So I was challenged a couple of days ago by Art Thomas to give him an attachment viewer for when he receives images, movies, etc in mail and he just wants to immediately view them without launching them individually. I started thinking about how I would implement it and I came to the conclusion that we kind of have the ultimate viewer right at our disposable – the SWT Browser! So in short, watch the video and let me know what you think.
I gave this out internally for now as a Widget and also showed some people how to change their mail application to have the viewer embedded into Memo and Reply forms (as I demonstrate in the video). I think this project will be good for OpenNTF and a couple of tutorial videos on how I did it….more to come.
