You can use the ExecWB method to print the content inside a WebBrowser control. In addition, you can use ExecWB to change the font size of the text that is displayed in a WebBrowser control that is embedded in Microsoft Visual Basic application. This article demonstrates how to use ExecWB in this way.

Zoom level refers to the current font size of the text that Internet Explorer shows; it is equivalent to the value that is specified as Text Size on the View menu of Internet Explorer.

Because the option allows both 2 levels greater and 2 levels smaller, the valid range for the zoom level is 0 through 4, in which 0 is smallest and 4 is largest. The OLECMDID_GETZOOMRANGE command returns the valid range for the font size, which should be from 0 to 4.
The following steps demonstrate how to add this functionality into your custom browser:
