    Default Network Share Zimlet: Launch Explorer Window

    Hi,

    I am trying to create a zimlet that allows the user to click on a network share url and have it open in a explorer window.

    URL Ex:
    \\machine\publicshare\somefolder

    I have created the part where the zimlet detects a network share url and displays a tooltip and uses javascript to display a message box when you click on the url. However I am stuck on figuring out how to cause explorer to open the location.

    I found some examples on how to open an external application using javascript, but these don't seem to work. In fact it seems to cause the zimlet to not function at all.

    Ex:
    var shell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.shell");
    shell.run("notepad.exe", 1, True);

    Is what I am trying to do even possible? If it is, any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    I just thought I would follow up and ask if anyone knows whether this is even possible?

    Thanks,

    It would seem no one knows if this is possible or not. In that case, is anyone else interested in this feature, or am I the only one who thinks this would be useful?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I'm interested, but I'm not sure how useful it will ultimately be for anyone outside our IT department.

    Yeah, it wouldn't be useful to anyone outside of the internal network. However we have a public data share that we access alot, so it would be really nice to have this feature.

    I wrote a zimlet that recognizes the URLs, now I just need to figure out how to get Zimbra/WebBrowser to open the URL in an Explorer window.
