Hello,

I am using Web Browser control in my WinForms project.

I am calling external site as Web Browser URL.

I could able to catch change in page events of site in Navigated event method of Web Browser.

But I couldn't able to catch AJAX event of page Site (where page is not getting loaded actually, i am selecting a radio button of page and particular part of page like a div is getting refreshed by getting some content from server) in any of the event methods of Web Browser control.

Could anyone help ?

Thanks...

The extensibility object model has no great support for observing scripting execution. It isn't practical, scripting code can run completely asynchronous from the page state at unpredictable times. If there are no reliable DOM modifications made by the script that you can read back then you have no great options beyond just spinning your wheels for a couple of seconds to give it 'enough time'. Shouldn't be a problem given that you run this in a worker thread, just use a System.Windows.Forms.Timer who's Tick event calls Application.ExitThread to end the thread.
Another option:
Don't know if this is exactly what you're after but (providing I know the target's ID or some other characteristic) I do it like this ...
// Get the target
(e.g)

HtmlElement target = _webBrowser.Document.GetElementById("somedivthatwillbepopulatedbytheajaxrequest");
if (target != null)

{
 
target.AttachEventHandler("onpropertychange", new EventHandler(handler));

}

The event will fire whenever the element is (re)populated with HTML so all you do is implement the handler so you can check the InnerHTML or InnerText or whatever it is you need to do, and do it to your hearts content Wink

(e.g)
private void handler(Object sender, EventArgs e)

{

 
HtmlElement div = _webBrowser.Document.GetElementById("somedivthatwillbepopulatedbytheajaxrequest");

if (div == null) return;

String x = div.InnerHtml; // etc

if (!x.Equals("Loading...", StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase))

{

 
// Now the element has been populated, do something

}

}
