Property Value


The Uri for the current HTML document.



The WebBrowser instance is no longer valid.

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

Navigation from an application that is running in partial trust to a Uri that is not located at the site of origin.


The following example shows how to configure WebBrowser to navigate to an HTML document by using markup only.

<!-- Web Browser Control that hosts a web page. -->  
<WebBrowser x:Name="webBrowser" Source="http://msdn.com"   
  Width="600" Height="600"  />  


Setting the source property causes WebBrowser to navigate to the document specified by the Uri. If the Uri is null, a blank document is displayed ("about:blank").
