| | How do I view local HTML files?
Please Login to Remove!
I'm wondering how to view a local HTML file in the BlackBerry (8800) web browser. More specifically, I'm wondering how to actually type things in the web browser's URL field to view a local HTML file.
Assuming the name of the file I wish to view is called test.html, on a normal desktop browser this can be done by typing 'file:///c:/test.html' (and also assuming it's located at c:\).
When I transfer this test.html file to the BlackBerry (using Media Manager), the first directory that I can place it in is 'My BlackBerry/Device Memory'. If I try the following URL combinations to view this local HTML file, an error message pops up saying 'A problem occurred while trying to render the page':
file:///My.BlackBerry/Device.Memory/test.html (pressing space results in '.' character instead of blank space for some reason)
Can someone explain:
a) Is it possible to view a local HTML file (i.e., an HTML file that is saved to the BlackBerry somewhere)?
b) If it *is* possible to view a local HTML file, what URL syntax should be used to open the local HTML file in the BlackBerry web browser?
Thanks a lot for anyone who can help me with this-
