Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Topic: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Is it possible in a later release to have the ability to creat a custom field that links to a HTML or hyperlink code to trigger the opening of an external application. We want to trigger a document management system that will open at a relevant view for capturing service reports or spare parts information from a mouse over on a unit.

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

we can make hyperkinks in custom fields.
but i doubt that one can click on the tool-tip (mouseover) in Wialon Hosting.

Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Hi Aliaksandr,

The mouse over trigger would be a nice to have. It would be good to be able to determine which custom fields should show in the mouse over window so the user can see what exists. They can then click on the unit properties to get to the custom field tab. At the moment they all show. Unless if I set them as an administrative field normal users won't see them so this will work.

The real functionality is to have the custom field hold the hyperlink. So if that is possible that would be great. I can store the code but it is treated as text in the field .

Regards
John

Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

i do agree that it would be great to specify which custom fields to show and which not. but not sure that we will be able to implement that easily.

but once again - even if there's a link in custom field - you CANNOT click on a tool-tip, as it disappears when mouse moves. Should we change the way it's being shown? not sure.

Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

No need to change how it is shown as that is fine. I am playing around with the setting of the admin fields as i think this may work. Key is the jump triggering form the custom field entry.

Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

I have tried adding a hyperling into the custom field but it does not trigger either in the unit custom fields or as a mouse over. As a mouseover we can get to the custom field but it is shown as text so not active.

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Hyperlinks now available in the developers' branch of Wialon Hosting, meaning that they became clickable in tooltips (unit, driver, trailer), reports, and in the text of online notifications.

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Can't get into the tool tip of the vehicle to trigger the hyperlynk placed in a customefielod. Moving the mouse pointer removes the tool tip. Can move into the tool tipe if the parameter list is long. Is there anything special in the custome field eg control characher that we need to use to indicate it is a hyperlink? I can make it work if the content is say http://www.gurtam.com but pasting in a hyperling in another format, ie does not start with http, does not trigger the link.

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

JohnG, this is exactly the trick: site address should begin with HTTP or HTTPS. In this case the system will know it's a link and display it appropriately.

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

One benefit of this is that the hyperlink also shows up in the mobile application so we can extend mobile functionality as well.

Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Re: Triggering HTML or hyperlinks from custom fields

Just finished testing the linking to our content management system using the links and it works. We are now configuring the unit custom field to have a range of attached documents, eg incident forms, invoice capture, delivery docket capture, spare parts lists, operational procedures etc all with workflows attached  to ehance business operations.

Huge extension of the system capability
