I am using a Webbrowser control to sign into Hotmail. Then once it is signed in then I'll just use this navigate code to open the inbox:

I think that the problem is that the actual inbox(mail window) is within an iframe. I have to figure out how to call within the iframe.

If you can goto hotmail and sign in and you'll see once your in the inbox when you view source it isn't the inbox's source but then when you right click then goto this frame then view the source to the frame it is.

WebBrowser1.Navigate("http://g.live.com/9uxp9en-us/hdr_main4??su=http://shared.live.com/Live.Mail")

Now my problem from this point on is how to open the very first email. I have tried using my click link code that I have, I have tried everything. I have spent 3 days searching the net and trying different stuff. I know that it's 100 percent possible. I am praying that someone that is a Webbrowser Control Genius can help me!

Maybe this can help, this is some html to the page where the inbox is. This isn't the inbox's source but thought that this could help. This is what is calling to the iframe :

function loadIM(q)
    {
        if (gLoadIM &&
            (!q || q.indexOf('nwi=1') < 0)) 
        {
            gLoadIM = false;
            var win = getUiWindow(), loc = win.location;
            gUIFrameBaseUrl = loc.host;
            var imFrame = document.getElementById("IMFrame");
            if (imFrame)
            {
                imFrame.src = [loc.protocol, "//", gUIFrameBaseUrl, "/im/pages/im.aspx"].join("");
            }
            imFrame = null;
        }
   }


    function uiFrameLoad()
    {
        //
        try
        {
            if(!isPersistenceInline)
            {
                document.title = window.frames[0].document.title;
            }

            if (gLoadIM)
            {
                loadIM(getUiWindow().location.search); 
            }

        }
        catch(e)
        {
        }
    }
    function beforeUnloadHandler()
    {
        try
        {
            var frameUrl = getUiWindow().document.location.href;
            document.cookie = "afu=" + escape(frameUrl) + ";path=/;domain=.mail.live.com;";
        }
        catch(e)
        {
        }
    }
    function getUiFrame()
    {
        return document.getElementById("UIFrame");
    }
    function getUiFrameOrBody()
    {
        return isPersistenceInline ? document.body : getUiFrame();
    }
    function getUiWindow()
    {
        return isPersistenceInline ? window : getUiFrame().contentWindow;
    }
    function makePersistenceStandalone()
    {
        isPersistenceInline = false;

        var imFrame = document.getElementById("IMFrame");
        if(imFrame && imFrame.contentWindow.updateUIFrameRef)
        {
            imFrame.contentWindow.updateUIFrameRef();
        }

    }
    function redirectToLandingPage()
    {
        if(!isPersistenceInline)
        {
            getUiFrame().src = 'http\x3a\x2f\x2fbl136w.blu136.mail.live.com\x2fmail\x2fInboxLight.aspx\x3fFolderID\x3d00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001\x26InboxSortAscending\x3dFalse\x26InboxSortBy\x3dDate\x26n\x3d74874372';
        }
    }

I didn't post all the code I just posted what I though was important.

Who every can help me with this, I will do anything for you lol. I would love to give you something for your help. This is how much this means to me and I have just gave it all the sweat and blood that I can :)

Thank you so very much and God Bless,

Thomas

Upload a sample project demonstrating the problem. It is a lot of work to get a test scenario set up to answer your question.

Not really because it's just a webbrowser control. All i'm asking is when you just simply login to hotmail and goto into the inbox how to actually open up the first email.

I really don't need any project file file because all the code in the project will not help at all with this. This is why I have posted all the html with it.

It blows my mind I can't find anyone at all that knows enough about webbrowser controls to help me.

I am so upset :(

Can you please help me, I'll do anything my friend, anything.

If it will help maybe though here is the code I have so far,

WebBrowser1.Navigate("http://www.hotmail.com", Nothing, Nothing, Nothing)

        Do Until WebBrowser1.ReadyState = WebBrowserReadyState.Complete
            Application.DoEvents()
        Loop

        If Not TextExists("Hotmail", False) And TextExists("Sign in", False) Then GoTo start

        If TextExists("Sign in with a different account", False) Then
            clicklink("Sign in with a different account")
            Do Until WebBrowser1.ReadyState = WebBrowserReadyState.Complete
                Application.DoEvents()
            Loop
            Delay(3)
        End If

        Me.WebBrowser1.Document.GetElementById("i0116").InnerText = (emailused) : Delay(1)
        Me.WebBrowser1.Document.GetElementById("i0118").InnerText = (pwused) : Delay(1)

        Me.WebBrowser1.Document.GetElementById("i0201").InvokeMember("click") : Delay(2)
        Me.WebBrowser1.Document.GetElementById("SI").InvokeMember("click") : Delay(1)

        Do Until WebBrowser1.ReadyState = WebBrowserReadyState.Complete
            Application.DoEvents()
        Loop

        Delay(3)

        WebBrowser1.Navigate("http://g.live.com/9uxp9en-us/hdr_main4??su=http://shared.live.com/Live.Mail")

        Do Until WebBrowser1.ReadyState = WebBrowserReadyState.Complete
            Application.DoEvents()
        Loop
