Gets a collection of all of the <FORM> elements in the document.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public HtmlElementCollection Forms { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.HtmlElementCollection

An HtmlElementCollection of the <FORM> elements within the document.

An HTML document may have one or more FORM elements with input fields for submitting data back to a server.

You can programmatically submit a FORM by obtaining its HtmlElement and calling its Submit method using the InvokeMember method.

To add a new FORM to a document, you can either create a new FORM tag as a string, and assign it to the InnerHtml property of an element previously added to the HTML DOM; or you can use the CreateElement method, set its properties using SetAttribute, and add it as a child of an existing element using AppendChild.

The following code example iterates through all of the Form elements on a Web page and clears all user input, setting the forms back to their default values.

private void ResetForms()
    if (webBrowser1.Document != null)
        foreach (HtmlElement form in webBrowser1.Document.Forms)
