Re: Pop up's in the Browser Widget

Thank you all for your help. Using BINFILE was exactly what I needed. I wrote a little VBScript to automatically convert the xls to csv and then load it up in the Livecode program. I appreciate yall's insight and knowledge, boss man was very pleased with the final product.

Re: Pop up's in the Browser Widget

Those resources will definitely be helpful, thank you. I apologize for continuing to ask questions. The "get" command, near as I can tell, gets the contents of a file. So when used like "get URL pUrl" to retrieve an excel spreadsheet from the website it returns a jumbled, un-formatted Excel spreadsh...

Re: Pop up's in the Browser Widget

The issue I am now encountering is that the file I am "getting" is an Excel spreadsheet. Livecode obviously doesn't like excel directly imported, it must be a csv Excel file. I am having trouble getting the file directly from the address (with "get") and getting it into a format I can work with with...

Re: Pop up's in the Browser Widget

As of right now, I don't have direct access to the static URL of the file. When I hit the download button in the browser, through clicking or code, it opens another window that has a temporary URL that redirects to the actual location of the file. Until I get access to the direct address, which I am...

Re: Pop up's in the Browser Widget

You are certainly right that most users would not want that. However, I am writing a very specific program for my boss's use only in which he has outlined certain functionality that he wishes to see. Among those functionalities is for the program to download and save the file without his having to s...

Re: Pop up's in the Browser Widget

I believe I found a solution to the previous issue - but another has arisen. I used browserNewUrlWindow pUrl to get the url of the new window and then set the url of the current browser to that one. This downloads the file, but now I am having trouble automatically saving the file that it downloads ...

Pop up's in the Browser Widget

Hello, I am using the internet browser widget to load a web page. There is a link on the web page that, when clicked in a normal browser, opens another internet window and the file is automatically downloaded from a temp folder on the website. Pop up's must be enabled in the browser (Chrome) for the...
