How do I add the WebBrowser control to a web adapter interrogated using Global Web Pages?

Updated on January 30, 2017

If you created a web adapter and interrogated everything using Global Web Pages, you will not have a WebBrowser control to which you can assign the Navigate() method to go to a specific URL. To add this control, follow these steps:

Note: Keep in mind that if the IgnoreMainBrowser property is set to True (the default), Studio creates a WebDocument instead of a WebBrowser.

  1. Start the interrogation.
  2. Click the Windows tab in the Designer window.

  3. Click the List Windows button.

  4. In the search box at the bottom of the Designer search for Internet explorer_server. This is the WebBrowser control.

  5. From the tree, right-click on the control and select Create Control.

  6. This adds the WebBrowser and its hierarchy to Object Explorer.

  7. Depending on your needs, you may need to delete or update the Window Text Match Rule created for the top two controls in this hierarchy.
