Hi,   In that case  you probably want to look at https://github.com/Adobe-CEP   This allows you to create panels using HTML and JavaScript, I haven't used it and I am still not sure on your use case.   Malcolm

And what is your purpose for doing this? What is the final format of the file? It won't work with PDF or EPUB.

You'll need in5 for this and then you'll have to deliver the final product as HTML.

* something else?

I'm assuming this is a third party plug-in for which you are the programmer. If not, I can't see any way to understand your question - yet!

Hi Jothi,

(I appreciate that I am restating what is above, but I still do not know what you are trying to do)

 

Are you wanting to provide a external URL to a website that will be shown to the user, like a help manual?  (basically a browser inside InDesign)

OR

are you trying to pull resources from a website to use on the document that the user is working on?

 

I think both are doable, but the approach may be very different depending on which.

Hi Jothi,

 

I would recommend starting here, this would enable you to create a panel that shows HTML pages (CEP HTML Test Extension)

This could be combined with other technologies to allow you to show a html page inside InDesign.
