Running application from web browser, code?BlitzPlus Forums/BlitzPlus Programming/Running application from web browser, code?
| What is the control or code to run an application from an icon click on a web page in a web browser? Currently I can only deliver the application as a zip file download. How do you get an application to run (as on andkon games) by clicking on the icon.|
Is it possible to avoid the expense of flash or install shield ($2000) by writing your own code? Is this asking for real valuable and secret information?
I would appriciate and code or info to start me on the right path.
| It's possible to embed an application, but it's difficult and there's not an enormous amount of point: the application won't be cross-platform if it's made with BlitzPlus, even if the browser is; and it will run much more slowly than if it was a standalone download.|
You're almost always better off using something that was actually designed to be used this way. Unity, Java, Flash, Monkey... depends what you want it to do, mainly.
Also, it doesn't cost anything to develop in Flash.
