Can we add hyperlink control on Steps page to link pdf/word document. user click on hyperlink and document open in browser in next tab?
hello @nitingoel82, yes this can be done using the
Open File Action:
as a note, this currently only works on Windows.
Which control we need to take to make as a hyperlink, my requirement is user go to page and click on link and pdf/word file open in browser. Please let us know exact step which need to follow to make hyperlink.
Here you are making page (Steps) as a link however i need to ask user to click on link button and then pdf file open in Browser.
Also pls let me know how to define file path. My file is in C:\Users\File\Test.pdf
I see the path hasn’t been entered into the Expression Editor yet. could you try adding it in the black box following
Static Value, save the Expression, and save the entire Trigger??
Yes i entered the path and click on save window close the i open again trigger path is not visible and coming black screen and button is not performing any action.
@nitingoel82 that will happen if the Expression is not saved prior to saving the Trigger. can you confirm you are saving the Expression using this button:
Now link tab is open but file is not coming.
Observation: 1. path will not take any space. 2. colon is removed after c
Now please guide how can we do this as its not working if i select variable.
thanks for sharing @nitingoel82!!
seen as you’re accessing a local file, could you use the
Open File Action instead of
Open File Action is not working for me. Can you please give me a proper example with running code.
hello @nitingoel82, what is the error message you’re seeing??
and just to confirm are you running the Player on a Windows computer??
Yes, Player on a Windows computer.
If i use
Open File Action then click on button nothing happen no error comes.
Can you please create a local folder and add any pdf file and call through program and share code.
hello @nitingoel82, thanks for sharing. I do notice that you’re using the
Open Link Action rather than the
Open File. have you tried using the
Open File Action??
here is how the Trigger would look like, along with the result in the Player when using the
Open File Action @nitingoel82:
Now my problem is resolved.
file will open through tulip player not by developer tool.
great to hear!! let us know if you have any other questions @nitingoel82.
