I am using vb.net 2005 and the web browser tool in my vb app and have a question regarding the webbrowser1.ShowSaveAsDialog(). I realize that for security reasons, I can no longer hide this dialog and automatically save the current page my browswer is pointing to on my users hard drive. What I would at least like to do is pre-set the file name and directory where the html page from the built-in browser should be saved. I currently save the file using webBrowser1.Document.Body.OuterHtml but that does NOT save the pictures and graphics which I definitely need for printing purposes.
1) is this possible?
2) is there a way to fire the Save button on the dialog from within my code?
3) is there a way to pull in the graphics and pictures?
3) is it possible to do this in the background?
