> Navigates in an Active Document container to a specified location.

> Object.NavigateTo(cTarget [, cLocation [, cFrame]])
>
> Parameters
>
> cTarget
> Specifies the URL to navigate to. cTarget can be a URL or a document supported by the Active Document container such as Microsoft Internet Explorer. The NavigateTo method isn't executed if cTarget is not supported by the Active Document container.
> cLocation
> Specifies a location to navigate to within the URL or document specified with cTarget.
> cFrame
> Specifies a frame to navigate to within the URL or document specified with cTarget.
>
> Remarks
>
> If the NavigateTo method is executed in a hosted Visual FoxPro Active Document, the Active Document host navigates to the specified location.
>
> If the NavigateTo method is executed outside of a hosted Visual FoxPro Active Document, then the application that is registered as supporting Active Documents (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer) is started. For example, if you execute the NavigateTo method from the Command window or a Visual FoxPro program (.prg), your registered Active Document container is started and it navigates to the specified location.
>
> Note that a new instance of your registered Active Document container is started each time you execute the NavigateTo method outside of a hosted Visual FoxPro Active Document. Use the Hyperlink Button Foundation Class to navigate to a URL from a Visual FoxPro application without starting a new instance of your registered Active Document container.

Thank you, colleague Ammar!
Yes, I did find this webpage with NavigateTo method description.
My question was - why it's missing in the VFP's local on-line Help file, as well as on that Hyperlink Control's webpage on MSDN?

Ilya
