Not applicable.

An HTML document may consist of a FRAMESET that defines multiple fixed FRAME objects, each of which contains its own HTML page. Alternatively, a document may contain a number of IFRAME objects, which can position documents arbitrarily inside of other documents. FRAME objects and IFRAME objects are represented at their top-most level by an HtmlWindowCollection, which contains elements of type HtmlWindow.

HtmlWindowCollection supports the IEnumerator interface so that it can be used in loop constructs. It also defines an Item method, which allows access to the elements of the collection either via a method call or using standard array syntax.

If you create new windows with the Open or OpenNew methods, and the documents hosted by these windows contain FRAME or IFRAME elements, that these elements will appear in the HtmlWindowCollection of the parent page.

For more information on frames, see the documentation for the Frames property.

The following code example inspects each document within a page containing frames and creates a table of all of the outgoing hyperlinks from each page for future inspection.

Dim LinksTable As Hashtable

Private Sub GetLinksFromFrames()
    LinksTable = New Hashtable()
    Dim FrameUrl As String

    If (WebBrowser1.Document IsNot Nothing) Then
        With WebBrowser1.Document
            Dim CurrentWindow As HtmlWindow = .Window
            If (CurrentWindow.Frames.Count > 0) Then
                For Each Frame As HtmlWindow In CurrentWindow.Frames
                    FrameUrl = Frame.Url.ToString()
                    Dim FrameLinksHash As New Hashtable()
                    LinksTable.Add(FrameUrl, FrameLinksHash)

                    For Each HrefElement As HtmlElement In Frame.Document.Links
                        FrameLinksHash.Add(HrefElement.GetAttribute("HREF"), "Url")
                    Next
                Next
            Else
                Dim DocLinksHash As New Hashtable()
                LinksTable.Add(.Url.ToString(), DocLinksHash)

                For Each HrefElement As HtmlElement In .Links
                    DocLinksHash.Add(HrefElement.GetAttribute("HREF"), "Url")
                Next
            End If
        End With
    End If
End Sub
