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.

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

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).
