Hello

I have an application where I open RAP editors containing a browser with certain URL.
Now I would like to provide a handler which adds the current URL to the browsers bookmakrs/favorits.
I only want to provide this function for IE.

This is what I came up with:

String script = "window.external.AddFavorite(\"" + url + "\", \"" + label + "\");";
org.eclipse.rwt.internal.widgets.JSExecutor.executeJS(script);


If I execute this nothing happens, no warning, exception or anything.

Executing javascript else works, for example I have this zoom function:

String script = "if(window.parent.document.body.style.zoom!=0) window.parent.document.body.style.zoom*=0.8; else window.parent.document.body.style.zoom=0.8;";
org.eclipse.rwt.internal.widgets.JSExecutor.executeJS(script);


I also tested the plain "window.external.AddFavorite..." outside of RAP, which also works, Favorit Dialog is opened.

Any idea on how I can solve this? Am I executing the script wrong?

greets and thanks for any help
Flavio

Hi.

My guess is this:

"For security reasons, the AddFavorite method must be called as a
response to a user-initiated action, such a mouse click. If called from
a different context, such as the onload event of the body element, the
AddFavorite method fails silently." [1]

There are may ways to work around this. For example you could use a
Browser widget to create a button or link that does this on the client.
(The button would probably not look like other RAP buttons.) Other ways
would be to use ClientScripting, the MARKUP_ENABLED feature or a custom
widget.

Greetings,
Tim

Hi Tim

Thanks for your reply, since I'm still using RAP 1.4.2 I ended up using the Browser widget.

Thank you very much for your help!
