All you're trying to do is assign a URL to text and or something similar, right? You may have overlooked the "Set URL" option within the SDP, or you may be back several revisions, that aside, it's possible to do this today.
I cannot remember when they implemented this, but I believe that as long as you're on 2.5 or above, you'll get this funcionality.
Here are two screenshots that show where it's implemented, and how it looks once it's published:
Thanks for the Feedback Dunstan,
Its good to see that the functionality is there, but for what ever reason it doesn't seem to work on our system.
I have followed the steps below and have been unable to get a valid Hyperlink to dispay on my dashboard. Hopefully you may be able to find where this is falling over if I step through it one by one.
I know what your issue is; you're previewing! The preview option just shows a preview of what it'll look like, actions like drilling into panels, double-clicking on alarms, and URL's are all disabled - it's just a visual representation of what you'll see!
Please publish your example and let me know if it works, I'm pretty confident your issue is that you've never tested this using a published dashboard. Thanks for the detailed notes and good luck!
Thanks Dustin, this is exactly what the problem was.
Thanks for your help.
