Xpages Popup Window

Hi all

I've recently started to play with Xpages within Notes 8.5 and have knocked up a little xpage that shows call awaiting allocation within our service desk system with a link to open the call.  The link opens the standard web enabled form, not an Xpage using the following code set in the data\pageUrl section of All Properties within the view panel column:

var _row:NotesXspViewEntry = rowData;
var _unid = _row.getUniversalID();
return "http://server/database.nsf/0/" + _unid + "?OpenDocument";

My question is this, how can I get the document to open in a 'new' window so that the user does not navigate away from the Xpage?  I'm guessing the javascript will need to be client side but the only option for the above is server side...

Yes, the calculation is server side, but there are more tricks. Two solutions (at least):
- javascript window.open()
- a link with a target

In both cases you have to generate HTML code. The first method is blocked nowadays by many browsers, plus it's a little more complex, so here's the idea how to handle the second one.

Create a view column of content type HTML, with the following formula:

base:=@Subset(@DbName; -1);
html:=html + "<a href=\"/" + base + "/0/" + _unid + "?OpenDocument\" target=\"_blank\">";
html:=html + subject;
html:=html + "</a>";
html

Or similar in SSJS.

Oh, and there is a third way: create an Iframe on the fly.

Ok it works like this.
same as you just a small change to work in any database:
var _row:NotesXspViewEntry = rowData;
var _unid = _row.getUniversalID();
return  "0/" + _unid + "?OpenDocument";

then in the events\onClick enter the following code.
window.open(href,"_blank");
return false;

make sure it is Client Side Script

Opens a new window with your document in and leave the view as is.

That's just what I was looking for.......however, just to be a pain, is it possible to pop the window in a new 'tab' instead of a window?

It is down to the browser and settings afaik, e.g. for IE the tabbed browsing settings - http://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/force-ie-to-open-link-in-new-tab/ . You can only direct into a new window (_blank) or the same window etc.
