    hi guys i created a visual basic web browser application that submits user name, password and then clicks the submit button

    I am having a little problem the browser in visual basic is outdated vb is using IE 7 for some reason. I have internet explorer 11 installed on my computer

    how can I update the visual basic web browser controller so it uses the latest version of internet explorer really need help as all the scripts and css do not work properly without having the latest browser

    I tried using webkit and geckofx but I can not post to web forms with them as both of their librarys don't support the InnerText item etc (so webkit and geckfx are out of the question unless one of you guys have a solution how to post to forms and submit them )

    if anyone knows how to update the browser so it runs on the latest version of internet explorer I will be very grateful and I am whiling to pay for a solution

    Thanks

    Don't know to be honest. Probably it can be set via the registry although I don't know which key.

    But, can't you use javascript to submit forms with webkit and geckofx?

    web browser is a com control so it depends on IE version installed. You cannot upgrade the web browser control itself alone. Try restarting + restart VS and then adding browser control again and see if it works.

    Hey darkpixel never thought of using javascript:) but i guess i can. @jamesvick i got it working now :) i forced the control to update by adding some code in form1 designer. the code i added allows me to use what ever version of ie i want to use also added a cool useragent cloaking feature.
