I’m trying to make a web browser that can search with Google if the text isn’t a URL. It’s pretty simple. If the text doesn’t contain “.” (or something else) I want it to search with Google.
Here’s what I have so far:
If TextField1.text does not contain "." then
Any help with this?
If TextField1.Text.IndexOf(".") = -1 Then
That works beautifully. Thanks!
If you do this a lot, you might want to write a string extension function:
function DoesNotContain(extends s as string, target as string) as boolean
return s.IndexOf(target) = -1
If TextField1.Text.DoesNotContain(".") then
which might be easier to read and understand.
You could even write it so it extends the textField:
function DoesNotContain(extends tf as TextField, target as string) as boolean
return tf.text.IndexOf(target) = -1
Then your code is simply:
If TextField1.DoesNotContain(".") then
Hey, there, I’m back.
What if I wanted a specific word to go to a specific website.
For example, I want “dneail/stream” to go to dneailstream.com.
And if its possible, can I make a label display the current webpage.

That’s not what I wanted.
If I type “dneail/stream” into the text box, I want HTMLViewer1 to take me to dneailstream.com
My apologies. I figured it out.
The code I used what
If SearchField1.Text="<text>" Then
then continue this process
