Default Web Browser Control


I am trying to get status text of the browser using following code but for some reason I am not getting any values back. Any idea why?

// both lines doesn't work
string result = webBrowser1.Status.Text;
string result = webBrowser1.Document.Window.StatusBarText;

I've run some quick tests, and it works fine for me. What it is returning IS the status bar, it must just mean the status bar is blank.

Try capturing the StatusTextChanged event and check the StatusText value in that, you'll see it gets changed often by the browser itself, so it might be overwriting whatever your web page is writing.
