2001-03-23 · New plugin for HTML-Kit: hkLaunchProg

hkLaunchProg version 1.0.0

Because HTML-Kit applies server mappings when running a program, some programs like Notepad cannot open the file when using Tools|Program... (Notepad cannot open a file with prefix http://)

For this reason, I wrote a small plugin to launch the external programs while ignoring server mappings.

The plugin uses the program list and the program configuration set up under Edit|Preferences|Programs, so there is no need to maintain more than one list of programs. You can assign keyboard shortcuts to the most commonly used actions (CTRL+F10, then assign shortcut to action under "Tools > Launch program".

The hkLaunchProg plugin resides in the Tools section of the action bar in HTML-Kit. There is a menu item for each of the programs in the program list.

Version 1.0.0 does not include DDE support, but in practice this does not limit the usefulness of the plugin.


Current version (jrn_hkLaunchProg_v100.zip, 11 KB)

(Please see the software licensing terms)

hkLaunchProg is distributed without Visual Basic 6.0 run-time library, which must be downloaded separately, e.g. from Microsoft. Chances are that you already have the library installed.
Upgrading from 0.9.0:
If you have the prelease version 0.9.0 installed, delete the executable jrn_hkLaunchProg_290WorkAround.exe from the plugins folder (typically C:\Program Files\Chami\HTML-Kit\Plugins\).

Try this software from rosenlundnielsen

You can use includeHTML e.g. to create effects similar to server side includes at the time of editing.
includeHTML can run either as a stand-alone GUI application, as a command line application, or as a HTML-Kit plugin

With Make-a-Filelist it takes just four easy steps to create a filename list, a table with image tags or another filebased listing or table. Make-a-Filelist can run stand-alone or as a HTML-Kit plugin.

hkFavorites makes it possible to manage desktop files in HTML-Kit, and adds Favorite Documents functionality to HTML-Kit.

CreateHKDesktop is a small utility for creating HTML-Kit Desktop files. Visual Basic source code is available for the curious ones.
