HTML file displayed in a window

hi gary.

you need to use the obrowser object.

the obrowser object is a wrapper around a chromium embedded browser — it basically should display about 99% of all html, including javascript and all that stuff.

you can have it load up any web page, or give is a file containing html.

I had a look in the ‘hub’ for studio 10 and there is an example there.  I imagine there is one in the hub for studio 8.1

it will do the job for you.       You can even have omnis interpret clicks on links within the web page or send it off to a real browser.

I’m pretty sure that can be done within an Omnis window, which is my preference, but I guess if I can programmatically hand it off to a browser to load into its own window, that would work too (and, thinking about it now, it’s possible that for some future task it might even be preferable in some cases, though not for what I’m working on now). Anyone out there have sample code they can share/point me to?
