Shelllaunch in RolloutCreator

Hopefully somebody can help me. I've built a menu with a "rolloutCreator". This works very well.

Now I'm trying to add a helpbutton for opening a pdf-file, but it doesn't work. The code looks like this:

...
helpName = fileArray[i]
rci.addHandler (execute ("#myHelpButton" + i as string)) #pressed codeStr:("ShellLaunch helpName @/[email protected]") filter:on
...

For testing I tried this and it worked very well:

...
rci.addHandler (execute ("#myHelpButton" + i as string)) #pressed codeStr:("print @### Test ###@") filter:on
...

What I'm doing wrong? Thank you for your help.

Played around a bit and this

Played around a bit and this is the result :) hope it helps:

-- 3 ways to declare a path: 1 = absolute -> works, 2 = relative -> doesn't work, 3 = symbolic -> works
thisFolder = getFilenamePath( getSourceFilename() )
fileArray = #("C:/test/test.pdf", "test.pdf", thisFolder+"\\test.pdf")
file = fileArray[3]
 
-- if you've choosen the symbolic path, set "\" to "/", otherwise it won't work
for s=1 to file.count where file[s] == "\\" do file[s] = "/"
 
-- build rollout
rfTest = rolloutCreator "rfTestN" "rfTestC"
rfTest.begin()
rfTest.addControl #button #myButton "My Button"
rfTest.addHandler #myButton #pressed codeStr:("shelllaunch @"+file+"@ @ @") filter:on 
rfTest.end()
createDialog rfTest.def
