Window opens with Web Page Dialog

rtgartman This was working and I haven't changed anything. I select the window to open like a pop up using inc_global.js

strURL = 'workoutecalc.htm';
nRet = window.showModalDialog(strURL,window.parent.global,'scroll:no;help:no;center:yes;status:no;unadorned:no;resizable:yes;dialogWidth:675px;dialogHeight:550px');

The page used to open up but now only the window opens and it is blank. no content in the windo

Just a white screen

top of window says web page dialog

The program is acting like the popup windoow won't compile right.

It works great before complilation. It used to work after compilation

any suggestions?

Alaska RT -

 When you add files to your project, they become compressed within the ebook.

 When a reader opens the compiled ebook, it decompresses the content into an encrypted format in a temporary directory.  

 Thus, your Modal Dialog Box is trying to read an encrypted file; because it is it's own window, it isn't getting the file decrypted first.

 As far as solutions go, I'm not sure if one can write to a Modal dialog on the fly, like you can for other windows; the only sure way I know of is to call an html page into your MDB from outside of the ebook.

 I may be incorrect here, but I intend to work with it later and try some ideas....

rtgartman Just FYI for everybody -

You can run the script like I had it. Security was set on high in the html category. Considering I have no print or copy and the main formulas used in the program are .js and are not viewable - I am pretty safe for what I am publishing.
