Is there way for Hype to initiate the opening of external documents such as Excel files?
If I’m understanding correctly you want to have a button or link open up a document from server?
If so see image blow
- click your element (text, button, image,ect…)
- click on actions inspector
- click action drop down and select “Go to URL”
- in url text area provide link to file on your server.
Thank you for that reply. I am interested in this issue as well. I managed to link a pdf to a button in hype. Works fine.
Now I want to place the entire site with all resources to a different computer and have it work there as well.
I did not find out how to update all the links to the pdf files which in my case look like localhost/user/…
On any other computer they are not valid anymore.
If you drag your file into your resources library, you can access them by using the following URL in the ‘Go to URL’ area:
Hope that helps!
Thanks chaps, I’ve got Hype to open the folder containing the document, is there a way to get Hype to actually open it or ask to open it in the way an interactive PDF does?
