MapTip: Image width [Pixel]

If the search result is also used in a MapTip and a hyperlink is configured to an image, the image size can be defined.

A Key element needs to be configured for the hyperlink in order to be able to dynamically add the value of the field configured in the key to the resulting URL used if the user clicks the button/hyperlink.

 

icon_comment

E.g. if the Base URL points to your photo upload (virtual) directory http://myserver/WebOfficeUpload and the value of field filename_physical_storage is used as a key, then the selection of a specific uploaded photo point will provide a link to the image file saved in your upload folder.

See chapter MapTip for more details about the configuration in WebOffice author standalone.

 

icon_comment

To better display long attribute values in an external window, there is a custom page provided, which can be integrated by defining internalcode/pub/custom_pages/detailResultTemplate.jsp?value= as Base URL. In this window line breaks, which are added to the attribute field via /n", are effectively displayed as such.

 

Define no base URL and provide the full URL in the key field

It is also possible to have the complete URL provided by the data field, e.g. a field named Image", containing the URL of the used image. In this case the parameters Base URL and Postfix can be left empty since all the information is provided by the field value. This option allows various types of image and path types as shown in the screenshot below.

However, currently only WebOffice flex (flash) client can automatically resolve image URLs from an image_gallery". WebOffice html and WebOffice mobile client will display a clickable hyperlink.
