    Angry how to set Source of webbrowser to static string?

    Hi,

    im trying to set the source of a webbrowser to a static string, but when i run it i get an exception. Can anyone tell me why?

    Code:
    <Window x:Class="FlowDocTest.MainWindow"
            xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
            xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
            xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
            xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
            xmlns:clr="clr-namespace:System;assembly=mscorlib"
            xmlns:local="clr-namespace:FlowDocTest"
            mc:Ignorable="d"
            Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
        <Window.Resources>
            <clr:String x:Key="gg">http://www.google.nl</clr:String>
        </Window.Resources>

    Re: how to set Source of webbrowser to static string?

    Ok i found out what i was doing wrong:"Apparently the inner-exception was: Cannot convert string to URI.

    So here is the corrected sample:

    Code:
    <Window x:Class="FlowDocTest.MainWindow"
            xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
            xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
            xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
            xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
            xmlns:sys="clr-namespace:System;assembly=System"
            xmlns:local="clr-namespace:FlowDocTest"
            mc:Ignorable="d"
            Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
         <Grid>
            <Grid.Resources>
                <sys:Uri x:Key="strHTML">D:\Manual.html</sys:Uri>
            </Grid.Resources>
            <WebBrowser Source="{StaticResource strHTML}"/>
        </Grid>
    </Window>
