Formcalc GET function & HTML support

It seems I've hit a roadblock in a form I am currently working on.

I'm using the Formcalc GET function to download the contents of a web page (it's actually the results of an sql query on a web page). From here, I'm not sure what to do with the downloaded html. If i save the downloaded information as a .html text document (notepadfile.html), when it opens in my browser the html is correctly formatted.

Thoughts I've had:

- Is there a way to add html support to livecycle?

- Can I open the results of the GET function directly into a web browser?

- Can I save/attach the contents of a text field as a .html and open it all through scripting?

I'm no javascript/formcalc expert so this may be an easy issue. Any help would be appreciated!

Maybe look at creating an attachment object, Acrobat DC SDK Documentation  and then opening it Acrobat DC SDK Documentation .

I've note tried it but I have parsed the response and loaded up the form data DOM to display the results within the form
