How to enable a hyperlink on text using Link control in SUP Hybrid workflow application


This document will focus on using the control “Link” from the palette in a Sybase Hybrid workflow application.This functionality will come handy when the user has to click on a certain text and then navigate to a different screen after clicking on the hyperlink.

     The document will walk you through some customization achieved on a Sybase HWC application.

     I am taking into consideration here the MBO which is created by using the BAPI from SAP system.

     I shall be skipping the basic steps for creating a MBO by using a RFC from SAP system and the subsequent creation of a workflow from it.

     Steps to configure a hyperlink on a text to open a navigation screen :

     The link control in the palette can be used to make a phone number or an email id.It can also be used to call an external URL.

     In this particular document i shall show you how to open a different screen on the click of a text item.

Step 1 : Create a link on the screen by dragging the control Link from the palette.

Step 2 : Other than email and telephone number there is an option of choosing “open external URL”.

Step 3 : Change the method showURLInBrowser to a menuItemCallback method which will help you navigate to the screen you wish to go to.

Step 4: The method menuItemCallback will trigger a new screen on the click of the text and will help you go to a different screen.
