HTMLViewer, drag and drop, and html alias file
Date: 02.08.06 08:00 (Wed, 02 Aug 2006 09:00:42 +0200)
From: Emile Schwarz

REALbasic 2006 Release 3 Commercial Professional Edition
Mac OS X 10.4.7

Just for the fun (and it appears useful), I added drag and drop
functionality to a HTMLViewer Control. It worked fine until I get tired
to open / close some folders to drag some html files.

I decided to create an alias to one main html from folder #2 in its
parent folder. I tested it and get in trouble: the window is white!

I added a MsgBox to report the FolderItem URLPath (what I use) _AND_ the
AbsolutePath (as a check), run the project and drop an alias (to a valid
html file) twice: once from the parent directory, the second time from
the directory where the original lives.

Same results: the alias is not resolved. I get the alias pathname, not
the pathname to the original file.

I do not think that this is an intended behavior, but after so many
years I work with a computer, I already things like that: an old
technology that takes time (by their developer) to come in the
application (both OS: Mac OS X and Windows, I don't remember for Linux).

Thanks for your input,
