Setting <a> target for hyperlinks

Post by EricNat » Tue Dec 12, 2017 5:08 am

Is there any way to allow the user to set the "target" for the <a href> when customizing the hyperlink using TRVInsertActionHyperlink? If not, could this be added to the wish list? We would like the user to be able to set the target as "_blank", "_new", etc. to determine where to open the hyperlink.

Also, on the form that shows when you add a hyperlink, it may be good to rename the "target label" as "URL" since the word "target" has a specific meaning for <a href>'s and it's where the link should open in the browser, not the URL/link itself.

Yes, you can customize links before saving to HTML using OnWriteHyperlink event, see ... rlink.html

As for "target" vs "URL". "Target" is more common word, it can include URLs, bookmarks/anchors/checkpoint, local files, or application-specific targets (which you can process specially in OnJump event). All this can be entered in that dialog.
