WPF browser control link opening

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)
            {
                System.Windows.MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString());
            }
            finally
            {
                e.Cancel = true;
            }

Open in new window


Cheers,
Dean

This is the code I used: ( and this worked)

public MainWindow()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            this.WebBrowser_Sourcing_Netcomponents_Enquiry.LoadCompleted += new LoadCompletedEventHandler(WebBrowser_Sourcing_Netcomponents_Enquiry_LoadCompleted);
            OpenBrowser();
        }

        private void OpenBrowser()
        {
            this.WebBrowser_Sourcing_Netcomponents_Enquiry.Navigate("https://www.brokerforum.com");
        }



        void WebBrowser_Sourcing_Netcomponents_Enquiry_Navigated(object sender, NavigationEventArgs e)
        {
           
        }

        void WebBrowser_Sourcing_Netcomponents_Enquiry_LoadCompleted(object sender, NavigationEventArgs e)
        {
            //Ricci Gian Maria
            mshtml.HTMLDocument HTMLdoc = this.WebBrowser_Sourcing_Netcomponents_Enquiry.Document as mshtml.HTMLDocument;
            foreach (mshtml.IHTMLElement item in HTMLdoc.links)
            {
                var targetAttributeValue = item.getAttribute("target");
                if (targetAttributeValue != null)
                {
                    item.setAttribute("target", "_self");
                }
            }
        }

You right I tried this in a project:
add Reference|Extensions: Microsoft.mshtml
In the MainWindow add
WebBrowser1.LoadCompleted += new LoadCompletedEventHandler(WebBrowser1_LoadCompleted);

 void WebBrowser1_LoadCompleted(object sender, NavigationEventArgs e)
        {
            //Ricci Gian Maria
            mshtml.HTMLDocument HTMLdoc = WebBrowser1.Document as mshtml.HTMLDocument;
            foreach (mshtml.IHTMLElement item in HTMLdoc.links)
            {
                var targetAttributeValue = item.getAttribute("target");
                if (targetAttributeValue != null)
                {
                    item.setAttribute("target", "_self");
                }
            }
        }

I tried it this is working
