View Documents

To convert a document into HTML, use the View action. For example:

http://ViewHost:ViewPort/action=View&Reference=DocumentReference

where:

ViewHost is the name or IP address of the host on which the IDOL View component runs.
ViewPort is the IDOL View component ACI port.
DocumentReference

is the full reference of the document that you want to view. The reference can be:

  • A document in the local file system, for example:

    Reference=C:\Documents\report.doc
  • A document on an intranet site, for example:

    Reference=//intranet/report.doc
  • A Web page or document accessible on the Internet, for example:

    Reference=http://news.bbc.co.uk
NOTE:

You can also upload a file to view. See View an Uploaded Document.

For a full list of parameters available for the View action, refer to the IDOL Server Reference.
