I have an west pane with an tree menue where i load an page with the content loader into the center pane. Now in the center pane, there is an grid. In this grid there I want to have an link to the next page which should be opened as a new tab in the same region where the content loader opend the previous page. Problem is, it alsways creates a second level of tabs. See screenshot of page 9000 in your documentation. Maybe this should explan what exactly I want.

Hello Matt

thank you very much for your great help. This is exactly what I wanted. This forum is absolutely great.

In the "When" section when defining the triggering element in the dynamic action listen for the "FOEX - Button - Normal Button Click" event and simply select your button.

Note: make sure your button action is set to "defined by dynamic action"

Is it also possible to change this Tab Text after it is opened? Maybe with an dynamic action?

In your link attributes add the following:

rel="Ticket: #TICKET_NR#"

You can use column name substitutions for columns that are included in the grid.

Hi, I meant, with this link I loaded an page into the #PR1_CENTER_PANE and in this Page, when I click save the Tab Name should change.

Please create a new question for this and include the details of your test case, workspace etc.

There were a number of issues with your test case

  1. You did not use a content loader dynamic action to open report links, you simply relied on a regular column link functionality which when clicked behaves like a regular hyperlink and replaces the current page
  2. You did not provide a region static ID on the center pane on the parent page which you wanted to load the content into

I have updated your test case to show you a working example. The key points are:

  1. include class="new-tab" in your report column links alt text

  2. Create a new dynamic action that listens on click and searches for the class reference added in step 1 i.e. "new-tab" alt text

  3. Edit the center pane on your parent page and set the region static ID alt text

  4. Use the content loader and set the load into context correctly and use a jQuery selector for the affected element using the same region static ID set in step 3 alt text

You can use the "Load into Region Context?" setting and use either "Parent" or "Top" page. You then need to ensure that you pane?layout region on the top page has a REGION_STATIC_ID set and that you use a jQuery selector in the content loader dynamic action for the affected element e.g. #CENTER_PANE

If you have problems with the setup please create a test case on and we will assist you.

Hi Matt

I created Application 356 because it does´t work. Maybe I made something wrong. alt text

You have to click on "entry1" and the click on the link in the grid. Then is opens the new tab in second level. I would like to have this one in the first level like "entry1".

Thanks Christian

Is this also possible with an button? Because in an button, I couldn´t find the "Link attributes".
