Is there a way of pulling the source code out of a webbrowser control?

I know you can use the inet control, however its a dynamic application, which uses previous screens to compile the final resulting page, once this page is reached, I want to be able to read the final page, and use it.

Any ideas?

Do you mean the HTML code of the current page in the control?

Hi tonelm54,

rettiseert's code is what you are looking for.  If you want to save it to disk, here is a good function for doing so.

Sub SaveWebBrowser(WB As WebBrowser, ByVal FileName As String, _
    Optional SaveAsPlainText As Boolean)
    Dim Text As String, fnum As Integer

    If SaveAsPlainText Then
        Text = BW.Document.Body.innerHTML
        Text = BW.Document.documentElement.OuterHTML
    End If

    ' save to file
    fnum = FreeFile
    Open FileName For Output As #fnum
    Print #fnum, Text;
    Close #fnum
End Sub
