Built In View HTM function

Built In View HTM function

I'm trying to add a new item under the Help menu that will open an HTM file.


I know that Arbortext has a built in view_pdf function and when I call it it does open the .htm file that I need within the web browser. However, I was wondering if there was a built-in view_htm or view_html function?


Thanks in advance for your response.

Hi, Sarah...

Try compose::compose_viewhtml(yourHTMfile, 1).

-Brandon 🙂


Alternately, if you're using Java and want to call the default
browser, you can use:

String yourUrl = "file:///c:/somedir/somefile.html";
Runtime.getRuntime().exec("rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler " + yourUrl);

We use:
browse_url($url)
