Have a Gen application with Windows-GUI 'C' Clients and now have a request to open a specific URL website within the default installed Browser (Chrome) from this Gen application. How can this be accomplished?
Release : 8.6
Component : CA Gen Run Time, GUI
1. Users could use the 'Launch' function to start/launch a URL from within a GUI application. For example to launch an application (such as the Gen Support Portal) from Chrome, the command within Gen 8.6 on the Windows Toolset would be:
Function Launch ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" support.broadcom.com")
(To add this statement, select the 'Functions' statement and then select 'Launch' from the list of functions and enter the launch string, in the example case: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" support.broadcom.com")
2. Gen also offers the 'Call External' command for calling a web service, reference the following links.

3. A third option would be to call/launch an URL website via an External Action Block (EAB) or using the Gen Inline Code feature.
