I'm trying to send some local html to the browser widget to display a local loading GIF until the page "comes down" from the cloud. This needs to work on mobile too.
the directory structure main app folder /assets /img /global-icons ajax_loader_big.gif" /info web-loading.html views view_Browser.livecode # Card 1 has the browser widget… I have this in the preopenstack handler setWebURL command setWebURL put path_Assets() & "info/web-loading.html" into tLocalPath put url ("binfile://" & tLocalPath) into tLoader put path_Assets() & "img/global-icons/ajax_loader_big.gif" into imgPath replace "##IMAGE-PATH##" with imgPath in tLoader set the htmlText of widget "body" to tLoader # html is set, but img not found put tLoader # let's see what we are getting.. end setWebURL path_Assets() function returns the specialFolderPath("resources") & "assets/" it is working for the html itself, but inside html both of these fail # full URL from "root" which would translate correctly on mobile to the app package… <img src="/Users/Brahmanathaswami/Documents/_Siva-Siva-App/assets/img/global-icons/ajax_loader_big.gif" width="128" height="128" alt="ajax_loader_big"> # I manually tried a relative path <div class="container"> <img src="../assets/img/global-icons/ajax_loader_big.gif" width="128" height="128" alt="ajax_loader_big"> </div> The html is found because we see in the browser widget the broken image icon with the name "ajax_loader_big" so the path function works, html is set as expected, but the browser widget can't find the image locally. I can "proof" this locally by moving a copy of web-loading.html into the same folder as the stack.. drag and drop onto a browser from that location, which is the same location as the stack with the browser widget… both of these work src="/Users/Brahmanathaswami/Documents/_Siva-Siva-App/assets/img/global-icons/ajax_loader_big.gif" src="../assets/img/global-icons/ajax_loader_big.gif" I could have sworn I had this working last year, but not today. At that time we were working right in the same directory… so I tried this: views /img ajax_loader_big.gif view_Browser.livecode web-loading.html src="img/ajax_loader_big.gif" in the html for the browser widget but it still can't find it What am I missing? Why can't the browser widget find the image?
