I added a web browser control and navigates to the url I want.

I'd like to simulate clicking on a link. However, that link runs a javascript.
What happens when I click it, is that internet explorer opens up the link, instead of it opening in my windows forms.

What I have tried:

I've tried 
wb.Document.InvokeScript("javascript_procedure_name") but this also opens up internet explorer.

This is definitely true for HyperText Markup Applications and used to be true for embedded web in forms, but I do not know if it is still true for Windows forms ...
Web browsers in forms run using an old HTML DLL which equates to MS-IE7 (HTML3 + CSS2 + JavaScript1.3).

I see that the javascript is doing window.open() to go to a new page in a different window.
Handle the control's NewWindow event, cancel it, and display the URL in your own form instead.

WebBrowser.NewWindow Event (System.Windows.Forms) | Microsoft Docs[^]

NB: The WebBrowser control is extremely limited. By default, it will be stuck in IE7-mode, which means many websites will break. You may want to use a more modern control instead - for example:
Microsoft Edge WebView2 Control - Microsoft Edge Development | Microsoft Docs[^]
