Q - question

How to display any web page in Inventor?

A - answer In Inventor, you can use the function "Team Web" (Get Started > Launch > Team Web) to display any HTML document or web page. You can preset default page address for this function (alternatively also for the "My Home" function) in the application options, on the File tab:

The default setting is the file %PUBLICDOCUMENTS%\Autodesk\Inventor 2015\Web\en-US\CustomHelpSample.htm - you can change it e.g. to the address of this portal - www.cadforum.cz.

If you want to display a given web page, without changing the setting permanently, you can use the following code of an iLogic rule:

'Default application settings
'default web page/file:
'%PUBLICDOCUMENTS%\Autodesk\Inventor 2015\Web\cs-CZ\CustomHelpSample.htm
' =
'C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor 2015\Web\cs-CZ\CustomHelpSample.htm

'web page to display, e.g. "www.google.com"
Dim targetUrl As String = "www.cadforum.cz" 

'Store current settings
Dim defaultUrl As String = ThisApplication.FileOptions.TeamWebFullFilename
Try
    'Temporary chnge settings
    ThisApplication.FileOptions.TeamWebFullFilename = targetUrl

    'Open webpage
    ThisApplication.CommandManager.ControlDefinitions("AppTeamWebCmd").Execute()
Finally
    'Restore settings to original value
    ThisApplication.FileOptions.TeamWebFullFilename = defaultUrl
End Try
