The Open URL Action Node can be used to
- Opening external URLs / links
- Opening another App / internal URL
- Downloading files
Apply the URL in setting URL. Optionally, you may add parameters to the URL using the Query Parameters. Normally, you would also tick the option Open in new window when opening external URLs.
In this case, you may refer to the App URL without a full hostname in the URL. For example, when opening another app with a readable ID
company-administration, you may simply set the URL setting to
/company-administration. The normal case for such navigation is to open in the same window, in other words, do not tick the Open in new window.
In this case, you have a Data Source containing a file (document or image) you want to download. All File Object Classes in Appfarm have a built-in property File Content. As you may have noticed, the Data Type of this property is an Internet URL. In the Open URL action node, you may simply data-bind to File Content property of your Data Source to the URL setting. You would typically tick the Open in new window, but in most browsers, it will just download the file regardless of this setting.
