Javascript Question

How to inject Javascript in WebBrowser control?

I've tried this:

string newScript = textBox1.Text;
HtmlElement head = browserCtrl.Document.GetElementsByTagName("head")[0];
HtmlElement scriptEl = browserCtrl.Document.CreateElement("script");
lblStatus.Text = scriptEl.GetType().ToString();
scriptEl.SetAttribute("type", "text/javascript");
head.AppendChild(scriptEl);
scriptEl.InnerHtml = "function sayHello() { alert('hello') }";


scriptEl.InnerHtml and scriptEl.InnerText both give errors:

System.NotSupportedException: Property is not supported on this type of HtmlElement.
at System.Windows.Forms.HtmlElement.set_InnerHtml(String value)

Is there an easy way to inject a script into the dom?

Answer

For some reason Richard's solution didn't work on my end (insertAdjacentText failed with an exception). This however seems to work:

HtmlElement head = webBrowser1.Document.GetElementsByTagName("head")[0];
HtmlElement scriptEl = webBrowser1.Document.CreateElement("script");
IHTMLScriptElement element = (IHTMLScriptElement)scriptEl.DomElement;
element.text = "function sayHello() { alert('hello') }";
head.AppendChild(scriptEl);
webBrowser1.Document.InvokeScript("sayHello");

This answer explains how to get the IHTMLScriptElement interface into your project.
