Receiver for HTML5 integrates with Receiver for Web sites. To access their virtual desktops and hosted applications using Receiver for HTML5, users navigate to a Receiver for Web site using a compatible browser running on a supported operating system.
The user experience with Receiver for HTML5 is as follows:
For session sharing to occur, the applications must be hosted on the same machine and must be configured in seamless window mode with the same settings for parameters such as window size, color depth, and encryption. Session sharing is enabled by default when a hosted application is made available.
If App Switcher is installed on the machine providing the applications, a taskbar appears at the bottom of the window. The taskbar displays all the applications currently running in the session, enabling users to switch between those applications. Users can configure the taskbar to auto-hide and switch to small icons to minimize the amount of space taken up by the taskbar.
A floating toolbar containing controls for Receiver for HTML5 is displayed in the browser tab, as shown in the following figure. The clipboard button enables users to copy and paste Unicode plain text between the local clipboard on the device and the resource running in the browser. Users can use standard Windows shortcuts to copy data, including text, tables, and images, between hosted applications, both within the same session and between different sessions. Users can also send the CTRL+ALT+DELETE key combination to their desktops and applications using a button on the toolbar.
When printing a document opened with a hosted application or an application running on a virtual desktop, the user is given the option to print the document to PDF. The PDF is then transferred to the local device for viewing and printing from a locally attached printer. The file is removed from the device when the user closes the PDF.
A user who clicks a link in a document opened using a hosted application is given the choice of whether to open the URL in a hosted browser application within the session or to use the browser on the local device.
To assist with troubleshooting issues, you can view Receiver for HTML5 logs generated during a session.
The log file generated for the Receiver for HTML5 session is shown on the logging page. You can also download the log file for further analysis.
