Open URL Action

Definition: The Open URL action opens the address provided as a parameter. The address specified in the text field of the Open URL command can identify a web address or a local file address, which will open in a browser when the action gets executed. If no browser is running, the system will open the default Web browser.

When you use the Open URL action in an applet, please make sure your browser does not block pop up windows. If your browser is set up to block them, then you will not get the new windows that are supposed to be opened with Open URL.

Parameters: URL
Example: In the Grotesque City project, created by high school students for a Language Arts class, the character navigates around a city and opens the appropriate web pages when he encounters buildings that have stories associated with them (the space bar needs to be pressed).
