Step 1: The Template
Open a new project in Visual Studio, and choose "Windows Forms Application".
Step 2: Getting What You Need
Next, go to the toolbox and get one textbox, 5 buttons, and one webBrowser.
Step 3: Naming the Buttons
Now you need to layout everything the way you want it. Now name your buttons: back, forward, go, refresh, and home.
Step 4: Programming Everything
This is my favorite part. Programming!! For each of the things we program you need to double click them to show the script.
For the back button, in the blank space type in WebBrowser1.GoBack() now close the script window
For the forward button, in the blank space type in WebBrowser1.GoForward() now close the script window
For the Go button, in the blank space type in WebBrowser1.Navigate(TextBox1.Text) now close the script window
For the Home Button, in the blank space type in WebBrowser1.GoHome() now close the script window
For the refresh button, type in WebBrowser1.Refresh() now close the script window
Now that we've programmed everything, it will work!!
Step 5: Debug It!
Now press F5, or go to bar on top with file, edit, view... Click the debug tab, then click start debuging. Now your browser will open up! When you click the home button, it should take you to your home page of your default web browser.
Step 6: Finishing
Now save your project, and you can visit your browser at anytime!
