JavaScript can not be used to call external programs--It is a security feature of the language. The only thing you can do is have a link to a file which your web browser will then open. If it is an executable file, most web browsers will be configured to ask the user if he/she wants to execute it, but it depends on the configuration of each web browser.
The only thing you can do is call a trigger after submitting the DynaForm which will execute an external program. There might be some way to use XmlHttpRequest() to execute the external program. See: ... pplication
