I would like to execute a browser, in this case FireFox or Safari
this code does not work for me
[code] Dim sh As New Shell
sh.Execute(SettingsWindow.CurrentBrowser.Text, URL or Page)[/code]
CurrentBrowser.Text is set to “/Applications/FireFox.App”
that seems to work
how can i choose which browser will be used ?
how would i view a .html page I created in /Library/Applications Support/NameofAPP/page.html ?
dim f as Folderitem = GetFolderItem("/Library/Applications Support/NameofAPP/page.html", Folderitem.PathTypeNative)
dim url as string = f.URLPath
You, as the application author, shouldn’t
You should use whatever is the users default browser - which is what ShowURL will do
Dim s As New Shell
s.Execute(PathToWhateverBrowserYouLike + " " + TheURLYouWantToOpen)
Not tested, but should work with nearly all browsers. But as Norman said, you really shouldn’t do that.
What would happens if you ask to open an uninstalled browser ?
There are ways on the Mac with a bunch of declares.
My question to you, is what did the browser do so wrong that it needs executing
