Webbrowser:Making Changes to Document

pindlebotpindlebot Posts: 2Member
I am trying to make changes to the document in a webbrowser, I can get the html from it with


but when I try to write to it with

((mshtml.IHTMLDocument3)this.WebBrowser.Document).documentElement.innerHTML = "



I get an exception saying: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800A0258): Could not set the innerHTML property. Invalid target element for this operation.

Is this becuase it is readonly or what? I currently write it out to a new page and navigate to the page but that way I loose all the local references. Is there any way to get around this?

Thanks in advance
