What's it like at the beach right now? Does your ISP connection time you out for no activity? Simple code to solve both problems.

The attached code uses a webbrowser, timer control, and combobox to:

  • Display a live web cam on the boardwalk and the kite loft at Ocean City, Maryland, Delmar Beach Surf and sunset beach cam in Hawaii.
  • Refresh the cam every minute
  • The combo box code shows how to list multiple common names and link to an array of URL addresses
Of course, you can easily change the code to point the web browser at your favorite live cam.

Create a executable on your desktop or add to your startup group. Click on the outside edge of the form to unload.


Instructions: Click the link below to download the code. Select 'Save' from the IE popup dialog. Once downloaded, open the .zip file from your local drive using WinZip or a comparable program to view the contents.
