How to open a html-file by the default browser (in VB of course...)
[Originally posted by JPicasso]
Put this under a button or click event
dim lreturn as long
lreturn = ShellExecute(0&, "Open", "www.myaddress.com", "", vbNullString, 1)
if lreturn is 0 then there's a problem.
put this in a module.
Public Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
I stripped this out of the hyperlink control found on this site.ÿ Their control let you put graphics or text on a form to display the link.
I just needed it under a command button.
Hope this helps
