Hi,

I'm using Visual Studio 2005.
Language: VB
I have a form with an embedded webbrowser control.
"Microsoft Internet Controls" V 1.1 COM object
SHDocVw.dll

it's working fine, no problems.
I'd like to scale the view, so it doesnt take up soo much space on the form.
Reducing font is not a desired solution.
I need to shrink to about 1/4 of the original size.

I used the .Scale method available in the control, but all it does is scale the window, not the content.

     WbrBrowser2.Scale(0.5, 0.5)
     WbrBrowser2.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(200, 100)
     WbrBrowser2.Navigate("http://www.mywebsite.com/etc")

I need to scale the content. Anyone got an idea?

By the way, in case you are wondering why I am using a COM component. It allows me to easily read the DOM and manipulate elements in it, e.g. fill in textboxes with values and clicking submit-buttons.


Thanks
