Direkt opening one file.

Postby HermanD » Mon Apr 15, 2019 7:17 am

Is there a way to open one database file direkt from the android homescreen?
I would like one icon for that specific database, that opens direkt on clicking on the Icon.
(No longer to need scroll down through the list off data bases)

regards.

A quick search of the internet, I found this in the Google Play Store

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... r&hl=en_US

If that is not available to you in your region, I would search for a file manager type app that can create shortcuts from a file. The shortcut should then be able to be placed on the home screen, and HanDBase should open to that file.

I do not have an Android device to test this theory with, so I cannot say for certain if it works.
Have a good day

Hello Curtterp,
Installed that program, but it does not work.
It trys to open the ***.pdb file in Handbase.PDBreceiceVieuw program
and that does not open the file.
See no way to tell the launcher to use the normal Handbase program.
Well perhaps you have to open first Hanybase before you can open a PDB file.

Only way I see now to open de most used file is to chance the filename.
Put 1- before the file name, so it is on top off the database list and can be opend with
two pushes on the screen instead of the wanted 1 push opening.

Thanks for your idea.

Hopefully Dave can shed more light on this issue.

Sorry it didn't work out.
