The Uri for the current HTML document.

The WebBrowser instance is no longer valid.

InvalidOperationException

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

SecurityException

Navigation from an application that is running in partial trust to a Uri that is not located at the site of origin.

Setting the source property causes WebBrowser to navigate to the document specified by the Uri. If the Uri is null, a blank document is displayed ("about:blank").

The following example shows how to configure WebBrowser to navigate to an HTML document by using markup only.
