I have created a PDF report with Jasper and I am opening the report in my browser and when I click on the link embedded in the report that I thought would open the link in a new tab it actually loads the link right on the tab I am on. I was hoping the target of Blank would cause the link to load in another tab (I tested this in Chrome on the Mac and IE10 on Windows 7).
From what I read in the Jasper documentation, I thought BLANK would open a new tab in my browser.
Here is my code:
<textField hyperlinkType="Reference" hyperlinkTarget="Blank"> <reportElement x="0" y="5" width="100" height="15"/> <textFieldExpression class="java.lang.String">"Click here"</textFieldExpression> <hyperlinkReferenceExpression>"http://www.google.com"</hyperlinkReferenceExpression> </textField>
Has anyone had any luck getting this to work in PDF generated with JasperReports?
Any help would be appreciatied.
The answer is written in the old ticket in the Tracker.
So it looks like it is not possible with a PDF generated document that is opened in the browser to open a link in a new tab.
Thanks for the feed back.
