BASEURL doesn't work as expected

BASEURL doesn't work as expected

BASEURL doesn't work as expected

hi all,

i'm trying to watch a report-generated graph on another server than the WebFocus-Server. For this purpose, i found out, that SET BASEURL=url should be used, but unfortunately it doesn't work. It seems to have no effect on the generated HTML. I would have expected, that <BASE HREF="url"> appears.
Does anybody have an idea or has anybody successfully used SET BASEURL?
I would be glad to hear your experiences.

thanks a lot, andy

Syntax: How to Specify a Base URL
SET BASEURL=url where:


Is the fully-qualified directory in which additional HTML files, graphics files, and Java applet CLASS files reside. The URL must begin with http:// and end with a closing delimiter (/).

Example: Specifying a Base URL
The following illustrates how to specify a base URL:

SET BASEURL=http://www.informationbuilders.com/ibi_html/newcentcorp/   images/If you are including a graphic image in your report that is stored in the specified base URL, you can add the following declaration to your StyleSheet instead of typing the entire URL:

TYPE=HEADING, IMAGE=leftlogo.gif, ..., $Note: If the URL is at a remote website, it may take longer to retrieve. Whenever possible, store graphic image files on your WebFOCUS system.

RE: BASEURL doesn't work as expected

hi mmiles,

thanks for replying.
before i opened my thread, i already tried it this way (SET BASEURL=http://myserver/directory/), but as i described, nothing seems to happen.
here is an example of my full code, perhaps anybody sees a command, that collides with SET BASEURL:
SET LOOKGRAPH=BAR                                          
SET GRAPHEDIT=OFF                                          
SET GRID=ON                                                
SET BARNUM=OFF                                             
SET 3D=ON                                      
SET BASEURL=http://myserver/ibi_html/javaassist/
GRAPH FILE CAR                                              
SUM SALES                                                      
ACROSS MODEL                                              
ON GRAPH SET GRAPHSTYLE *
