How to copy and past web text into local VB text box

How to copy and past web text into local VB text box


I am trying to collect web data. The code I wrote has worked for a while, but now it does not. It will be greatly appeciated if some expert would help me.

Thank you very much.

The code is as follow:

frmWeb.Visible = True
dim a

'open web page
a  = ""
frmWeb.WebBrowser1.Navigate a
Loop While frmWeb.WebBrowser1.Busy

'copy and past web content
frmWeb.WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_SELECTALL, _
frmWeb.WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_COPY, _  
text1.text = LCase(Clipboard.GetText)
