load HTML file in a script

mikey186mikey186 Posts: 84

I was looking in the example file for "Simple Text Browser Dialog", and I noticed at the end of the script, it's loading a HTML file from inside the DAZ Studio application folder. What if I want to open up a HTML within a script file. For instance, I have a DAZ script file and a simple HTML file in the same folder within my Library. 

at the very end, I found this script section where it's loading the file.

( String("%1/DAZ Studio").arg( App.getDocumentationPath() ), "what_is_studio.htm" );

What I am trying to do is to load the HTML file from the same folder where my DSA script file is. I tried this code to no avail.

( String("/Scripts").arg( App.getAbsoluteScriptPath() ), "MY_HTML_FILE.html" );

Any idea of a way to point the script to load the HTML file within my script folder?

    Have you looked at http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/software/dazstudio/4/referenceguide/scripting/api_reference/samples/general_ui/display_document_dynamic/start ?

    I did, but I wanted it to open in a typical browser in DAZ, not in a other browser. 

    I tried using this code and ended up a parse error

    You have an error on the last line. It should be

    })(App.showURL( String("%1/tes2t.htm").arg( g_sSCRIPT_LOCATION ) ));

    to resolve the error, but that still won't do what you want.

    You don't want to call App.showURL here, and g_sSCRIPT_LOCATION is not accessable here either.
