Web Browsing from COBOL

The ACUCOBOL-GT Development System includes an Internet-related Web browser graphical control. The Web browser control lets you:

ACUCOBOL-GT's Web browser control is used in the same manner as other graphical controls in ACUCOBOL-GT, except it opens a resource such as an HTML page, graphical image, video, audio, e-mail program, file folder, or any other resource that a Web browser can open. When you include the Web browser control in your source code, your application launches Microsoft Internet Explorer on your user's machine and displays the resource you specified.

For the control to work, your users must have Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 4.0 or later on their machine.
