    Resolved [RESOLVED] WebBrowser Context Menu halts my program...

    Using the following code:

    Code:
    CreateObject("WScript.Shell").SendKeys "+{F10}", True
    to open the context menu after I've gotten the focus on a link on the page. Once that is done, my program simply stops. It's like popping up that context menu sends my program into a hidden loop, not allowing the rest of the code to perform. Any ideas?

    Not sure why you are using scripting control vs VB's SendKeys. With VB (assuming scripting control also), that 2nd parameter of True tells VB to wait for the reply (synchronous). Try changing to False

    The original SendKeys doesn't work in Windows 7. Using it gives a runtime error 70: "Permission denied".
    Changing it to False does nothing.

    I've also tried DoEvents to see if that will clear it, but it just sits there as before.

    Well, you can always try the SendInput API. There are many examples on the web and likely in this forum.

    Though this doesn't solve the original issue, I figured out how to obtain the information I needed without having to use the WebBrowser control's context menu.

    Code:
    WebBrowser1.Document.ActiveElement.OuterText
    ...gets the link's text that has the focus.

    Code:
    WebBrowser1.Document.ActiveElement.OuterHtml
    ...gets the actual link.
