New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.
What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.
During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.
I've tried to add a hyperlink (via the genereic elements panel) and modify the href property to have
. I've tried the properties under the Hyperlink option, but I never got the desired results. The report show up with a link, but clicking it does nothing. However, if I right click it, and select open in a new tab, then it opens correctly, with the yahoo.com page.
I've also tried using the HTML button from the Objects panel, and in it I put
. In HTML canvas it seems to look right (it looks like a hyperlink) but when I run the report, the Help text is just regular text. I can't click it or anything. And by the way... how does this control work exactly? I would love to be able to just add html to a page in HTML Canvas and I think this is how to do it, but it doesn't work as I expect.
I've explored using the Requets & Data Sources panel, but I don't think that's the right path. Just seems like too much to do for a stinking hyperlink!
I'm sure I can open the htm file (created by HTML Canvas) in a text editor and modify the code, but I'm reluctant to do that in case I won't be able to open it in HTML canvas again.
Any tips here?This message has been edited. Last edited by: FP Mod Chuck,

Ok... that worked... thanks MartinY (and JulieA who provided a similar solution).
So... my follow up question. I don't really want to link to yahoo.com (that was just for testing). I am trying to link to an html file created outside of webfocus. Where should I save that file and what url should I use to link to it.
Be warned... this is a rant... I find the webfocus GUIs so unintuitive at times. Like, there is a control called hyperlink with a href property and it doesn't do use the href as a link (except when right clicking and opening it in a new tab which is even stranger). And all those steps for a link?!?!?
We are ALWAYS jQuerying it up at our site gutting IBI generated code & injecting our own to get things functioning the way we want it. Like I was saying in my other post, I don't even use AppStudio for such things if I can help it. It's just [silliness]. VSCode is the new AppStudio HTML tool of choice here. lol
Also, I wonder just how many less posts we'd have in these forums if they did a better job with their documentation, etc. Something to think about....
8.2.02M (production), 8.2.02M (test), Windows 10, all outputs.

Hi MartinY, Can you please explain how we can pass the html form values in that URL.
