The WebBrowser instance is no longer valid.

A reference to the underlying native WebBrowser could not be retrieved.

There is no document to navigate forward to.

Examples

The following example shows how to navigate forward to the next document by calling GoForward. The example first checks that there are documents to navigate forward to by checking CanGoForward.

private void forwardButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)  
{  
  // Navigate to the next HTML document, if there is one  
  if (this.webBrowser.CanGoForward)  
  {  
    this.webBrowser.GoForward();  
  }  
}  

Remarks

If you call GoForward and there are not any documents to navigate forward to, WebBrowser does not perform a navigation and an exception is thrown. If you need to, you can inspect the value of the CanGoForward property to determine whether there are documents to navigate forward to.
