 property bool ScriptErrorsSuppressed { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool ScriptErrorsSuppressed { get; set; }
member this.ScriptErrorsSuppressed : bool with get, set
Public Property ScriptErrorsSuppressed As Boolean
Property Value

true if the control does not display its dialog boxes; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Exceptions

A reference to an implementation of the IWebBrowser2 interface could not be retrieved from the underlying ActiveX WebBrowser control.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to suppress script errors without suppressing other dialog boxes. In the example, the ScriptErrorsSuppressed property is set to false to ensure that dialog boxes are displayed. A handler for the HtmlWindow.Error event suppresses the error. This event is only accessible when a document is finished loading, so the handler is attached in a DocumentCompleted event handler.

// Hides script errors without hiding other dialog boxes.
private void SuppressScriptErrorsOnly(WebBrowser browser)
{
    // Ensure that ScriptErrorsSuppressed is set to false.
    browser.ScriptErrorsSuppressed = false;

    // Handle DocumentCompleted to gain access to the Document object.
    browser.DocumentCompleted +=
        new WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventHandler(
            browser_DocumentCompleted);
}

private void browser_DocumentCompleted(object sender, 
    WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventArgs e)
{
    ((WebBrowser)sender).Document.Window.Error += 
        new HtmlElementErrorEventHandler(Window_Error);
}

private void Window_Error(object sender, 
    HtmlElementErrorEventArgs e)
{
    // Ignore the error and suppress the error dialog box. 
    e.Handled = true;
}
' Hides script errors without hiding other dialog boxes.
Private Sub SuppressScriptErrorsOnly(ByVal browser As WebBrowser)

    ' Ensure that ScriptErrorsSuppressed is set to false.
    browser.ScriptErrorsSuppressed = False

    ' Handle DocumentCompleted to gain access to the Document object.
    AddHandler browser.DocumentCompleted, _
        AddressOf browser_DocumentCompleted

End Sub

Private Sub browser_DocumentCompleted(ByVal sender As Object, _
ByVal e As WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventArgs)

    AddHandler CType(sender, WebBrowser).Document.Window.Error, _
        AddressOf Window_Error

End Sub

Private Sub Window_Error(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As HtmlElementErrorEventArgs)

    ' Ignore the error and suppress the error dialog box. 
    e.Handled = True

End Sub

Remarks

Set this property to false to debug Web pages that you display in the WebBrowser control. This is useful when you use the control to add Web-based controls and scripting code to your application. It is less useful when you use the control as a generic browser. When you have finished debugging your application, set this property to true to suppress script errors.

Note

When ScriptErrorsSuppressed is set to true, the WebBrowser control hides all its dialog boxes that originate from the underlying ActiveX control, not just script errors. Occasionally you might need to suppress script errors while displaying dialog boxes such as those used for browser security settings and user login. In this case, set ScriptErrorsSuppressed to false and suppress script errors in a handler for the HtmlWindow.Error event. For more information, see the code example in this topic.
