Hyperlinks, events, scripts

Post by saxodreng »

Hi,

I am new to Wysiwyg website builder and for that matter website building.

I want to make a management website that acts as a menu for me internally.

The idea was to make a visualized menu over the infrastructure location of racks, switches, Servers and so on.

The menu is designed like the racks with icons of the content.

my challenge is now how to link the icons to:

webpages like ILO2 & ILO4 for HP - only to be started in fx. the old Internet explorer - like https://10.10.10.10
external exe: putty.exe -ssh admin@10.10.10.10
external exe: Powershell.exe

I have spent hours trying, searching the forum, google and so on - it just seems to me that it is not just that easy with Wysiwyg Website Builder.

Can anyone help with a "How To" ??

Thanks in advance

Regards
TT

In HTML, it is not possible to trigger an external application.
It is not a limitation of WWB, but browser do not allow this for security reasons.

Yes, you can run JavaScript: Set the event action to 'run JavaScript'

You asked:

The answer is yes you can run JavaScript via events.
The exact code depends on what you are trying to do. There is no generic answer for that.

However you cannot run executables. This is not allowed by browsers.

Note that using JavaScript requires some programming knowledge, this is not something I can teach you.
All scripts are different so there is no generic way to describe for how to use all scripts.
But this may be helpful:

If you need further assistance then please describe what kind of code and files you have.

As already mentioned you can use the following https://www.wysiwebbuilder.com/add_html.html You can also insert the code in Page HTML and for external files you can use the File Publisher Object. You should also note that generally there is no help/assistance with using code or external scripts as it is understood if you wish to use you yourself understand how to use and how and where to insert correctly for it to work.

FWIW:
In the Event window > Javascript: you could enter e.g. nameofjavascript function();

Then in the Page HTML > Before </body> e.g. you could have:
<script type="text/javascript">
function nameofjavascript()
{

your javascript code

}
</script>

I hope you can bear some learning from w3schools. https://www.w3schools.com/js/default.asp
this will give you basic knowledge on how things function and work even with events.

I got the impression that the OP already knows Javascript.

Thanks for taking your time to answer - although I think you read my post as a hardcore programmer and not as a user.

My challenge is not the scripts, but the understanding on how to use them with WWB.

I've put a simple javascript in a subfolder in where my final HTML file will be - the script executes notepad.exe

in object properties --> event --> onclick - action: Javascript - then what - nowhere to link to external javasript files only just a few pre-defined commands. I can although type in something, but what is the format here? - (i am new to this)

In File publisher I can add files an folders to the project, but how to link to those from objects ??

Please someone !!

Thanks in advance

Enter the name of the JavaScript function in the input field. The choices in the drop down menu are just suggestions....

Also, if you are using an external file for the script then you also need to add a include link to the script. But of course this is not specific to the software.

Your script links the file to the object, this is not difference than in any other web designs tools.

In my opinion, you are over thinking this.
WYSIWYG Web Builder is design tool that generates standard HTML code, so all code that works elsewhere will also work in WWB.
