The OPEN WEB URL command can be used to connect to an external web URL using your computer's default web browser. It will also allow you to create e-mail messages using your default e-mail client, connect to ftp sites and even open html-based help pages on your local computer. This technical note discusses how to implement each of these solutions.

Note: To use this command you must have the appropriate applications installed and set as the default application for the URL type. For example to connect to a http URL you must have a web browser installed and configured as the default web browser. For a mailto link you will need an e-mail client, and so on.

You can have more than one application of the same type installed but 4D will only use the default application.
