Directly Open a Link in browser field

Is there a way to open any link in the browser field without opening the menu and clicking "Get Link" ? I have noticed that this does not happen when clicking on a HTML button.


This post is in the right forum  Smiley Happy !


Thank you

Re: Directly Open a Link in browser field

I think you would have better luck posting your question in the Java forum on how to accomplish this task.  Most questions here will be around the HTML content itself and not Java coding using the Java API's for BrowserField.
