Issue with webbrowser control in a windows form

Issue with webbrowser control in a windows form

I have successfully embedded a webbrowser control onto a windows form. Its purpose is to open up an Excel file.

The problem is, when I run this in the form load routine: me.webBrowser1.Navigate ( _FileName,false)

I get a "file download" popup. I have to choose Load or Save before proceeding.

I don't want that behavior if possible. I would just like the Excel file to load without any dialog box.

Thanks in advance,

Jerry Scannell

RE: Issue with webbrowser control in a windows form

I'm not sure, colleague, why you want to show Excel spreadsheet in a browser, but what you describe is normal web browser's behavior, AFAIK.
I'd rather consider using COM technique to embed Excel into your Form.
I think this would give you a good start: https://www.tutorialspoint.com/vb.net/vb.net_excel...
