I am trying to use a particular website, using a WebBrowser component in a VB.Net app.

I do not have any control over the website that I am trying to access, but it works fine through Google Chrome.

Looking at the source of the website in question, it has the following form defined:

<form name="frmSearch" id="frmSearch" method="post" onSubmit="return false;" action="MeetingList.php">

Within this form, is the following button:

<a id="SPFundGoButtonLink" href="javascript:DoSearch(gnSearchFund);"><img id="SPFundGoButtonImage" src="4057/images/go.gif" border="0"></a>

If I visit this site in Google Chrome and click the above defined button, it works fine, however if I navigate to the same site in a WebBrowser component and click the same button it generates the following error:

'gnSearchFund' is undefined.

Any idea why this works in Chrome but not the WebBroswer component, and more importantly, can anyone think of a workaround for this?
