Altova Authentic 2024 Browser Edition

This is an example HTML page with an embedded JavaScript. The sample requires the Authentic Browser Plug-in (CAB file) to be installed on your computer. 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.


The code shows:


How to access the browser plug-in. Modify the code to refer to your CAB file and the class identifier (CLSID) of your browser plug-in version (trusted or untrusted).

How to load a file into the browser plug-in. Modify the code to refer to your sample document.

Implement buttons for simple cursor positioning.

Implement more complex commands like the sorting of tables.

How to use the SelectionChanged event.


Also see The OBJECT Element for details.
