make webbrowser control invisible at runtime?

lee88 asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-26
I have a VB6 project that uses a webbrowser control, WB. I need the WB control to be invisible at runtime. The app works fine as long as the webbrowser control's Visible property is set to true. Am I correct that the WB control does not work when its Visible property set to false?

Other than trying to set the WB contorl's Visible=False (which stops the control from working), I have also tried unsuccessfully to change the WB control's Z-Order, to hide it behind a Shape or Label control.

I just need help getting the WB control to be invisible at runtime.
