SyteLine – Open file or folder out of form

If you want to open up any type of URL, you can use the Goto URL  form event. An example setup is depicted below. It can be used for at least the following:

  • Local internet path preceeding with a double backslash \\
  • Local system paths, as depicted in the example below
  • Files when they have an application connected to open them. Word files, powerpoint files and pdf work without any problems.

What’s not working is linking bookmarks or similar in word files or pdf documents. Thus, the ending of the path must be recognizable by SyteLine. A path like C:\testdocument.docx#mybookmark  is not opening up with the error message, that the filetype is unknown.
