Hello everybody,

I want to developp a intern tool for my compagny. Thos tool is a web
page in HTML and I have a problem with because I'm not able to open a
document writer
Open Office ( or a winword document) with write access. The link :

<a href="file://X:\temp\sboucha rd\cookie\pytho nDOc.odt">lien</a>

open my document in a browser and I don't have the write access. It is
possible to open my document in the application associcated.
In my case, I want that it's Openoffice open my file.

Do you konw the property of <a href> that I supposed to use or the
method to realize this??

Do you have a alternate method to accomplish this??

Enven if the solution is not in html, I'm open to..
thanks

Open Office ( or a winword document) with write access. The link :

<a href="file://X:\temp\sboucha rd\cookie\pytho nDOc.odt">lien</a>
is not Valid. The value of the `href' attribute must be an URI.

<URL:http://validator.w3.or g/>
open my document in a browser
That is done by a plugin for the browser and not supported natively.
and I don't have the write access.
Apparently it is a _viewer_ plugin.

So you have to configure the target machine's browser this way.

There is none, of course.
Do you have a alternate method to accomplish this??
You will have to script the plugin, if it provides an API, or OpenOffice
itself instead. Since you appear to work with Microsoft Windows, there
is the possibility of using a COM object provided by OpenOffice. See the
OO documentation for further information.
Enven if the solution is not in html, I'm open to..


This is a newsgroup dealing with ECMAScript implementations , such a
Netscape JavaScript, not HTML (primarily).

In my web application I provide the user with a popup window to a rich text document by calling window.open(). My problem is that the title of the open window is something like http://localhost:8080/app/images/232334.rtf. Is it possible to set this title to something different. As Im loading what is basically a word document instead of a html document I can't set it in the page. Thanks Clive

Hi, I am trying to pop-up a window when the user clicks on an image. The problem is that when the user clicks on the image and the window pops up OK, but the window underneath also proceeds to the image. The desired behavior is that when the pop-up is invoked, I want the underlying window to stay put. I don't have this problem when I run the code on my local computer but I do have it when I run the code on geocities.
