XRefHT32 - HTML viewer window

This XRefHT32 window allows you to view HTML files; specifically, files that you have created or files that you wish to index using XRefHT32.

The viewer occupies most of the window. This viewer uses Delphi's NEWT Intranet HTML ActiveX control, which does not support some newer HTML features, including frames. A few servers also behave in an unfriendly fashion towards it. For pages using frames or on problem servers, you may need to open an external viewer, such as Netscape Navigator.

Just above the viewer and below the menu bar is a read-only memo box, which will contain the text of the title and any "keywords" and "description" meta tags of the file being viewed.

"File" menu

"Open file..."

This function allows you to open a local or network file for viewing.

"Open URL..."

This function allows you to open a file on an HTTP server for viewing.

"Save as..."

This function allows you to save the HTML file being viewed on a local or network device using a name that you choose.

"Edit" menu

"Copy selection"

This function copies the selected text in the viewer to the clipboard. (To copy the selected text from the title-keywords-description memo box, you can right click on the memo box and select "Copy".)

Only the mouse is available to select text in the viewer. A bug in the NEWT Intranet HTML ActiveX control apparently prevents most appropriate responses by the software to key presses.

"Copy source

This function copies the entire HTML source to the clipboard.

"Insert in list"

This function inserts a new item in the list in XRefHT32's main window with the heading derived from the text selected in the viewer, and with the URL of the file being viewed. (If "Title as subhead" is checked in the main XRefHT32 menu, the title will included as the subheading.) Right clicking in the HTML file view with the mouse has the same effect, as does the "Insert item" function in the main window. (To insert a new item in the list for the selected text in the title-keywords-description memo box, you can right click on the memo box and select "Insert entry".)

"View" menu

"Source"

When this menu item is checked, the HTML source code appears in the viewer instead of the formatted display.

"Window" menu

"Indexing"

This function focuses XRefHT32's main window.
