This Web Style dialog is used to define and view web publishing settings of an element or an element type. The link destination and icon settings for the selected element or element type are shown and can be defined. The hierarchy shows the effective value in bold letters and also where that value is coming from.



Web Style Dialog for an Element


View Settings

Depending on the element, the View Settings drop-down menu is enabled or disabled. When the menu is enabled, select the View Settings to which the Web Style is linked.



Link Destination

Model element information is opened in Details View by default, or in the case of subprocesses and core processes, clicking the element opens the lower level flow chart.  If you want some other view to be opened when the element is clicked, select the desired option from the Link to drop-down list. The options are:

Customized URL Clicking the element in the web client opens a page defined in the Custom URL field below
Details View Clicking the element in the web client opens the details view.
Flow Chart Clicking the element in the web client opens the flow chart containing the element. This option is available only for subprocesses, core processes, and main processes.
Information Item Clicking the element in the web client opens an information item (if any) connected to the element. In the case there are multiple information items connected to the element,  a list of those information items is opened allowing you to select the information item you want to view.
No link Nothing happens if the element is clicked in the web client.


Link Destination Opens In

Pages linked to the selected model element can be opened either in the current or new window. When "Default" is selected, the setting defined for the element type is used. Note that this setting has no effect if the link's destination is Details View or External Model.




Icon settings can be applied to element type views that support icons on flowcharts. If there are links available, they are listed and settings can be applied to each type of icon. If there are no links available, all of the "Icons" options are disabled.


Use the drop-down menus to select the settings for the icons. When "Default" is selected, the default settings are applied. You can select whether the icon is hidden, a small icon, or a large icon. With information items there is also the "Direct link to location" option, which makes the information item's icon a direct link to the information location, so the information item will be opened directly instead of the details view.



Link Placement

With Link Placement options, the link placement settings of connectors can be modified. As these options concern only connectors, they are visible only when this dialog is opened for for connectors.


Use the Link placement drop-down menu to define link placement. Select either "Default", "Transfer type", or "Name" option. To define links for empty connectors, select either "Default", "No link for empty", or "Link visible" from the Link for empty type drop-down menu.


Details View

With Details View options, it is possible to customize the list of properties and custom attributes that are shown in the Details View. Click Edit to open the Web Style Dialog for defining the customized list. This section is available only for Element Type web styles. Note that these settings override corresponding settings made in the web templates. If the element type settings use default settings, then the settings configured in the web templates are used.



If this dialog was opened for an element, the Type Style... button is available. Clicking it will open the Web Style dialog for the element type in question.
