What's the best way to achieve this: "Determine the length of time that it takes for a web page to load completely; using C# and .NET framework?" Is it possible to determine how long DNS resolution took, in the process?

U can use the TimeSpan function to achieve this functionality. U can also make use of Trace statements in the form_load function.

I think I did not present this question correctly.  I want to know how to download a complete web page (with all the pictures, and any other content) in a desktop C# application. There should be a way to track'start of page download' and 'end of page download'. Thanks!

If you are using MSHTML AxBrowser to download the page, it has document_complete event which you can use to see how much time it took to complete the HTML document download with all the Pics etc
