WebBrowser.DocumentCompleted Firing Multiple Times

I’m running in to the same problem that Adi ran into wherein the DocumentCompleted event of the WebBrowser control is firing more than once. Sometimes a lot of times!

Seems to me that this should be a Once and Only Once type of thing.

Here’s my diagnostic output when I open techcrunch.com: the timestamped lines are the DocumentCompleted events; the others are the ProgressChanged events.

'Snapper.WinForm.vshost.exe' (Managed): Loaded 'C:\Windows\assembly\GAC_MSIL\System.Configuration\2.0.0.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\System.Configuration.dll', Skipped loading symbols. Module is optimized and the debugger option 'Just My Code' is enabled.

Aside from the fact that it took 18 seconds to get this page’s contents in code (whereas FasterFox reports 8 seconds in Flock), having 11 DocumentCompleted events seems a little odd.

UPDATE: Looking at this the answer seems to pop out at me.  Just wait for the ProgressChanged event to change to “Complete” before I do anything meaningful in the DocumentCompleted event handler.  I’ll give that a try right now.
