Writing File to \res folder in runtime

Recommended Posts

You cant. No browser is allowed to save data to disk or to access the local file-system.

The only means of storage is LocalStorage (w3storage.pas).

This allows you to save roughly 5-10 megabytes per domain.


When you compile with phonegap, this limitation goes away and you also get access to the phonegap file-api, so you can save to disk

Thanks Diaz - I'll use the LocalStorage.


I am trying to save a html file then open and display it using the browser (W3IFrameHTMLElement).

The usual way would be to assign the browser Src property = res/filename.htm


Is there a way I can do the same with a file from localstorage?  Once I read the content from LocalStorage into a string variable, how can I set the W3IFrameHTMLElement URL to display html content from the variable?
