Make your own web browser

01Dec06

An example of how to create your own simple web browsers with ease. This guide will start you off and hopefully you can try new things, add your own skin & more.

Making a web browser is so simple. It consists of only a few lines of code they are so easy to make use. Let’s start off with starting a new Visual Basic project, a standard exe.Add the following controls onto your form:

  • 5 command buttons
  • 1 web browser
  • 1 text box

Now what’s left to do is put all the code into the commands, as you can see the text box is going to be where you put all of the website urls you want to visit, you could also use a combo box for this which is fine. The command buttons will do different things; the go button is used to go to the website you enter.

As you can see we have got a back button, a forward button, a refresh button a stop button, these are all the basic commands, you can add more as you get more comfortable with the commands.We can now add the code into the commands then you can take it further is you would like.Let’s start off with the Form Load part, firstly we can set our default page for the browser when it loads up.

Rename your web browser to anything simple, I have renamed it to ‘wb’ because it’s short and saves me writing out ‘webbroswer1.’ All of the time.


Private Sub Form_Load()
wb.Navigate \"http://bothack.in\"
End Sub

The code above will load our website into the web browser as soon as the application loads up.

Now put the following code in the buttons required:

Refresh Button

Private Sub Command5_Click()
wb.Refresh
End Sub

Stop Button

Private Sub Command3_Click()
wb.Stop
End Sub

Back Button

Private Sub Command1_Click()
wb.GoBack
End Sub

Forward Button

Private Sub Command2_Click()
wb.GoForward
End Sub

Go Button

Private Sub Command6_Click()
wb.Navigate Text1.Text
End Sub

Now that’s all the code I have shown examples for, if you want to add to your browser then go ahead. Hope this tutorial helped you with the basics of making a web browser.

  5. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from
    an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?

    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start.
