Hi Rise Community,

We've been evaluating the Rise Vision platform for about 6 months now and are on the verge of committing to the support contract.  There is one final use-case that we are having trouble with:

Is it possible to kick up a Chrome browser from an interactive presentation on an ASUS Chromebox in kiosk mode?

The problem we are trying to solve-for is that our users want to be able to click on a button to stop watching the Rise presentation and browse to their own web-dashboards (that typically have "iFrame busters"). Since Rise presentations are wrapped in individual iFrames ... links to secured sites simply do not work by design to prevent click-jacking.

I've attempted to add the standard redirect and cause a pop-up to no avail:

Google

We've also tried a few javascript options to no avail.

Any input/advice or alternate solution would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Jeffrey,

This would have to be built within a Rise presentation, you could build a button that opens the web page in a web page widget.  But for the iframe buster part I don't really know - but you could check this article that might help.  https://community.risevision.com/rise_vision_inc/topics/web-page-widget-not-displaying-read-this

Hi Ray,

Thanks for the quick answer and apologies for the delayed response. 

I was unable to get that bit of javascript to work on the web page widget.  It seems something might be holding up the query results within Chrome or the Rise application.

However, after some further testing, I was able to get 'X-Frame-Options' secured websites to display from a link (in my Rise presentation) by forcing the href target attribute to open as what I assume is a pseudo pop-up within the iFrame:

e.g. <a href='http://google.com' target="_top">Google</a>

This is working so far .. hopefully it won't be suppressed in future builds.

Thanks Again!
