WebBrowser.GoForward Method

Updated: July 2008

Navigate forward to the next HTML document, if there is one.

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

public void GoForward()
You cannot use methods in XAML.

ExceptionCondition
ObjectDisposedException

The WebBrowser instance is no longer valid.

InvalidOperationException

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

COMException

There is no document to navigate forward to.

If you call GoForward and there are not any documents to navigate forward to, WebBrowser does not perform a navigation and an exception is thrown. If you need to, you can inspect the value of the CanGoForward property to determine whether there are documents to navigate forward to.

The following example shows how to navigate forward to the next document by calling GoForward. The example first checks that there are documents to navigate forward to by checking CanGoForward.

private void forwardButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
  // Navigate to the next HTML document, if there is one
  if (this.webBrowser.CanGoForward)
  {
    this.webBrowser.GoForward();
  }
}
