The "ShortcutUrl" Command

This command creates internet shortcuts (to URLS), for other types of shortcuts please see the "Shortcut" command.

There are many requirements for this sort of shortcut this is why this command has been designed to allow you to plug in your own implementation code (see the "HOW" parameter) as well as configuring the supplied code. The following descibes the "HOW" parameter only as the other parameters are specific to how the URL is generated:

For more information see the sections describing the "HOW" types:

GENERIC OPTIONS

These are options that apply to all modes (each mode will have more options):

#define? DEFAULT_ADD_GENERATED_RESOURCES_TO_DOCO  N
