webbrowser control does not display

My application collects data and then displays it in a webbrowser control.

The data collection is collected within a loop, and the webbrowser's document is re-written on each iteration.

After all the data is collected (and the loop is ended), the browser's document is re-written for the last time.

My problem... the browser doesn't show anything until the very end.  Sometime it will display the first iteration's data, but it never updates on every iteration.

Do
  If Not dataDone = True Then
    getData()
    getHTML
     webbrowser1.document.write(HTML)
  End If
Loop

getHTML
webbrowser.document.write(HTML)

corrected pseudo-code...

Do
  If Not dataDone = True Then
    getData()
    getHTML
    webbrowser1.document.write(HTML)
  Else
    Exit Do
  End If
Loop

getHTML
webbrowser.document.write(HTML)

I believe that the problem is that you have a tight loop, and it doesn't allow the WebBrowser control the time to render each page correctly.

Thanks for the reply.  It doesn't really help, but it's hard to be critical since you're the only one who answered.
