Alok, I think you didnt read carefully(:

The textbox is in html page. There is a webbrowser control and it has a textbox(in html page) and then in form, there is a button. When a user write "example" in textbox(in html page), and then click the button, I want to catch this "example".

string txt = ...................; ----> txt must be what user write in textbox.


see the attached project too :
Form1.cs :

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.IO;
using System.Reflection;

namespace GetTextInTextBox
	public partial class Form1 : Form
		public Form1()

		private void btnGetText_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

		private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
			webBrowser1.Url = new Uri(Path.Combine(Path.GetDirectoryName(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location), "pageWithTextBox.htm"));


Form1.Designer.cs :

namespace GetTextInTextBox
	partial class Form1

			this.webBrowser1 = new System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser();
			this.btnGetText = new System.Windows.Forms.Button();
