I have a plugin that also creates a embedded web control (C# web browser control). I need to be able to hook ito that the same way I am hooked into the main browser window. I need to get at the same HtmlDocument object.

Plugin has mshtml.HTMLDocument HTMLDocument.

I can get Script object for that and do stuff

WebBrowser has System.Windows.Forms.HtmlDocument Document property

I try all sorts of tricks to get the underlying mshtml.HTMLDocument but cannot get it

In particular I want to create object in document DOM that points to my code. Like this

scriptEngine.GetType().InvokeMember("bhoModule", BindingFlags.SetProperty, null, scriptEngine, new object[] { new XX.XX() });

i worked it out

var doc = webBrowser1.Document;

var d = doc.DomDocument as mshtml.HTMLDocument;

But now I have different question

the InvokeMember code above will only set variables that already exist in javascript engine (ie I need var bhoModule; in html page). Is there a way to set a variable in global scope (wind ow .foo) without having to modify script of page

Hi Paul,

I didn't tested it but you probably can use the 'execScript' function of HTML Window.
