Hi,

is there any way to start any external program (client side), any batch (client side) etc. from an uniGUI-App?

An example could be to start an application like Teamiewer.

Best regards,

Bernd

Yes,

I use this to start Phone call on mobile device or send Email :

uniLabel.ClientEvents.ExtEvents

function click(sender, eOpts)
{
 window.location='tel:0444888123456';
}

 

or 

uniLabel.ClientEvents.ExtEvents

function click(sender, eOpts)
{
 window.location= 'mailto:mymail@yahoo.com'
}

You can only run protocol commands that the browser is able to interpret, 
like http/s: and ftp:, or desktop protocol handlers like mailto: and tel:
as mentioned above, providing the handlers are set up.

This means you can also do a CORS call to a local web server,
which then starts a program on the local machine.

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a standard that allows
 server to relax the same-origin policy. This is used to explicitly allow
some cross-origin requests while rejecting others.

The webserver has to be installed on the local computer,
of course, and configured to respond to the call. You can
use Indy HTTP Server to create this webserver.

Hi,

Thanks everyone for the quick response.
I will think about how I will implement it. It was important for me to know whether there might be a direct route. This does not seem to be possible.

Best regards
