LinktoAction for new pop up screen

Hi

I have two views and I need to have alink from one to another as a seperate window. i.e I tried to have a linktoaction element in first view and onclick it must call the second view in a new window ?

I have a action written with a outboundplug from the parent view to the child view. currently when I tried to click on the action, it shows the second view in the same window itself. Is there any option like the linktoURL for opening in seperate window (_BLANK...etc) please help me out

    If running on the portal, you can accomplish this through the wdportalnavigation API.

    Hi Sathya

    Instead of firing an outbound plug. Check the IWDWindow APIs to open the window as a popup. This is almost similar to the window.open() method in javascript

    Hi Sathya,

    I think you can do the following. Create one action in you view for the Link. Attach the link to the action. In the action just open a pop up window using the WindowManager. At the design time create one more window (the new one), create the target view inside it. It should work in this way.

    You can open a pop up window like WDComponentAPI.getWindowManager().createPopupWindow(). Please check the API for correct syntax.

    hope this helps,
