dynamically add web browser to a form in Excel vba

I am trying to dynamically creat a form with a label, a CommandButton and a WebBrowser, bat can't get the syntax for the webBrowser right.

My code:
Sub MakeForm()
' Yahoo WebBrowser problem
'
' References:
' Visual Basic for Applications
' Microsoft Excel 14.0 Object Library
' OLE Automation
' Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications Extensibility 5.3
' Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library (FM20.dll)
' Microsoft Internet Controls

  Dim YahooChart As Object ' VBComponent
  Dim FormName As String
  Dim cb As MSForms.CommandButton
  Dim lb As MSForms.Label
  Dim wb As WebBrowser
  Dim TextLocation As Integer
  Dim x As Integer

  'Locks Excel spreadsheet and speeds up form processing
  Application.VBE.MainWindow.Visible = False
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
 
'   Create the UserForm
  Set YahooChart = ThisWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents.Add(vbext_ct_MSForm)
 
  'Set Properties for Form YahooChart
  With YahooChart
    .Properties("Caption") = "YahooChart"
    .Properties("Width") = 900
    .Properties("Height") = 700
  End With
  FormName = YahooChart.Name
'   Add a Label
  Set lb = YahooChart.Designer.Controls.Add("forms.Label.1")
  With lb
   .Left = 5
   .Width = 600
   .Caption = "URL"
  End With
 
'   Add a CommandButton
  Set cb = YahooChart.Designer.Controls _
    .Add("forms.CommandButton.1")
  With cb
      .Caption = "Done"
      .Left = 5
      .Top = 5
  End With
'   Add an event-hander sub for the CommandButton
  With YahooChart.CodeModule
'   ** Add/change next 5 lines
'       This code adds the commands/event handlers to the form
      x = .CountOfLines
      .InsertLines x + 1, "Sub CommandButton1_Click()"
      .InsertLines x + 2, "MsgBox ""Done"""
      .InsertLines x + 3, "Unload Me"
      .InsertLines x + 4, "End Sub"
  End With

' Add a WebBrowser
Set wb = YahooChart.Controls.Add("Shell.Explorer.2", "x", True)
With wb
  .Top = 10
  .Width = 780
End With
'   Show the form
  VBA.UserForms.Add(FormName).Show
'
'   Delete the form
  ThisWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents.Remove VBComponent:=YahooChart
End Sub

Why aren't you using Designer for the WebBrowser?

You use it when adding the other controls.

I tried that but could not get it to work. Pleas give me the correcet syntax.
The syntax I am trying I found by using Google.
NorieAnalyst Assistant Commented:
I used basically the same syntax as you used but with Designer.
  Set WB = TempForm.Designer.Controls.Add("Shell.Explorer.2", "x", True)

Open in new window

Actually Just realised, I also declared wb as Object since I wasn't sure what type of object it would be.

It does appear to be a WebBrowser in the Watch windows, but when I run the code I get a catastrophic error if I've declared it as that.

I also tried MSForms.Control and that worked fine, that's what I sometimes use anyway when creating forms - it allows me to reuse the same variable for textboxes, labels etc.
