Hi guys,

I have a WPF app with the browser control dropped onto a tab. All works well until the website being displayed wants to open a link in a new window, this then breaks out of my app and opens a browser window. How can I open all links within the browser control inside my app?

Found the below code and gave it a try but no joy, anyone got a simple solution?

dynamic browser = sender;
            dynamic activeElement = browser.Document.activeElement;
            var link = activeElement.ToString();
            // this is new Window,if you want open in current page,only change the browser.Source and Cancel the event
            WebBrowser_Sourcing_Netcomponents_Enquiry.Source = new Uri(link);

            catch (Exception ex)
                e.Cancel = true;
