Hi all

I am using the web browser control in visual studio .net 2005 (J#). I need to select & copy certain text content in the document.

I am using the attached code, but it returns the html source of the document not the text.



String x;
x = webBrowser1.get_DocumentText();
textBox1.set_Text(x);

Open in new window

Hello ,

Try to use following way. I am giving you C# example and it will help you out.

In button click of form.

webBrowser1.Focus();
System.Windows.Form.SendKeys.SendWait("^c");
textbox1.Text = Clipboard.GetText();

To select all text

webBrowser1.Focus();
System.Windows.Form.SendKeys.SendWait("^a^c");
textbox1.Text = Clipboard.GetText();

Let me know if you still have any problem.
