Showing Local URLs in Browser [message #911377] Tue, 11 September 2012 13:26 Go to next message

Hi everyone!

Two really short questions:

First off I can't find any documentation stating why
		Browser browser = new Browser(parent, SWT.NONE);
		browser.setUrl("file:///C:/index.html"); // returns true

won't work. I know it seems silly, but I am creating a help system and it would be nice to have access to local HTML files for development. Does anyone know something?

Secondly I have a general problem with accessing files inside plug-ins. I have a dedicated RAP plug-in with the Eclipse Help data. I am able to access these files with the bundle and read them with a InputStream, but advanced functions (like HTML anchors and pictures) of course won't work that way. Is there any way to access these files by URL?

Thanks in advance,

S. Schulz

You can read this FAQ to register your local resource.

http://wiki.eclipse.org/RAP/FAQ#How_to_register_a_file.2Ffolder_as_resource.3F

Put the folder, say "help", inside a bundle, then register it as a resource. Then you can use the browser widgit and create the URL in this format:

"http://{0}:{1}/help/index.html";


while

{0} = RWT.getRequest().getServerName()
{1} = String.valueOf(RWT.getRequest().getServerPort()

HTH,
Ronald
