Open External File (not a simulation)

Recommended Posts

Hi All


This has probably never really come up for most of you, but is there a way of using a button to open an external file (like a PDF)? I just want the system to open a reference document from within a simulation. It's ok (actually preferable) for the file to open outside Simio; it just makes for a good contact to relevant supporting information.


Thanks

Define an event named ShowFile.

Place a button that triggers that event.

Create a process that is triggered by the ShowFile event.

In that process you would have a custom step which would have some user code that displays the appropriate file.

See the help and perhaps the API forum for directions on how to create a custom step.


The code and dll for that custom step would be a welcome submission to the Shared Items user forum.
