Web application client GUI

Posted on: December 8, 2006

Using simple HTML you can create a simple mimic of a web application client that runs on Microsoft windows. I believe that you need Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher but you can create a application type of interface that can link to an external website or web application.

I originally looked into this as I wanted to create an application client thing for the front end of some software that I had written, So I thought I would share it all with you…

All you need to do is to open a plain text document enter in the HTML code and then save the file with the .hta extentsion. HTA I believe stands for Hyper Text Application please note that you cannot write ASP or PHP in here as it is server side excuted, In the script below however you can see that I have found a way of porting an external website or application to appear in the client window.
