Building an html application using only about:blank

13 posts in this topic

Put this together so far and though others might be interested.

Basically its similar to using autoit as a server-side language and outputting the html to the browser.

There are no html files created or needed, everything is done using about:blank, frames, autoit and javascript.

The key is the hidden text field <input id=""myevent"" type=hidden> in the menu frame which acts as a seudo-browser address bar and returns events to autoit

This example is viewing data from any msaccess db from your hard drive and includes paging etc...i haven't finished with the edit functions....

Cool, Good start. Lays out any access db nicely... Any plans to add create db and write to db?

:) thanx

Feels a bit like cheating using IE, but i find it makes development faster using the flexability IE offers in creating (html) controls on the fly.

Because its a generic example, there would be lots of error checking and data validation code required to cover all possible data type scenarios when adding/deleting and editing db data. I've added checks for date type fields and string type id's.

Its much easier to write the code when you know what the fields and data types of a database will be rather than try cover every scenario, so for that reason, probably not for this example but willing to lend a hand if anyone decides to use a similar setup.

edit: click the records id hyper-link to the beginning of edit db fields

Very nice! I'd love to see more examples like this.

I'll see if i can put together an event-calander type application using something like this one http://asp-time.com/

That might cover a few areas including using calendar control as a complete working script.

Nice approach, this is simular to creating an HTA application isn't it ?

An HTML Application (HTA) is a Microsoft Windows application written with HTML and Dynamic HTML. The ability to write HTAs was introduced with Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0.

HTAs can be made from regular HTML files by simply changing the file extension to .hta. An HTA runs as a fully trusted application and therefore has more privileges than a regular HTML file, which is confined to the security model of the web browser.

Source : Wikipedia

HTA Apps

Also look for the - hta_helpomatic.hta.

This will generate the HTML code automatically.

No, its not imo.

HTA's equate to not much more than allow running vbscript/javascript using msie with no security restrictions.

There's not a whole lot of use for them apart from the security loop hole they represent to hackers.

They also don't offer a viable way of distribution because source code is freely available via any text editor and most good AV's will alert the user that hta files are a security threat.

In any case a HTA file needs to be physically located on the hard drive.

Using the method per my example no files are created OR extracted to the users HD.

The html scouce code is generated by the autoit scripting and outputted to the browser's "about:blank" DOM where its available for manipulation and resides in memory(i presume). _IE.au3/autoit takes care of the security alerts.

The only physical files in this example are the database and autoit.

Cool start.. was erroring out for me and found line 147 was shy on double quote added as seen here and viola! works...

The autoit code tags didn't display the & nbsp ; but instead replaced & nbsp ; (spaces added so it displays, remove spaces from actual script) with a single quote".

Line 147 should read:,

Out("<button name=""cut"" title=""Cut"" class=button unselectable=""on"" onclick=""parent.document.frames['Main'].document.selection.createRange().execCommand(this.name);""><font face=Wingdings>& quot;</font></button>")

cheers

edit...that button should read <font face=Wingdings>& quot;</font></button> ; not & nbsp ;

I've played with this a little bit before. Nice job on the look of the output.
