How can I open a HTML page by pressing a button on the stage?
I've created a rollover button and I'm trying to make it open
an existing html page from the local disk (not an internet URL).
But I can't make it open with Lingo or behaviour.
Thanks a lot.
http://somewhere.html" is the
typical form for a page on
the web, director must use the address format the system's
for local files, this is somewhat platform dependant, a
aproach is to open the file in question from within your
copy and paste the displayed address into your lingo code.
Some report the goToNetPage counterpart provided by the
works more reliably, the xtra can be used for free if limited
couple of functions.
An alternate approach buddyAPI can use is to have the browser
access the html file as if it were double clicked in the file
using the same form commonly used to open PDF files with
(sorry I don't have example code handy)
