I’m using AR7 section reports to generate PDFs that are served to a web browser. When I set the “hyperlink” property of a text control to a URL it works properly, but the new page opens in the same window/tab as the PDF so users have to use the browser “back” button to return to the PDF. What I’d like to happen is for the hyperlink to open in a new window or tab.
I’ve googled and found a few very old threads here discussing that topic, that mention putting some script code in the hyperlink property of the text control. But all the code examples start with “BLOCKED SCRIPT” – it looks like the forum software is blocking some of the example code.
Can anyone describe to me what needs to be done to make this work, in a way the forum software won’t break? It looks like it involves “window.open” but I’ve tried a bunch of variations on that and can’t get it to work.
