    Unhappy Need help.... Went from WinForms to WPF. RE: WebBrowser - Click submit

    So I've went from a winform with my app to a new WPF version because I've wanted to to a ribbon.

    So I never used WPF before and pretty much took a crash course in the over the last couple of weeks. Everything has went smootly up until the last 48hrs.

    All I need to do it click "submit" on a form/ webpage inside of the WPF webbrowser. (TALK ABOUT A NITEMARE!)

    Old way that worked perfectly:

    wbGetHost.Document.All("get_host_info").Focus() ' Focus on textbox in form
    wbGetHost.Document.All("get_host_info").InnerText = rgServers.SelectedItem 'Set text of textbox
    wbGetHost.Document.GetElementById("Submit").InvokeMember("Click") ' Click submit button



    Everything works except the "click" event and I cant find anything on how to get it to work.



    Thanks for any help!

    Re: Need help.... Went from WinForms to WPF. RE: WebBrowser - Click submit

    Hi,

    In my WPF webbrowser loadcompleted event, I loaded google.com's page
    and then performing a search on that page by posting a value in it's
    search textbox, and then clicking it's search button.

    This uses mshtml namespace.

    Code:
    HTMLDocument document = (HTMLDocument)wbGetHost.Document;
                HTMLInputElement searchText = (HTMLInputElement)document.getElementById("q");
                searchText.value = "Bill Gates";
    
                HTMLInputElement searchButton = (HTMLInputElement)document.all.item("btnK", 0);
                searchButton.click();
    You can include some trappings/snippets to meet your needs...
