Occurs before a new browser window is opened.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.dll)
The WebBrowser control opens a separate browser window when the appropriate overload of the Navigate method is called or when the user clicks Open in New Window on the browser shortcut menu when the mouse pointer hovers over a hyperlink. You can disable the shortcut menu by setting the IsWebBrowserContextMenuEnabled property to false.
The NewWindow event occurs before the new browser window is opened. You can handle this event, for example, to prevent the window from opening when certain conditions have not been met.
For more information about how to handle events, see Consuming Events.
Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
