The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the WebBrowser.Navigating event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type WebBrowser named WebBrowser1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the WebBrowser.Navigating event.

private void WebBrowser1_Navigating(Object sender, WebBrowserNavigatingEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Url", e.Url );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "TargetFrameName", e.TargetFrameName );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Cancel", e.Cancel );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "Navigating Event" );
