Binding not working between image and hyperlink

Hi all

I want to use an image as a kind of button to open a hyperlink. So i created a hyperlink and an image.

When i want to bind the click event to the hyperlink, it shows the popup but it is not possible to bind.

Tested on 2 different users / systems using Chrome as browser.

Neither of the widgets mentioned here have click events... I think we need more specifics, and maybe a screenshot.

Stefaan Vlaminck​: I believe you are pointing this in reference to ThingWorx Studio 2 D widgets - Image & Hyperlink.  I would suggest to use a Resource Image instead and call JS function on its Events.

Also, on your point  "When i want to bind the click event to the hyperlink, it shows the popup but it is not possible to bind" seems to be a defect and will further raise it Product Management team to be reviewed and get fixed.

Helo,

Here is an image of the issue.

Stefaan,

I am experiencing this "defect" also. I would like to be able to set the Click event to bind to a hyperlink, but I get the same blank services pop up box.

It would be a nice-to-have function, as a hyperlink widget displayed as the usual underlined text URL is a little bit dated and detracts from the other toggle button displayed on Experiences.

Stefaan VlaminckBrian Whelan​ If your objective is to navigate through the url on 'Resource image' widget click, then you can also use JS code to do that. Technically, you can write a JS function that sends request to the desired url and certainly have the widget click action to trigger the JS function:

else 
{
window.location="https://isap.de/";
}

 

But then I can not return to my expirience. I only can scan it again. When using the hyperlink widget, there is an icon to return to the expirience.

 

How has the js code to look like, when i want the behavior of the hyperlink widget?

Re: Binding not working between image and hyperlink

I might have misunderstood the requirement here, but it sounds like you want to have some sort of custom image as a button and when you click on the button, it opens a hyperlink.  Is that is the case, then you can user the Hyperlink widget and format it using CSS to appear as an image.

 

Have a look here for the details: How to attach link to the image button widget?

Re: Binding not working between image and hyperlink

Hello Allan,

 

i need the Hyperlink in the 3d environment. I need some pictures, distributed in the 3d space, oriented with the Billboard option. By touching on of the 3d images, a hyperlink has to start.

 

That is working with the js code. But then it is not possible to go back from the linked page to the expirience. You only can scan again.

 

Hope i made it more clear now.
