browse questions?

 [1/2] from: bry:itnisk at: 23-Jul-2003 14:39

First off I seem to remember it was possible to set from rebol what the default browser for a protocol was. Is this still possible, if so how does one do it. Second of all doing help on browse returns the following: USAGE: BROWSE value /only DESCRIPTION: Opens the default web browser. BROWSE is a native value. ARGUMENTS: value -- The URL to open (Type: any-string) REFINEMENTS: /only -- Don't open a new window if possible which no matter what I do seems to open a new window, in other words the /only refinement doesn't seem to be working, am using REBOL/View (actually I don't think that's right, I bought a later version of Pro and installed it but it never updated my version number.)

Yep, the /only refinement is not guaranteed to reuse browser windows. I think differences in windows api across different windows versions makes this difficult. (Just guessing/remembering.) With regards to your Rebol/View version number; do you mean that you bought a license (and put the license.key file in your view-root directory), but that did not change the version number ? That's normal. When you do this, rebol/view starts up with the additional text: Licensed to: Anton Rolls <[me--somewhere--com]> License ID: x-xxxxx-xxx Anyway, I don't think newer betas of rebol/view have any differences in the (mis-)function of browse/only. That will have to be fixed one day. Anton.
