I was just wondering if it would be possible to add a property to a Game Piece that will open to a particular website in your browser when you press the hotkey or click on it in the right-click menu. (the URL should be editable like any other string - so that I might reference a dynamic property on the piece as part of the URL).
I’m looking into using a PHP program (or maybe a wiki) to keep track of detailed unit data that Vassal cannot handle.
I don’t know how possible this is, but what about more than just websites? can it be done where if I activate a property, it opens up a certain excel file?
Yes, you could code a trait to do this. There’s already support in VASSAL
for opening URLs in a browser (VASSAL.tools.BrowserSupport), you’d just
have to use that from the ActionListener for the menu item.
