Loading file from webserver

Post by lstosik » 04 Nov 2013, 19:43

I am trying to load DWG file to ABViewer. After sending:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<cadsofttools version="1">
    <!-- Load file -->
  <load file=""/>
I get an error message:

Code: Select all

<cadsofttools version="1">
  <error message="File is not found:"/>
There is no attempt to connect server at all. Using FileName param with ActiveX object like in http://www.cadsofttools.com/forum/viewt ... =16&t=1961 also doesn't load the file. Is this supported at all or does ABViewer/CADViewX only work with local files?

The current ABViewer version doesn't support loading files from web server via XML API, however, it's possible to load such files using ABViewer menu (File -> Open...).

The possibility to load files from web server via XML API will be added in the next release of ABViewer.
