WebBrowser.Stop Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Cancels any pending navigation and stops any dynamic page elements, such as background sounds and animations.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public void Stop ()
public void Stop ()
public function Stop ()

You can use the Stop method to implement a Stop button similar to the one in Internet Explorer.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Stop method to implement a Stop button for the WebBrowser control similar to the one in Internet Explorer. This example requires that your form contains a WebBrowser control called webBrowser1 and a Button control called ButtonStop.

For the complete code example, see How to: Add Web Browser Capabilities to a Windows Forms Application.

// Halts the current navigation and any sounds or animations on 
// the page.
private void stopButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
