    How have you made the web browser, what control are you using?

    I'm not at a computer with VB at the moment so i havn't tested this, but try putting this code in your forms Load event:

    WebBrowser1.Navigate ("www.MyDefaultPage.com")

    I'm not too sure what you want to do.

    Do you want to load a specific web page after a given time, say every 5 minutes?

    Add a timer control to your form (from the control toolbox), give it an appropriate interval (in seconds), the put the code i gave above into the timer's "Timer" event.

    Actually, it's in milliseconds (thousandths of a second) . Remember, though, that the maximum interval is 65535 milliseconds (1.09225 minutes). If you want the interval to be over that, you'll need to use some tricks. Otherwise, the timer is fine as it is.

    Oops!!

    If you do need an interval longer than that take a look at the SetTimer API, or have a counter variable in a timer with an interval of a minute.

    You could set X=0 then have the timer go for 1000 and every time make x = x + 1 and when it gets to 5 load the page.

    Did you mean this:

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Form_Load()
    2.     WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://google.com")
    3.     Timer1.Interval = 10000 '2 second
    4.     Timer1.Enabled = True
    5. End Sub
    6.  
    7.  
    8. Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    9. Static iCounter As Integer
    10.  
    11.     iCounter = iCounter + 1
    12.     If iCounter = 6 Then
    13.         frmBrowser.Show
    14.         WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://yahoo.com")
    15.         iCounter = 0 'With your other code and this, every minute the navigate will fire
    16.             'With this line commented out, it will only happen once
    17.     End If
    18.  
    19. End Sub

    oops im sorry it does load, did not know it takes a min.
    i thought it loads every 2 seconds.

    but the problem is yahoo.com is still refreshing and not stoping
    is there something i did wrong?



    Code:
    Private Sub Form_Load()
    
      WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://google.com")
        Timer1.Interval = 10000 '2 second
        Timer1.Enabled = True
    End Sub
    
    
    Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    Static iCounter As Integer
    
        iCounter = iCounter + 1
        If iCounter = 6 Then
        frmBrowser.Show
            WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://yahoo.com")
            iCounter = 0 'With your other code and this, every minute the navigate will fire
                'With this line commented out, it will only happen once
        End If
    
    End Sub

    Comment out the line iCounter = 0 to make it only go to Yahoo once (after 1 minute). The interval multiplied by the control expression's constant in that if (6) is how long it will wait. In this case, it's 10,000 milliseconds times 6 = 60,000 milliseconds = 60 seconds = 1 minute. One other thing you might want to do if it only loads once is to disable the timer after you're done with it.

    On how to make it only navigate to Yahoo 1 time after 1 minute:

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Form_Load()
    2.  
    3.   WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://google.com")
    4.     Timer1.Interval = 10000 '2 second
    5.     Timer1.Enabled = True
    6. End Sub
    7.  
    8.  
    9. Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    10. Static iCounter As Integer
    11.  
    12.     iCounter = iCounter + 1
    13.     If iCounter = 6 Then
    14.     frmBrowser.Show
    15.         WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://yahoo.com")
    16.         Timer1.Enabled = False
    17.     End If
    18.  
    19. End Sub

    I hope I've answered what you asked. If not, just elaborate and I'll do it again

    Something like.....

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Form_Load()
    2.  
    3.   WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://google.com")
    4.     Timer1.Interval = 10000 '2 second
    5.     Timer1.Enabled = True
    6. End Sub
    7.  
    8.  
    9. Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    10. Static iCounter As Integer
    11.  
    12.     iCounter = iCounter + 1
    13.     If iCounter = 6 Then
    14.         frmBrowser.Show
    15.         WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://yahoo.com")
    16.     End If
    17.     If iCounter = 12 Then
    18.         frmBrowser.Show
    19.         WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://cnn.com")
    20.         Timer1.Enabled = False
    21.     End If
    22. End Sub

    This'll originally go to Google, then, after 1 minute, Yahoo, and then, after another minute, CNN.com.

    10.

    The Interval property is in milliseconds which are thousandths of a second. Therefore, 1000 ms (abbreviation for milliseconds) = 1 second. 10 seconds = 10,000 ms.

    Yes. Doing it in steps: 6 minutes = 6*60 seconds = 360 seconds. 360 seconds = 360 * 1000 ms = 360000.

    Well, that won't work because Integers can only hold a maximum of 32767.

    I think you are better off using a string (what is the maximum for a Long?)

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Form_Load()
    2.  
    3.     Timer1.Interval = 1000  '1 sec
    4.     Timer1.Enabled = True
    5.    
    6. End Sub
    7.  
    8.  
    9. 'create a Timer on your form and set Interval = 1000 (1 second or whatever)
    10. Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    11. Static strCounter As String
    12. Dim add As String
    13. add = "1"
    14.  
    15.     strCounter = strCounter + add
    16.     If strCounter ="360000" Then '6minutes as passed
    17.         WebBrowser.Navigate ("www.google.com")
    18.         intCounter = 0
    19.     End If
    20.  
    21. End Sub

    Change strCounter (or intCounter) to Currency.

    VB Code:
    1. Dim strCounter As Currency
    2. Private Sub Form_Load()
    3.  
    4.     Timer1.Interval = 1000  '1 sec
    5.     Timer1.Enabled = True
    6.    
    7. End Sub
    8.  
    9.  
    10. 'create a Timer on your form and set Interval = 1000 (1 second or whatever)
    11. Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    12.     hAdd strCounter, "1000"
    13.     MsgBox strCounter
    14.     If strCounter = "360000" Then '6minutes as passed
    15.         WebBrowser1.Navigate2 "www.google.com"
    16.         strCounter = "0"
    17.     End If
    18.  
    19. End Sub
    20.  
    21. Sub hAdd(a As Variant, b As Variant)
    22. strCounter = a + b
    23. End Sub
