Localhost Files in HTML Component
« on: November 25, 2014, 11:10:21 AM »
I believe that LocalHost is a provision supported in Windows 8 (8.1) -- but I've also read that using the local IP Address could work.

I'm not having any luck in the HTML Component.

Does anyone have experience with calling a local file in the HTML5 Component?
(not firefox or other browser)

Thanks

For local host to work you need to install the local webserver, try installing xampp in windows8 and put the files in http docs. It will work.

ANOOP - thanks

In testing some other applications (not relevant to signage) -- in order to test the implementation, it opened a website on 'localhost' --

In this action, I assumed that windows acknowledges local host without needing additional software. And that was the nature of my inquiry.

How can I call on a localhost file without installing additional software on the device. Does windows 8 already have something installed? Since the other application used 'localhost' -- I thought it was possible.

Thanks.

There is something called cache manifest.. The HTML5 page has to have the code for the cache manifest. I am not very sure about this solution but you could google on that.
