Hi! Im using the Web Page Gadget on 1 of my presentations, the gadget works good! But when i make click on some link that sends me to a external web or open a new window, it stays on that windown takes all the screen. Im also try inserting the web page by HTML code but I get the same issue.

You guys may know how to block that external windows or some html code to block them.

If you're not wanting the Web Page to be interactive, you can uncheck the Interactive setting in the Web Page Widget so that pages are not brought up unintentionally.

Please let us know if you need anything further.

Thanks!

Hi Neal, thanks!

I need the Web Page interactive :/

So there is no option to prevent that?

Thanks!

It sounds like if you were to click on those links in a normal browser, it would open a new tab/window when clicked on, correct?

I haven't found a way in Chrome to prevent this from happening by using a command line switch (which would need to be done to the Player).

Is this web page built specifically for the Presentation, or is it a multi-purpose web page?

Thanks.

I have the same issue with this in my Presentation- I would like to limit the Webpage to one domain, if not able perhaps if it does open a new window open it in the back ground.. Or even keep the new window in the Widget screen.. Maybe if there is a "isInactive()" for x minutes a refresh to the original pointer website?

Thanks for any advise!

Best,

Will

I went looking and I haven't seen a way for Chrome not to open a link in a new tab/window. Its the link itself that is sending the command to use a new tab/window.

If its a new tab/window that is opened, then adding controls in the Presentation to reset itself wouldn't help since that new tab/window is still open and likely still on top.

Ideally, if the page is to be interactive, it would probably make sense that it is dedicated for the purpose of the Display, where it can have a home button provided to reset it and the links open in the same tab/window.
