Link destination on text panels

Hi,


I'm designing a text panel which is basically a link to a Google form. I want it being opened on a web browser because panels are too small for that. However, when I use the tag target="_blank" in the text, it's not working. The link is opened inside the panel. Can this be done?


Thank you.

  • Hello Joseph,


    It is not possible to open a webbrowser from out a panel. What might work is to make a large panel and implement in this panel a web panel or text panel with an iframe.

    Can you try this?

    I hope this will work for you.

    Kind regards,

  • I already tried, but when the Google form is open in a panel, the user can't interact with it, it appears like a static image. Is that possible? I have activated the rights for Support if you want to have a look.


    Thank you.

  • Hello Josep,


    Sorry I overlooked in your previous post that it is an form which needs to be interactive.

    I think it is not possible to have an interactive page within a project.

    Let me check with my colleagues next week. I will get back to you about this.

  • Hi Josep,


    It is possible to have an interactive page! The key is to make use of an web panel intead of a text panel. Also, sometimes you need to make sure you can scroll correctly (if needed), otherwise the page cannot be used as desired.

    Maybe the tip from Godelief about using a web panel is interesting for you https://community.tygron.com/forum/discussion/321/web-panel-for-more-information/p1?

  • Hi,


    I have to say that Google forms don't work with web panels. It works if I open it in web browser but don't inside Tygron.


    Best wishes,

  • I will ask my colleague to take a look in the project. I know you have changed the settings so we can entre teh project, but what is the name of your project?

    Kind regards,

    The panel is already created with the Google form link set up.


    Thank you!

  • Hi @jpueyo,


    Thanks for sharing the project.

    I had a look into your project and you are right, it seems that it is not possible to fill in the Google Form in a web panel. Other forms do work.

    We will look into this bug and let you know when there is an update. For now, there is no workaround but opening the Google Form in another browser.

  • What other forms work? Survey123 from ArcGIS works? I can use that or others instead of Google forms, I don't mind.


    Thank you.

  • Hi @jpueyo,

    I meant other forms such as contact forms on a website that do work. I haven't yet tested any other survey tools. Maybe you can try it yourself and let us know if Survey123 works?

  • Survey123 from ArcGIS neither works.


    I'll think about creating a web survey.


    Thank you.

  • Thanks for testing! When there is an update about this bug, we will let you know.

  • Hello @jpueyo ,


    I have some additional information about this topic from my colleague that I would like to share with you to give a little bit more context about why this may work or not:


    Although we do support HTML5 in all our Panels, some more complex tools may not function in our environment in the same way as in common browsers. Google Forms is an example of very complex coding which has proven to be untested in our software. However, this does not preclude the use of forms in general. For example, the contact form at https://www.tygron.com/en/request_information/ is fully functional. Our recommendation for now would be to either explore alternative services providing forms, or to construct your own.
