OpenURL and Ringhio BACKRXMSG

Post by djrikki »

Hi,

I don't know which is to blame, perhaps its a limitation in OpenURL, but if I have OpenURL installed, when I click a URL specified in a Ringhio notification using the BACKRXMSG="URL:..." method launch-handler pops up, I would of expected OpenURL to intercept the call. And e.g. send the rexx command to my already open MUI-OWB window.

I will report this as well to whoever is responsible for the OpenURL effort as well.

PS. The aminet version is newer than the one on OS4Depot- how insane. Will AmigaOS4.2 come bundled with version 7.10? Hope so, perhaps a little reminder so it doesn't get missed. :)

Also I tell you what is missing, if I use BACKRXMSG="URL:...", the user doesn't get a hand mouse pointer. The hand mouse pointer is only present when CLOSEONDC is used WITHOUT BACKRXMSG.

It will also be great if the TEXT appeared Underlined if BACKRXMSG is in use.

Q. Is it possible to insert a line break into the TEXT of the notification? \n Didn't do anything.

If indeed there are escape codes specifically for Line Breaks and Underlining text in Ringhio it might be wise to include it in that documentation file so non-veteran AmigaOS users like myself can utilise them both right away with ease.

Thanks.

I think RingHio uses lauch-handler in preference to OpenURL whther it falls back to OpenURL if lauch-handler is not present I don't know.

OpenURL is not a system component (and not a contribution either unless I'm mistaken).

A quick test showed that the standard AmigaOS escape character for a newline doesn't work ie '*N' Ringhio seems to handle wordwraping itself.

OpenURL is obsolete. AmigaOS uses launch-handler which is built into the OS. There is also C:URLOpen available.
