcessMessages;
 end;
 // Set flag to "not busy"
 WBBusy:=FALSE;
end

Hi,
About a possible reason:
When the file is opened in Exclusive or DenyRead mode by another program (or the same program before that code) then a similar error page appears in my browser.

Regards, Geo

I've used ActiveX Server to get information from TwebBrowser.When ActiveX Server sends a message to my program and my program changes Url of TWebBrowser,an error occurs immediately.
