I would like to jump in one project back to the page I came from. E.g.: Page 4 is Detail view and I can come to there from side 1, 2, and 3 (all different). Is it possible that I can jump back to side 1 or 2 or 3 in relation of where I clicked to the link?
You can make this happen with some custom events. I use two: the first remembers what page you came from, and the second will return you to that page. I have these two custom events setup in just a tiny square that I put on the master page of my plot:
So to actually use them, just call “setReturnToPage” before you go to page 4. Then call “returnToPage” when you want to go back. Works great!
thanks for the quick answer.
As I am quite unfamiliar with creating custum events, please allow me some questions:
I have to create the custom events on the masterpage as page action?
I tried it, and I get
Where do I have to call (with what event) the returnToPage thing?
Hope my question is understandable.
Yep, you can put the custom events on the master page as a page action, that should work fine.
You need to call “setReturnToPage” right before going to the common page. So if you had a button on page 1 that was taking the user to page 4, in the actions for that button you would have:
1) Trigger “setReturnToPage” custom event
2) Go to page 4
You’d want to do that same thing every time you are going to page 4, the common page.
Then on page 4, if you had a button that would take you back to whatever page you started from, the actions would look like this:
1) Trigger “returnToPage” custom event
That’s it! I submitted a quick working example to the “Resource Sharing” section of ForeUI; whenever it gets approved, you should be able to find it there to refer to.
Many Thanks! Works in my example.
Only one more question: Where can I find the “Recource Sharing” section of ForeUI?
It’s a button in the lower-left corner of the ForeUI window, under “Manage Categories”.
Thanks Mark, your solution is quite good. Thanks for the contribution 🙂
