HTML buttons

editor I wish to hide the standard toolbar and have buttons located in my HTML pages instead. I have successfully created links that perform functions like back, forward, refresh, etc., but I have had problems setting up standard HTML buttons. For example...

Link: <a href="##FORWARD()">Forward</a> works fine.

Button: <input type="button" value="Forward" onclick="location.href='##FORWARD()'"> also seems to work.


Link: <a href="##OPEN('{app}\subfolder\program.exe')">Launch Program</a> works fine.

Button: <input type="button" value="Launch Program" onclick="##OPEN('{app}\subfolder\program.exe')"> generates a script error on load and does not work.

Two questions:

How do I properly code a button that uses ##OPEN?

Are there other ways to code buttons like my "Forward" example above that are better than the way I did it?

Thanks for your help.

Bradley I'm not sure if I am helping you, but What I do is

<a href="next_page_name.htm">Next Page</a>
<a href="previous_page_name.htm">Previous Page</a>
Looks like:
Previous Page - Next Page

Storyman Hi Bradley,

Your suggestion certainly will work. If you have a lot of pages in your ebook you'll save a lot of time by using Activ's script. By using Activ's script you can have the 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons move to the appropriate file in Activ's file line-up.
