Design Studio script to open new layout in another BO portal tab

Hi,

The user is running their design studio layout from BO portal (launch pad). I want the user to be able to click on a text field in my Design studio layout and open a new Design Studio layout in the BO portal, but in another tab. In Design Studio it is possible to add a "On Click" script to the text-object. I do not know the syntax for opening a new tab in the existing BO portal browser.

At this Point my script says: APPLICATION.openNewWindow("http://xxxxxxxx:8080/BOE/OpenDocument/1606090853/OpenDocument/opendoc/openDocument.faces?logonSuccessful=true&shareId=1");

but this opens my required design studio layout in a new BROWSER WINDOW and this ist NOT what I want. I want a new BO portal tab showing the layout, bestides the running tab in the open BO portal browser. Note that this is from/to Design Studio, not Webi!

Thanks,

Sofie

    Different browser behaves differently. Which browser you are using and which version ? I checked in Firefox 47, Chrome 54, IE 11 - opens the link in new tab.

      Hi, Yes that is correct. It opens in a new browser tab, but that is NOT what I want. I want to open the linked layout in a new tab in the existing BO launchpad browser window.

      Any ideas?

    Hi,

    Starting with Design Studio 1.6 SP2, there is the LINK component which does exactly what you need. It was a pain point till this SP.

      Hi, as Mustafa points out, I do NOT want it in another window. I want it in the same window, but in another BO Launchpad tab inside the window...

      Ideas?

    Hi both,

    Sorry for miss-interpreting that. Currently I am not ware of any possible solution for another window in the BO launchpad itself. This would have nothing to do with Design Studio. But with how the Launchpad handles the "new window" procedure.

    Regards,

    Bogdan
