Web Browser Control In Windows Form

Here I am explaining the web browser control in windows form. This control is just like a browser, it will open any web site in it.

So here are the steps for displaying web browser control.

  • Open a new windows project.
  • Take a textbox,web browser control and a button on the form.
  • Arrange the form as shown in the following figure.

Adjust the height and width of the web browser control so that it could clearly show a web site.

Under button click,  write the following code to display the url in the web browser control.

  1. private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)   
  2. {  
  3.     if (textBox1.Text != null)   
  4.     {  
  5.         webBrowser1.Url = new System.Uri(textBox1.Text, System.UriKind.Absolute);  
  6.     }   
  7.     else   
  8.     {  
  9.         MessageBox.Show("Please Enter a URL");  
  10.     }  
  11. }
Now run the application with typing the c# Csharp corner url and click on Browse button.

Now click google.com in the textbox.

In this way the web browser works and we can open any URL in it.
