In my custom toolbar, I have series of steps that need to be processed in order. Between two of these steps, it is necessary to do quite a bit of manual editing (in ArcMap...polygons)....based on some input from staff, and most likely from some paper sources. I will have a document of some type (.doc, .txt or similar) will some detailed instructions.
Is there a way that I can open a document thru a python/arcpy script and add it to my toolbar? If I can get the script, I should be able to do the toolbar/addin part, but I haven't figure out how to "open" a readme type file thru a toolbox script/button.
In theory, I would probably not even have any input parameters, and I would hard code the (relative) path to the document. I've started searching for solutions, but thought I would throw this question out there in case a solution already exists. I have not written any specific code for this problem yet (i.e., nothing worth sharing).
If I can figure this out, I will use this in several of my addin projects.
