Is there a Built-in Feature to preview PDF in an LC-made explorer

Post by teriibi » Tue Nov 21, 2017 8:38 pm

HI Everyone,

question :
Is there some existing feature in LC that can allow me rapid browsing of PDF files (medium Icon look-alike) in a folder ?

The idea behid is to build me MY OWN PDF BROWSER APP under LC to organize many PDF on a hardrive into folders.
HAve buttons to esaly move/copy/delete the displayed PDF from a Gerenal Folder to each specific "PDF Matter! folders after viewing its content, but without opening another one of the many PDF reader.

It would require some kind of small text/content viewer of each PDF file without opening it.

Any sugestiosn welcomed.
Tks
:lol:

Hm, It didn't open any pdf (tried many from my programming library) here Richmond, although from the code, it certainly looks like it should have.

Linux OS, Lc 8.1.6.

The Browser widget does NOT function on Linux as far as I know.

The Tools.rev stack does NOT contain the Browser widget on Linux (just had a look at 8.1.7).

However, it did allow 8.1.7 to scr*w up quite badly on Xubuntu 17.10, with a Window saying "something" (I kid you not) when I tried to exit/quit the IDE; and it did much the same in 8.1.6.

That would certainly explain it, and is good to know.
