The WebBrowser control provides the following capabilities:

Navigation: , Navigate, NavigateToStream, NavigateToString, and Refresh.

Navigation Lifetime: Navigating, Navigated, and LoadCompleted.

Navigation Journaling: , GoBack, , and GoForward.

WPF/HTML Interoperability: InvokeScript and , and .

WebBrowser is bound by the security constraints of the WPF application that is hosting the WebBrowser:

  • When WebBrowser is hosted by a full-trust WPF application (a stand-alone application, for example), WebBrowser can host HTML documents from any location.

  • When WebBrowser is hosted by a partial-trust WPF application (an XBAP, for example), WebBrowser can only host documents that are Site Of Origin application data files. For more information, see WPF Application Resource, Content, and Data Files.

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

The WebBrowser control internally instantiates the native WebBrowser ActiveX control. WPF enables security features by applying feature controls to the WebBrowser ActiveX control. The feature controls that are applied differ for XBAPs and stand-alone applications. Some applications should apply additional feature controls to prevent malicious content from running. For more information, see the "WebBrowser Control and Feature Controls" section in Security (WPF) and WebBrowser Control Overviews and Tutorials.

The following example shows how to configure WebBrowser to navigate to an HTML document by using markup only.

<!-- Web Browser Control that hosts a web page. -->
<WebBrowser x:Name="webBrowser" Source="http://msdn.com" 
  Width="600" Height="600"  />

The following example shows how to configure WebBrowser to navigate to a document by using markup and code-behind.

<StackPanel>
    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
        <TextBox x:Name="addressTextBox" Width="200" />
        <Button Click="goNavigateButton_Click">Go</Button>
    </StackPanel>
    <WebBrowser x:Name="myWebBrowser" />
</StackPanel>
private void goNavigateButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    // Get URI to navigate to
    Uri uri = new Uri(this.addressTextBox.Text, UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute);

    // Only absolute URIs can be navigated to
    if (!uri.IsAbsoluteUri)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("The Address URI must be absolute eg 'http://www.microsoft.com'");
        return;
    }

    // Navigate to the desired URL by calling the .Navigate method
    this.myWebBrowser.Navigate(uri);
}

The following example shows how to handle the NewWindow2 event and similar events using a WebBrowser control. This example requires a reference to SHDocVw.dll, a using System.Runtime.InteropServices; statement, and a WebBrowser control named webBrowser1.

public MainWindow()
{
    InitializeComponent();

    var serviceProvider = (IServiceProvider)webBrowser1.Document;
    if (serviceProvider != null)
    {
        Guid serviceGuid = new Guid("0002DF05-0000-0000-C000-000000000046");
        Guid iid = typeof(SHDocVw.WebBrowser).GUID;
        var webBrowserPtr = (SHDocVw.WebBrowser)serviceProvider
            .QueryService(ref serviceGuid, ref iid);
        if (webBrowserPtr != null)
        {
            webBrowserPtr.NewWindow2 += webBrowser1_NewWindow2;
        }
    }
}

private void webBrowser1_NewWindow2(ref object ppDisp, ref bool Cancel)
{
    // Handle the event.
}
