Lesson 27. Using Lingo on the Web > Using a Test File on a Local Drive

Using a Test File on a Local Drive

Developing a Web movie would be extremely time consuming if you could test your work in progress only by repeatedly launching your Web browser and connecting to the Internet. Fortunately, Lingo commands for creating Web movies accept URLs or file path names interchangeably. By using a file path name instead of a URL, you can greatly speed up your project development. For your initial development work, you will display a test file in the Web browser. When your scripting is complete, you'll substitute a URL that has been set up for you at Macromedia's Web site.

The test file you'll use is the FineDine.htm file you earlier copied to your hard disk. To use the FineDine.htm test page, you need to specify the file's path name in the gotoNetPage command that you set up in the previous task. Here's a trick that guarantees that you won't make a typing mistake when specifying the path name.
