[mapguide-users] Opening an image in an image editor

Hi Marc,

It kind of depends on what language you are writing in as to how you are going to end up writing the code but essentially, assuming you are using .NET in IE.  You need to create a javascript function in your aspx page that opens a new shell which opens the application associated with that file type on the users machine.  The software you want to use would have to be installed and associated for this to work.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Subject: [mapguide-users] Opening an image in an image editor

  I'm currently building an internal GIS site for my company and have hit a
wall in my construction.  I have several aerial indexes, in .SHP files, that
display points you can click on to display an aerial for that designated
area.  When I click on one of the points, it tries opening the image in the
browser.  What I am wanting to do is have the image open up in an image
editor on the users computer instead of the browser.  Could anyone help me
figure out how to make these images open up on the users computer, rather
than in a browser?
