Introduction: How to Make a Webbrowser in "Visual Basic"
First of all you need to download Microsoft Visual Basic. Any form of Visual Basic is good, but remember, some of them cost money. I use the free version Visual Basic "Express Edition" but like I said, any form will do good. http://www.microsoft.com/Express/VB/ <<If you dont already have VB, heres a link to the free version<<
Step 1: Starting the Project
When you've finished downloading the program you must start the program,
Open VB and and open a new "Windows Forms Application" file
Step 2: Make the Page
The form will look small when you open it, but you need to expand it to the point where it wont expand anymore. Making a full page.
Step 3: Click "Webbrowser" in "Common Tools"
Click "Common Tools" and click "Webbrowser"
Step 4: Make the Page
This part is kind of tricky. After you click "Webbrowser" just click on the page. Then go to the very top right corner and there should be a small "Play Button" looking button. And click. Then click on "Undock from Parent Container" and then drag it to the size you want the website to display.
Step 5: Make It the Size You Want
Then Drag it to the size that you want the Website to display. Leaving a good ammount of space for the URL box and the back button and stuff.
Step 6: Add the Buttons/pictures
Just add the pictures that will work as the buttons like i did, just click on the common tools and find "Picture Box" then click the play button looking thing and upload the picture you want for the button.
Remember: the buttons I put up are just examples!! you can make your own if you want.
Step 7: Insert the Text Boxes
In the common tools you can click text box and put in the URL box and if you like, a search box.
(You only need one though)
Step 8: Personalize (Optional)
You can go to "Properties" and personalize it
Step 9: Coding
Here are the codes
(You dont have to use all of these codes)
You add the codes by double-clicking on the corresponding picture and typing this in:
go back button
go forward button
Step 10: Publish
Click "Build" at the top of the screen and click "Publish"
Finish installing it to where ever you want like your desktop or whatever. Once your done open it and make sure it works.
Step 11: YOU'RE DONE
Now enjoy surfing the web on your customized Webbrowser!
