View Full Version : Green Screen PFkey to call a URL/Website

If they are willing to hit a function key, I'm guessing they would be willing to click on a link too. Put a URL on the green screen and enable URL hotspots. In Client Access, edit/preferences/hotspots. Chris

Call a CL that uses the STRPCO, and STRPCCMD commands. Dave

Dave, I already started down this path. I've had to build the URL on the fly (ex:) http://agency.oxfordlife.com/agentinfo1.asp?agtid=12345&thisComp=OXLI) and tried passing this to via STRPCCMD (ex:) strpccmd pccmd('http://agency.oxfordlife.com/agentinfo1 .asp?agtid=12345&thisComp=OXLI') pause(*no) but nothing happens. Any ideas?? Thanx!!

Chris, I prototyped your suggestion with both the URL to the website homepage (http://agency/oxfordlife.com) and to the full URL (http://agency.oxfordlife.com/agentinfo1.asp?agtid=12345&thisComp=OXLI). The latter is *messy*. While exploring that I came across macro/scripting. I don't know ANYTHING about it... any ideas?!?! Thanx!

Your PC command has to be to start a browser, with the URL as a parameter. Dave

strpccmd pccmd('Start http://agency.oxfordlife.com/agentinfo1.asp"?agtid=12345&thisComp=OXLI"') pause(*no) Notice I added START and put double quotes around the query string (likely needed if you have funny characters like & in the URL). And don't go over 123 characters! Chris

Our users would like a PF key in their green screen app that would call a URL/website. Any ideas?!?!? Is it even possible???

Here's a better, and more secure, approach that you might want to consider. And it's quite a bit easier to use and more flexible. http://www.turbogorilla-software.com
