To Include a Back Button

Once the hyperlink is opened, it will navigate the user to the chosen page. However the 'back' button won't be present. To create a 'back' button functionality, it requires using javascript.

Following the steps outlined above, when configuring the code for Step 5, enter the code as per example below:

<a href="javascript: void(0); return false;" onclick="historyManager.updateAndSubmit(APP_PARAMS['contextPath']+'< url path of functionality to be displaed in tile >;');"> Custom text to display as Hyperlink</a>

NOTE: This javascript 'back' function acts differently depending on the browser being used:

  • Firefox: Will create a back button with no additional functions.
  • Chrome: Will create a back button, however hyperlink will also open a new blank tab.
  • Internet Explorer: Will create a back button, however hyperlink will also open a new tab.
