Open a folder on a network drive

  • 1.  Open a folder on a network drive

    Posted 12-14-2017 14:43
    I've been trying to establish a button which would open a folder on a network drive. I've been able to accomplish this within Chrome, which displays the folders and files, but I would like to have it open a Windows Explorer window so files in the folder can be edited and more added. 

    I have it set up to where in edit when the project is added the folders location would be added, then in view it would show a button to that location. I've been trying to figure this out for a while now and figure some javascript will need to be used, which I'm not very good at yet.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Such functionality is blocked by the browser - they wont let you connect to a local network or server. it is a security issue.

    Are you using chrome or firefox?

    If so please see here

    Again, as stated above, security issue, but is doable and have replicated it myself_
