Can anyone help this hopeless newbie d'oh! with VB code to replicate the functionality found in the Tabbed Browser sample project (and in the off-the-shelf Chrome browser) where when the user moves the mouse over a hyperlink, the link URL gets captured and displayed at the bottom of the form? I don't know the first thing about XAML so the Tabbed Browser code is no help. I'm using a trial license.

Hi,

This would not have anything to do with WPF or XAML. The key to this is to handle the WebView's StatusMessageChanged event. You would then get the new "status message" through WebView.StatusMessage in your event handler.

Hope this helps.

Thanks!

eo_support thank you for the quick response, it works! Here is VB code:

AddHandler web1.StatusMessageChanged, AddressOf DisplayHoverLink

Private Sub DisplayHoverLink(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
txtMouseoverLink.Text = web1.StatusMessage
End Sub
