Can anyone offer me some advise? I currently have a listbox i am using, in the listbox there is a list of images from any website. they are grabbed from the website via this method;;;

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DocumentCompleted(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventArgs) Handles WebBrowser1.DocumentCompleted
    Dim PageElements As HtmlElementCollection = WebBrowser1.Document.GetElementsByTagName("img")
    For Each CurElement As HtmlElement In PageElements
        imagestxt.Items.Add(imagestxt.Text & CurElement.GetAttribute("src") & Environment.NewLine)
    Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

I then use the picture control method to get the image and display it.
pic1.Image = New System.Drawing.Bitmap(New IO.MemoryStream(New System.Net.WebClient().DownloadData(imagestxtimagestxt.SelectedItem.ToString))).SelectedItem.ToString)))

This method pulls the images and title from the HTML.

Private Function StrHTML12() As Boolean
    Dim htmlDocument As HtmlDocument = WebBrowser1.Document
    For Each element As HtmlElement In htmlDocument.All
        If element.TagName.ToUpper = "IMG" Then
        End If
        If element.TagName.ToUpper = "TITLE" Then
            Timer1.Enabled = False
        End If
End Function

This is a counting method to count how many empty alt="" or emply

Basicly what i am looking to do is;

1) Have a program that can check the image, look at the alt = ' ' or <img a l t = ' ' if on the website the dev hasn't put anything in the alt tag i want the image to show in a picture box and i want the alt tag either next to it or underneith it or something. but i have no idea how.

Solution 1

OK .. first create an object that holds the data you want:

Public Class HTMLImages
    Public Image As Image
    Public Description As String
    Public Overrides Function ToString() As String
        Return Description
    End Function
End Class

Then populate your list with the filled objects

Make sure your ListBox.DrawMode is set to DrawMode.OwnerDrawFixed

Handle the ListBox1.DrawItem

Paint what you want if the item is a HTMLImages object
