    Web Application

    Hello Forum:

    I am developing a web application that fires from a link on my website. The link instructs the application to open in a window (window.open()) with all of the tool bars turned off, etc. My question is: is there a way to place this link on a desktop so that it will run without having to first open the browser and click on a link. I want to run this web app without having to first run the browser (the app will run the browser, but I need all the tool-bars, etc. turned off). I hope that makes sense. Thanks.

    Question hta's ?

    hi shawn,
    is it possible for you to use hta's (hypertext applications) to launch your application?
    this will restrict it's use to internet explorer on windows, but will allow you to completely remove the titlebar and browser chrome, allowing you to implement your own (javascript:window.close() will close the window).

    If hta's are possible, simply modify and distribute this code as necessary (save as something.hta)

    <html>
    <HEAD>
    <TITLE>My Test Application</TITLE>
    <HTA:APPLICATION ID="oMyApp"
    APPLICATIONNAME="MyApp"
    BORDER="none"
    CAPTION="no"
    ICON="http://www.mywebsite.com/path/to/ico.ico"
    SHOWINTASKBAR="yes"
    SINGLEINSTANCE="yes"
    SYSMENU="yes"
    WINDOWSTATE="normal">
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5;URL=http://www.google.com">
    </HEAD>
    </html>
