Launching Pathfinder CORE Pro Panels in APP mode with Google Chrome

Updated 3 weeks ago by Bryan Jones


In this document, we will show you how to create a Google Chrome shortcut that directly launches a panel.


NOTE: Windows Only

This is only for Google Chrome and assumes your copy of Chrome is installed at C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe.

If your Chrome version is installed in a different location, you will need to change this configuration accordingly.

Set the Target:

Your target properties need to look like this example. The only differences are the IP address of YOUR Pathfinder Core Pro and the panel=<yourpanelname> property. We suggest you copy and paste this entirely, including the beginning and ending quotes.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --app="data:text/html,<html><body><script>window.location='http://Admin:Admin@';</script></body></html>"

Start IN:

Set the Start In property like this. Change this if this is NOT where your copy of Chrome is installed.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application"

If you always want the Panel to launch in the same place on the screen you can add another option: window.moveTo(580,240). For example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --app="data:text/HTML,<HTML><body><script> window.moveTo(580,240); window.location='http://Admin:Admin@';</script></body></HTML>"

How did we do?
