Detect webview in local client

Hi all,

Does anyone know if it is possible to detect if webview is turned on or off with the local client?

I have tried ClientPlatform() but it returns null in both cases.

I don't mind using a macro but I couldn't find anything interesting in the API guide.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Best Regards,

Hi Robert,

The ClientPlatform() function returns values only when the report is opened from Access point or URL.

I am not sure about how to check it in desktop client (Might be some macro/action).

Its just that by default it is not enabled, you need to enable it either from View--Turn on/off webview or as mentioned in the previous post by Sunil.

Hope this helps!

Hi Sunil, Shyamal,

Thank you for your answers.

I know where to find and how to use Webview. I am looking for a way to detect if webview is activated or not. This would allow me to hide the objects using that use extensions.

Alternatively, if I can find a way to create a button that turns on webview it would help me too.

Many thanks!
