Script Errors while using System.Windows.Controls.WebBrowser RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using the System.Windows.Controls.WebBrowser to navigate to BING map URL, its throwing an error like below. 


    SuppressScriptErrors does not appear to be an available attribute on my WebControl.

    I have tried the below, but no luck, control is not displaying anything.  

    Dim activeX As Object = Me.WB1.[GetType]().InvokeMember("ActiveXInstance", Reflection.BindingFlags.GetProperty Or Reflection.BindingFlags.Instance Or Reflection.BindingFlags.NonPublic, Nothing, Me.WB1, New Object() {}) activeX.silent = True

  • If you have actually tried setting the WebBrowser.ScriptErrorsSuppressed property to True,  it does not have a SuppressScriptErrors property,  and it did not work,  then perhaps it is because of the following....

     The WebBrowser control emulates Internet Explorer 7 by default and IE7 did not have all the functionality needed to navigate web pages that were designed for newer internet browsers.

     You can make the WebBrowser control emulate newer versions of IE but,  the highest version it can emulate is the highest version you have installed on your computer.  For example,  if you only had IE9 installed on the computer,  then IE9 is the highest version you can make it emulate.  If you have IE11,  then you can make it emulate IE11.

     Crazypennie has given a code example at the link below which will automatically set a registry setting to make your application's WebBrowser control emulate the highest version of IE you have installed.



    If you say it can`t be done then i`ll try it

  • Hi Dkrishna,

    Since this forum is discussing and asking questions about the Visual Basic programming language, IDE, libraries, samples, and tool, and your issue is more related to Silverlight app, I will move this thread to the more related forum.

    Thanks for your understanding and support.
