Exit While Does't work

Can anyone see why the below won't work?

I get a compile error on "Exit While" saying "Expected: Do or For or Sub or Function or Property"
While WebBrowser2.ReadyState <> READYSTATE_COMPLETE
                        DoEvents
                        WebCount = WebCount + 1
                        
                        If Len(WebCount) > 9 Then
                            Exit While
                        End If
                    Wend

There is no Exit While.  Use Do...Loop instead.
Do While WebBrowser2.ReadyState <> READYSTATE_COMPLETE
                        DoEvents
                        WebCount = WebCount + 1
                        
                        If Len(WebCount) > 9 Then
                            Exit Do
                        End If
Loop

A beeter way to code it would be as shown below.
While WebBrowser2.ReadyState <> READYSTATE_COMPLETE _
      and len(Webcount) > 9 
  DoEvents 
  WebCount = WebCount + 1 
Wend

Oops that should read as follows:
While WebBrowser2.ReadyState <> READYSTATE_COMPLETE _ 
      and len(Webcount) < 9  
  DoEvents  
  WebCount = WebCount + 1  
Wend

That final solution I gave avoids "spaghetti" coding which is totally "frowned upon" by most programmers (and FOBIDDEN in educational institutions). You should never use the "Exit" statement if you want to maintain good programming standards.
