    Re: E-MAIL BUTTON

    Eric - Colin was refering to the following:

    "Not sure what would happen if several browsers (like I have IE plus NS on my notebook)"

    .... "It'll use the system's default browser. Basically whatever is associated with .htm or .html files."

    Thank you guys, I also used first %SrcDir% mailto: which confused me.
    but just mailto works fine.

    It'll use the system's default browser. Basically whatever is associated with .htm or .html files.

    I tried to edit my post two times but it would not work ;-(

    Found just putting the URL in worked ok, and pulls up IE which is the only browser on this machine. Not sure what would happen if several browsers (like I have IE plus NS on my notebook). Guess I'll have to burn an interim CD and go test it out :-)

    Tnx.

    just a thought I had about default viewers .. altho it *may not* be quite the same with html ...

    Sometimes, a program unsuitable for a particular file type maybe reg as the default program to open it (as apposed to viewer) ie:

    UltraEdit-32 opens a lot of text based file types (configuration permitting), but would not be good in some cases. Just something to keep in mind.

    Re: E-MAIL BUTTON

    Searching takes too long, I like to use the FILE > GET DEFAULT VIEWER to figure out their default .html viewer and then use a FILE > EXECUTE to launch that viewer...

    Re: E-MAIL BUTTON

    Tnx, but it is asking me for a Document Name. How to get this to open ANY kind of Web Browser since I will not know exactly where it is located on their hard drive???

    Use the same action ("File - Open") and put the URL in the "File to open" field, e.g. http://www.indigorose.com

    Re: E-MAIL BUTTON

    I use: mailto:myaddress.com?SUBJECT=Some Subject Text

    That way, i can filter/parse out the incoming e-mails to a separate action folder if desired.

    At first I used %SrcDir% & the mailto: but that didn't work ;-(
    Decided it was supposed to be ONLY the mailto: thing :-)

    HOWEVER...what similar nifty trick might you have to open an IE web browser with a predefined URL in it???

    Tnx.

    HI - dont use the browser object.

    Use File.Open and in the filename field:

    mailto:whomever

    started a topic E-MAIL BUTTON

    E-MAIL BUTTON

    It must be easier way to create an E-Mail Button , what I am doing is first create a web browser object with mailto command,then hide it on page show.And on the Button mouse click action show(object web browser) then sleep for 1 second, otherwise it does not open outlook,then webbrowser object "nawigate to" mailto+email adress.

    It works but I end up with 2X Outlook Express send mail windows.

    Is there any other way?????
Working...
