URL/Hyperlink in a BEx Web Template

I'm looking for a possibility to open URL/Hyperlink which would open a popup window, by pressing a button on a web template. The problem is that button from web items only support executing Web API (there is no possibility to open URL from there) or executing a java script.

Is there any simpler way? Just using "hyperlink" is not good because it's not possible to put it just next to other buttons in a web template (and it's not customizable enough either - even change font size seems to be not possible).

If this is doable only though java script, could anyone please give a simple example of java script code which opens URL in a new window?

    Hi Gleb,

    in case you are using BI 7.0 this is not supported using standard features. However you can try using a simple coding such as this one:

    function executeURL( currentState, defaultCommandSequence ){
     var templName = sapbi_page.m_mainTemplateName; 
     var baseDir = "http://...../";
     var docuFile = baseDir + templName + ".htm";
     window.open (docuFile);
    }

    Implement a buttongroup-item and a scriptItem containing the am coding. Link the "executeURL" to your button (by using SCRIPT_FUNCTION).

    Does this work for you?

    Brgds,

    Marcel
