The Navigate method cannot be called from an event handler for the Loading event because the view is not yet loaded when this event occurs, and task panes are associated with the view.

This member can be accessed only by forms running in the same domain as the currently open form, or by forms that have been granted cross-domain permissions.

This type or member can be accessed only from code running in forms opened in Microsoft InfoPath Filler.

' the TaskPanes collection.
Dim oTaskPane As HtmlTaskPane = _
