Altova Authentic 2024 Browser Edition

The HTML code below generates a page that has the following features:


It checks what browser is installed on the client (Internet Explorer, Firefox) and installs an Authentic Browser version for the detected browser type.

Furthermore, if the installed browser is Internet Explorer, then it checks whether the system is 32-bit or 64-bit, and then selects the correct .CAB file (for 32-bit or 64-bit Internet Explorer).

The Authentic Browser window within the page has a width that is 100% that of the browser window and 60% of its height.

Below the Authentic Browser window is a row of five buttons

The Start Editing button loads the Authentic View of OrgChart.xml, which is in the root directory of your server

The Find and Replace buttons pop up the Find and Replace dialogs respectively

The Save button saves changes to a file called SaveFile_OrgChart.xml located in the root directory of the server

The Test property button tests a simple property


When this HTML page is opened on the client, the user can start editing the XML file OrgChart.xml and save the edited file as SaveFile_OrgChart.xml.


You may wish to use this simple HTML page to test whether Authentic Browser functions properly. If you do so, be sure to use the IP Address and the correct path to the respective files in the URLs that locate the the XPI file, the xsd, xml, and sps files, and any other resource on the server. Note that case-sensitivity might be an issue with some servers, so if there is a problem locating a file, check the casing of filenames and of commands in the code. You can expand or modify this example to build more complex solutions using Authentic Browser.
