Open .txt file with imagebutton or textbutton

#1 Post by Austinplayz » Tue Mar 17, 2020 4:47 pm

Hey! Is it possible to have a textbutton or an imagebutton open a .txt file when it is clicked?
Something like this (which ik that code isn't right but it's my example lol);
textbutton _("Button") action Open("file.txt")

There isn't a function that explicitly does this unless you create one yourself, but there's the OpenURL() action that can open a web page or an html file in the browser.

You could use an html file instead of txt (though a plain txt might also work), and set it to the button as a local url.
The most important words a man can say are, “I will do better”.
The most important step is always the next one.
