My World 3 for Windows TM
Running files in other programs
My World has a Run
command which will start another program on your computer and run a specified file.
To do this, you need to include an MWB file in your screen.
Two examples are given below:
This runs a file stored in the current My World screen directory
would run a file stored in the Shared directory).
This runs a file stored elsewhere on your computer or network.
Notes for screen designers:
- You must supply a full pathname for an external file, though this can include My World variables such as FILEBOOK$.
would run a file saved in the same directory as the My World file.
- This command will only work with filetypes associated with programs already installed on the computer or network.
