TWebBrowser navigate

Hi,

I am using TWebBrowser to access certain URL and then grab the content.

Do you know if we can detect the "end of transfer" of the TWebBrowser action?

Let say I am accessing http://www.example.com/ , my code is like this:

     WebBrowser1.Navigate('http://www.example.com');

But, how do I capture event if the Navigate process SUCCESS or FAIL ???

Thanks.

the last OnTitleChange event
gives the Error if the page can't be found
like 'Network Error'

I personally would use ReadyState.
DocumentCompltee is best of events (fired when ReadyState is changed to 4, which means document is ready for manipulations)

Other events are:
NavigateComplete, NavigateComplete2, DownloadComplete and LoadingComplete events
(only DownloadComplete fires on error)

NavigeteComple fires sooner (I think its on ReadyState=2) and you cant access read document in that phase. But you should stop any 'Loading' animation and so on this.

Are you working with the DOM, or just with the page content as raw text? The reason I ask is that a hosted browser may be overkill if your looking to just page scrape information. (Eg use of Indy components, etc, for perfoming an http get).
