    The native way to open a new page from a button click is using JavaScript.
    Please check this thread, I think the subject that had been discussed here is very similar to your question.

    I hope it helps.

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, you can do by javascript open link in newwindow such as

    function openNewWindow() {
     popupWin ='URL',
     'menubar, toolbar, location, directories, status, scrollbars, resizable, dependent, width=640, height=480, left=0, top=0')
