Code Overview

When the user clicks the C# application button (“C# App Button to Send Data to HTML”), the text message from the C# application (“Message from C#”) gets sent to the HTML webpage and the javascript (test() function in the webpage) displays a popup message using the alert() function.
When the user clicks the HTML button (“Message from HTML”), the text message from the HTML webpage (“Message from HTML”) gets sent to the C# application, and the MessageBox in the Test() function (in the C# application will display a popup with the HTML sent message.
Note that the HTML code is loaded into the WebBrowser control through the DocumentText property instead of being loaded from a separate HTML file.
