Hi All
I have problem solving this one.
I have a button in my GUI and some items, only one can be selected at anytime.
once the user picks one item and click the button in there, netscape should open and the name of the selected item should appear in that.
i tried to solve it like this,
i got the one that is selected and could open the netscape using runtime. i have also written a perl file that should appear in the browser with the selected item.
please help me out what else i should do.

Are you trying to pass a URL to Netscape??
