Re: Execute associated image viewer or media player on button click

You don't say under what system you need this.

On windows you would simply do:


and you would call the viewer associated with .png files.

(This works for url's as well as just running it through system, runs the prefered user browser).

On Linux there is no such system default, but the specifics depend on your desktop.

Hi All,

I have 2 buttons in my program.  One labelled 'Play' and the other 'View'.  Is there a way to call the associated image viewer or media player when a file has been found and then the button is clicked?

Not sure if I should be asking here or on a Perl forum.

Many thanks for any suggestions.
