Open URL in browser

Post by skyphoenix » Thu Oct 20, 2016 12:25 pm

Is there an action that can open a URL in the currently used browser or explicitly in firefox?
Does this needed to be implemented in user code or can this be easily added as action to a modul?
If not how would user code look like?

Best wishes!

You can use Invoke Action Navigate command to open a link in existing browser window. It can be added both to Recording module or user code. For more details about exact implementation, see for example this post: ... tml#p30291
