Link to URl

Hello All,

I have a WDj app. I am asking the user to enter user name and password and validating it against LDAP and then showing the user a second view. It just has one ui Elment LINK TO URL.

I want the link to open in the same browser window as the wdj app is runing.

Is it possible to achieve following things

1> Call the url directly after the user is authnticated as in redirecting the url.

2> Oepn the link in the same window

I have tried _MAIN, _SELF and "" but it does not open the link in the same window.

3> Open the brwser in the new window and close the parent window.

Thanks and Regards

Hi,

>Call the url directly after the user is authnticated as in redirecting the url.

You can use exit plugs on the WD and pass the URL as a parameter.

>Oepn the link in the same window

No, The standard targets "_self", "_parent" and the others have been deactivated for the LinkToURL UI element. By default a link will open in a new window and you cannot change this. You can use portal navigation though.

>Open the brwser in the new window and close the parent window.
