Dear All,

I am using Forms 6i.

My requirement is, when I click the "pushbutton", It should open Internet explorer and open a specific site say for example www.yahoo.com

How to achieve this? what code I have to write in WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED Trigger?

Before writing this, I searched various options like "hyperlink", "href" etc.. but I did not get required details.

Can anyone suggest please?

it's in the help file under web.show_document
/*

** Built-in:  WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT 
** Example:   Display the specified URL in the target window. 
*/ 
BEGIN 
  Web.Show_Document(‘http://www.yahoo.com’, ‘_self’); 
END;

Mr.Martin,

Thank you for your solution.
As I mentioned, I am using Forms version 6i. I think web.show_document may not work. However, I solved this problem using "Host" command.

Thank you once again.

Dear All,

I still yet find 100% solution. When I issue command, say for example Host('Iexplore www.google.com');, it is working fine but unless I close the browser, I am unable to open my other forms/reports attached in the menu (it is disabled).

Is there any other alternate I can do? ie. to minimize the browser and continue to execute other options in the menu.

Have you read the documentation on the 'host' command in the reference manual?

Have you played with 'no_prompt' and 'no_screen'?
