Try this:

  put url tURL into tSource -- the source text
  set the htmlText of fld "HTMLText" to tSource -- LC's display

LC only supports a subset of HTML, so when you put the source into a field, only the supported parts go in. But you can grab the unadultered source first.

Thanks for getting back to me on this.

The htmltext is the page source code. So

put the htmltext of widget "browser" into field 1

I thought it was the source code originally too,
but it doesn’t work correctly.

For example:

set the HTMLText of field "HTMLTextField1" to URL field "WebAddressField1" of 
this card
(Where field "WebAddressField1" of this card = http://www.duckduckgo.com 
<http://www.duckduckgo.com/> )

Look at the output in field HTMLTextField1.

Then go to the website with Safari with the Developer Menu turned on,
and use the pull down menu option for “Show Page Source”.

You will see there is a vast difference between what Safari shows
versus what LiveCode HTMLText shows.  (It’s less than useful!)

Your thoughts?

Thanks,

Rick

I am able to load the browser widget with a URL

I can get the HTMLtext of the page I have browsed to just fine.
What I have yet to do is to get the page source code of the page
I have browsed to in LiveCode into a field.

The htmltext is the page source code. So

put the htmltext of widget "browser" into field 1

If you don't mean the htmltext but the *generated* htmltext then you
have to use JavaScript (see for example the firefox developer tools).

This stack shows also one way how to implement "history" for the widget
