Hi,

I am using Oracle Forms 6i but it is not deployed on the web.
I need to call a URL in WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED event of the button.

From the docs of 6i, I get the below.

BEGIN
Web.Show_Document(‘http://www.abc.com’, ‘_self’);
END;

And for this, the Restriction is that this can only be used from within a form run from the Web and though i am using Form 6i but it is not at all deployed on the WEB so i

can't use this.

Please let me know if you have any other method of calling a URL in WHEN-BUTTON-PRESED event of the button. Kindly reply ASAP

Regards,
Amit Sharma

Use Host Built-in to open the IE or Netscape on the client machine and send the URL as parameter...

Cheers

Hi ram,

Can you please elaborate more on this-
The scenario is something like this-

on pressing button - i want to call say www.yahoo.com so i used-
Host('cmd'||'cd C:Program FilesInternet Explorer'||'IEXPLORE.EXE'||'http://www.yahoo.com');

But this simply invokes command prompt with the current working directory in which my Form is residing.

Kindly give the full method of invokong the command prompt and then Internet explorer/netscape with a parameter say 'www.yahoo.com'.

plz reply ASAP.

Regards,
Amit Sharma

Take out that first part:

Host('C:Program FilesInternet Explorer'||'IEXPLORE.EXE'||'http://www.yahoo.com');

You may also want to look into syncronous vs asyncronous also.
