A problem many of you may have with an expected end of statement is that you need a semicolon to end the statement. So instead of
you would have to type
Other than that this was a great tutorial!
am getting an error that their is an expected end of the statement.
You have to click on the form and in the bottem right corner click on text and type in the name and press enter.
how would i make a favorites button an dsettings tab and bookmarkbar and allow extentions?
I needed a browser for my XP computer. IE kept crashing, and Chrome would not install due to outdated hardware. To get the install working on the XP, I did need to first download and install "Windows Imaging Component (WIC)" from Microsoft.
For the textbox and the buttons, I used a tablelayoutpanel with column widths set to percentages and rows set to autosize (with textbox spanning all but one column). I put that table (dock set to top) and the webbrowser control (dock set to fill) into another tablelayoutpanel with rows autosized (and only one column). That way I could maximize the program and everything would look the same.
I will be adding tabs and adding an option to set home page to current page. And who knows what else?
Thanks for the quick start!
Just add this line to Home button:
" WebBrowser1.Navigate("http://www.libraryofarticles.com") " (without quotas and choose any website you like) :)
and line "WebBrowser1.GoHome()" you can delete or add « ' » before line, like this:
" 'WebBrowser1.GoHome() ". This line now should be green.
But mainly, if there is not this code line in «Home» button, it will open your default home page you have set on your windows internet options. :)
Hope it works for you!
