Private Sub Form_Load()
    WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://www.google.com")
   

End Sub


I had used the WebBrowser in VB6 to script the HTML code. Refer to the code below and the screen

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DownloadComplete()

    'you must add the "Microsoft HTML Object Library"!!!!!!!!!

    Dim HTMLdoc As New MSHTML.HTMLDocument

       

    On Error Resume Next

        Set HTMLdoc = WebBrowser1.Document
        Label1.Caption = HTMLdoc.documentElement.innerHTML
           
End Sub
