Waiting for a page to load before continuing

I've got an internet explorer opened in one of my forms.  What is the correct way to code, so that it waits until the entire page is completely loaded before continuing on??

Hey Marc333    please take a look at this post I did a while back regarding ie and waiting for page complete.  
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Dot_Net/VB_DOT_NET/Q_21777756.html     

The article address a person wanting to print the page but has to wait for it to load first.  You should be able to do the same thing here.   This uses the Internet Explorer Object.  I am not sure if that is the same as the new webbrowser object in 2005.   What version are you running?

jjardine,
I'm using an older version, 2002.  I see where it is mentioned to use an addhandler.  I'm still new to .Net, but I'm guessing it looks something like:
AddHandler Explorer.DownloadBegin, AddressOf nameofevent

Is this how you handled it?  What did you use for the Addressof?

sorry, I meant documentcomplete instead of downloadbegin

yes it would be just like you said.   Create a method to call and use AddHandler just like you stated..  That should work.

jjardine,
I've got one problems though.  It looks like I've got it working fairly well, except once it loads the document, it looks like the handler is firing twice.  Could you take a look and tell me if I'm missing something?

Private Sub Searchbtn_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Searchbtn.Click
        Explorer.Navigate("http://realcomponline.com/asp/search.asp?")
        AddHandler Explorer.DocumentComplete, AddressOf searchload
       
    End Sub

    Public Sub searchload(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AxSHDocVw.DWebBrowserEvents2_DocumentCompleteEvent)
        If conn.State <> ConnectionState.Open Then conn.Open()

        Dim dr As DataRow
        Dim str As String = "Select * From MISC where ((ID) = 1);"
        Dim Miscda As New OleDbDataAdapter(str, conn)
        Dim miscds As New DataSet()
        Miscda.Fill(miscds, "Misc")


        Dim vlu As Integer

        SK("+{TAB}", 1)
        SK("{TAB}", 1)
        SendKeys.Send(" ")
        SendKeys.Send("{TAB}")
        SendKeys.Send("05071")

        SendKeys.Send("25")
        SendKeys.Send("{TAB}")
        SendKeys.Send("150")
        SendKeys.Send("{TAB}")

        'SendKeys.Send("~")

    End Sub

jjardine,
I opened your example in notepad and saw how you were doing the event handler.  Only problem is that I can't use this type of method because I have several events on this form that navigate through several different pages.  And I think this would affect every one of the other events as well (correct me if I missed something)..  Though the addhandler is avoiding this issue.

jjardine,
I solved the issue and was able to use your solution by using a variable that I can set for each event.  Thanks for your help.
