:tazz:
I recently posted a question about how to make a custom "lcars" system rather than using windows
Now that i have been told it is near impossible to do i have another idea but i will need help
my plan is to have a group of html files on the pc , the idea being is that i simply put the I.E on full screen.

To do this tho i need to know certin things

1) how do i access my own files on the pc from a web page on the pc?

2)when it reads the files can i make and how do i make custom symbols etc for diffrent types of files
and can i set it so if doubled clicked it will open in a part of the frame of the page

3) how do i make a media player in the page with custom buttons

4) how do i make custom pop ups that will stay in the window at full screen (for when i want to maximise a file)

5)how do i edit word documents etc from the web page

6)how to i get games to play from the web site, can you double click on them to have them open at fullscreen like it does normally


any help would be VASTLy appriacted thanks everyone!

Hmm, this is a strange request :tazz: but I think I can answer some of your questions, or try to anyways.

1) how do i access my own files on the pc from a web page on the pc?

I'm guessing you would just create a standard webpage, and instead of linking files like <a href="http://www.blah.com"> you would use <a href="file:///C://blah">

2)when it reads the files can i make and how do i make custom symbols etc for diffrent types of files
and can i set it so if doubled clicked it will open in a part of the frame of the page

That could be done just with different images, and an iframe

3) how do i make a media player in the page with custom buttons

I think this could done with javascript, but in my opinion, it's quite complicated.

4) how do i make custom pop ups that will stay in the window at full screen (for when i want to maximise a file)

Chromeless popups will do that. However, you will not have the option to resize it, it stays at the full screen size until you close it.

Recently I have been forking on a project like this using python. The trick here though when making soemthing like this, is you should think how in soem way can I offer featurse that the existing OS's cannot. although this prject does interest me and I am isnterested to see how this turns out for you.

1) how do i access my own files on the pc from a web page on the pc?

as file refrences would work but you could look at a combination of PHP and MSQL for it to track and store files for you internaly in the program.

2)when it reads the files can i make and how do i make custom symbols etc for diffrent types of files
and can i set it so if doubled clicked it will open in a part of the frame of the page

This again could be managed with PHP and a MySQL database.

3) how do i make a media player in the page with custom buttons

you could always develope the media player using macromedia flash. that would probly be the best way.

4) how do i make custom pop ups that will stay in the window at full screen (for when i want to maximise a file)

Have to agree with lil_cat_luver on this one
