WebBrowser.NavigateToString Method

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public void NavigateToString(
	string text
)

Parameters

text
Type: System.String
The String that contains the content for a document.

ExceptionCondition
ObjectDisposedException

The WebBrowser instance is no longer valid.

InvalidOperationException

A reference to the underlying native WebBrowser could not be retrieved.

If the text parameter is null, WebBrowser navigates to a blank document ("about:blank").

If the text parameter is not in valid HTML format, it will be displayed as plain text.

After navigation, Source will be null.

The following example shows how to navigate to a string that contains a document.

private void goNavigateToStringButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
  // Load HTML document as a string
  Uri uri = new Uri(@"pack://application:,,,/HTMLDocumentWithoutScript.html", UriKind.Absolute);
  Stream stream = Application.GetResourceStream(uri).Stream;
  using (StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(stream))
  {
    // Navigate to HTML document string
    this.webBrowser.NavigateToString(reader.ReadToEnd());
  }
}
