Function: llLoadURL( key avatar, string message, string url );

Shows dialog to avatar offering to load web page at url with message.
If user clicks yes, launches the page in their web browser, starting the browser if required.

• key avatar avatar UUID that is in the same region
• string message message to be displayed in the dialog box
• string url

The url is truncated to 255 characters and message is truncated to 254 characters.
The protocol for the url must be specified, currently only "https://" and "http://" are supported.
The URL should be RFC-1738 compliant with proper escapes.


  • This function causes the script to sleep for 10.0 seconds.
  • This function should not be called from group deeded objects[1], it will silently fail.
  • This function silently fails for an avatar that has muted itself.[2]

Deep Notes


  • Introduced in version 1.6, no support for group deeded objects.
  • As of version ~1.9, support for group deeded objects was added (possibly by accident).
  • In the server upgrade released on 2007-03-14, support for group deeded objects was removed.

  1. ^ This was not always the case, see History for details
  2. ^ This can be extremely bewildering to debug because there's no easy way for a user to self-mute. Apparently it "just happens."
