Display Mode

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

It is possible to specify the Display Mode that will be used to open the metadata.

 

The Display Mode can be configured separately for:

Map Views

Layers

Layer-Groups

Project

and WMS-Legend

Note: Please note that these settings are only considered in the WebOffice core client. In WebOffice flex client, the metadata is always displayed in the download container, regardless of this configuration option. 

 

For every metadata source you can choose between the following display modes:

Display mode IFrame: External web pages then get embedded in a WebOffice 10.8 SP2 client window. It does not matter whether a pop up blocker is active or not.

Display mode pop up: External web pages will be opened in a browser pop up window. Pop ups must then be allowed for WebOffice 10.8 SP2 client web page in order to correctly display contents of the integrated web page. You may use this option if e.g. the layout of the integrated web page does not fit to WebOffice 10.8 SP2 client.

 

Note: The way how a browser pop up opens (i.e. in a new window or in a new tab) depends on browser settings and / or security settings of the website to be opened.

With this attribute, it is possible to alternately display various coupled applications in a single browser window or display each application in a single window, so that a number of various application windows are displayed at the same time.

Note: For example, use the HTML target "to_weboffice" if you want to replace the WebOffice 10.8 SP2 client with the external application/hyperlink.

Note: If no value is specified, the given name in the configuration of the coupled application is used as identifier.
