Open Windows Explorer from Lightswitch html client application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Can we open windows explorer from a Lightswith HTML application?

    For example:

    There is a field called 'FileLocation' where users will enter the physical location of a particular file on a shared server. Is there any way where the user can just click on a hyperlink in the details screen and that will take them directly to the folder in the server on Windows Explorer?

    I appreciate all the help I can get on this!!

  • HI FCBVille,

    According to my experience, I create Lightswitch application to upload photos before, it pops up a Windows Explorer dialog to choose photos, not hyperlink. Here is a similar scenario, see: Building an HTML Client for a LightSwitch

    Hope it helps,
