    ADAM objects - add a new file extension and viewer

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 22

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    How to add a new file extension and viewer in order to display ADAM objects e.g. with extension ocx or psx?

    Add the file extensions to table $alephe_tab/tab_z403_extension.lng

    For e.g. ocx (corresponds to a doc x file) add a line:
    ocx ocx f-tn-doc.jpg Y 100k gen

    In column 9 of the table you may also add an external viewer, see here the description from "Aleph System Librarian's Guide - ADAM":
    Column 9:
    If you want to use an external viewer for displaying objects, the pathname to the viewer’s executable file must be entered here. If this column is left empty, the default plugin of the browser will be used.
