Hi all,

I want to launch the default system browser by clicking on a label or a
button. The browser should open the text representation of the label.

I tried the SWT browser from the package org.eclipse.swt.browser , but I
have to provide a download possibility inside html pages, therefor this
functionality doesn't exists.

Many thanks for some hints,
Andreas N.

Hi,
I've seen your previous post about download. Can you describe what's the
problem with the download use case and the Browser widget?

Well, maybe they want to do what I want to do, and therefore I'll just
sneakily hijack this thread :) - it sounds similar!

What I'd like to do is to browse using a Browser and then manually
download a file from a webserver when a "special" link tag is detected via
a LocationListener.

I would like to use the Browser class to do this download because it will
definitely be configured correctly (have the correct proxy settings,
cookies, etc. from IE) for the current session - I'm guessing
URLConnection will just try to open a raw socket.
