A Windows API browser that shows you all the definitions and help on API methods.

This is just a basic article that shows how to create a program that uses the Microsoft Web Browser control, it is also just a posting that gives you a helpful API browser.

Using the code

// // basic source // 

private System.Windows.Forms.ListBox Functions_listBox; 
public AxSHDocVw.AxWebBrowser WebBrowser1;

/// /// The main entry point for the application. /// 

static void Main() 
  Application.Run(new APIBrowser()); 
public static object nullObject = 0; 
public static string str = ""; 
public static object nullObjStr = str; 

private void Functions_listBox_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, 
                                               System.EventArgs e) 
  WebBrowser1.Navigate("" + 
        "articles/art9-1.asp?f=" + 
        ref nullObject, ref nullObjStr, 
        ref nullObjStr, ref nullObjStr);

private void Functions_listBox_DoubleClick(object 
                      sender, System.EventArgs e) 
  WebBrowser1.Navigate("" + 
         Functions_listBox.SelectedItem.ToString() + 
         "&btnG=Google+Search", ref nullObject, 
         ref nullObjStr, ref nullObjStr, ref nullObjStr);

private void Form1_Resize(object sender, System.EventArgs e) 
  Functions_listBox.Width = 264;
  WebBrowser1.Width = this.Width - Functions_listBox.Width - 5;

I learned that the web browser can be useful in linking to help documents not on your computer.
