Embedding links to websites in HoloLens Experiences

Is it possible to add "clickable" links to websites in a Vuforia View HoloLens Experience? They could be opened with Microsoft Edge.

Hi @pjahn ,

 

we do not have a link widget directly but you can use any widgets which supports  the  click event:  modelitems  , 3dImage , 3d Gauges  and 3dLabels.

You can simple call from there a funciton  - here example:

 

$scope.openUrl=function()
{
let url= "https://www.bing.com/"
window.open(url)
}

I tested it and it was working - it called the edge browser and open the web. page. 

So , in this case the clickable links should be some 3d elements where you have to point with the gase functionality and tap on them (tap event) I think this could be used as workaround. (HoloLens 1)

Re: Embedding links to websites in HoloLens Experiences

but here seems to be a problem:

- in chrome preview is working fine - it displays  the web page

-> MS Edge will start and will try the open the correct link but  it will block it with the message "this side is not secure" and there is an security cerificate error. The same URL could be opened in edge on the HoloLens without problemes when the Edge browser is started from the GUI.

By default settings we can open only URL with the same domain.

 

For example if the ES server is:

https://xxxxfd7o.studio-trial.thingworx.io/ExperienceService

then we can open a preview of another experience:

///////////////
$scope.openUrl=function()
{
 let url= "https://www.bing.com/"
url="https://xxxxfd7o.studio-trial.thingworx.io/ExperienceService/content/projects/bla/index-desktop.html?expIndex=0#/Home"
 window.open(url)
}

So seems that CORS seem to  be here an issue, but may be you can find  setting to disable this behavior and to call it..
