Creating a web browser

So there isn't many visual basics tutorials so why not write one myself??? So open up VB6 and create a new project with 1 form!

Now create 5 command buttons call them
  • cmdforward
  • cmdback
  • cmdstop
  • cmdrefresh
  • cmdgo


Label them as you want!
Now create a combo box and call it cburl!

Now right click where all the components are and click components then go down to Microsoft internet control! Draw the web browser and call this web

Use the following codes to make your browser work:
If you don't know what to do double click on the back button and put in
web.GoBack

These are the rest of the codes DONT INCLUDE THE CMD STUFF

1
cmrefresh = web.Refresh

1
cmback = web.GoBack

1
cmforward = web.Forward

1
cmstop = web.Stop

1
cmgo = web.navigate (cburl.Text)


Now that's about it for your basic web browser I will be adding more addons soon!

I'm wondering, what if you have a "File not found: IEFrame.DLL/1" I can't seem to fix it, I've googled it and it said re-download Internet Explorer, which I have just done, but it's still messing up, any suggestions?

{{I need it fixed because I am working on a RMB Browser}}

Sorry I messed it up it needs to be like this:::

Code

Private Sub back_Click()
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

WebBrowser1.GoBack ' Back
Exit Sub 'Forgot This Part, Without This You Would Get The Error Message Everytime

ErrorHandler:
MsgBox "You Can Not Go Back Before You Go To At Least 2 Pages", vbOKOnly, "Browser Error"

End Sub


Sorry Bout That, Plus I didnt use the code box lol

I have a question, is it possible for it to give an alert instead of giving an error when you click back before 2 pages?
