Smile Viewing locally stored HTML files

Please Login to Remove!

I have been trying to find a way to use the bb browser to view locally stored html files and finally find it can be done thanks to gibbonsmartin and several others in a post at another forum.
You simply use the browsers' 'go to...' menu and enter 'file:///' and then the correct path and file name.

For instance, if the file is stored on the device at /Device Memory/home/user/documents/, then you enter the address as "file:///store/home/user/documents/filename.htm". If the file is stored on the memory card say at /Media Card/Documents/, then you enter "file:///SDCard/Documents/filename.htm. One important item is to refrain from using spaces in either file or folder names as the browser will not accept spaces and replace them with a period.

Works like a charm and hyperlinks to other documents work as well. I recently placed a folder with 196 html files in it on my SD card. The main html file links to the other 195 files. I can open the main html and link to all 195 and if those files link to others in the folder, they work as well.

Just thought I'd pass this info along for those interested.
