XMLHTTPRequest from client-stored HTML page?
Posted on 2007-08-09
Okay, a question for you AJAX pros. =)
It's kind of a wierd scenario, but basically we have customers who will be installing local copies of several .HTML pages on their computer (for local/offline accessibility).
I'd like to have those HTML pages, when an internet connection is available, access dynamic data from our website to populate certain sections. It seems to me that AJAX would be usable for this scenario, except that apparently XMLHTTPRequests cannot be made between domains (which would obviously be the case in this scenario, because the page would be located on the client's local filesystem and it would need to do the XMLHTTPRequest to my external website)
Is there a way around this?
