Open List Items in a New Window (_blank)

Have you ever needed to open a New Window when someone clicked on a Document in a Document Library or clicked on a List Item in a List? Once again, the Content Editor Web Part (CEWP) to the rescue. What follows is another Dashboard Web Part (DWP) in my series that demonstrates how to exploit this powerful Web Part.

Import my CEWP DWP onto any ListView page (like AllItems.aspx) using the following steps (see how to create a favorite link that simplifies step #3):

  1. Unzip the CEWP DWP onto your file system.
  2. Browse to the ListView page of a SharePoint List or Document Library.
  3. Replace the URL in your browser's address bar with the following text and then press (the Import ToolPane will show when the page posts back):
    javascript:MSOTlPn_ShowToolPane('5');
  4. Click the Browse... button, locate the DWP you saved in the first step, and click the Open button.
  5. Click the Upload button.
  6. Drag and drop the Web Part into the Web Zone below the existing Web Part.
  7. That's it! It works on nearly every SharePoint List Type (including Document Libraries but not Picture Libraries).

It looks something like this:

Enjoy,

<Todd />

Or you could do it by modifying a list template, as explained in a recent article that I posted over the weekend: http://andrewconnell.com/blog/archive/2005/07/20/1761.aspx

Hi, great idea, been searching for a sollution to this and finding this made me very happy.
Downloaded de dwp, installed it. Put it on a a page.
Don't know IF it works, because I don't know how to 'bind' a links list to the webpart....

Can you tell me how I do that?

Hi

Great solutions..
Can you please tell me how we can apply this to a "links for you" webpart.
Thanks
Shilpa

You don't really "bind" it to a list. You simply place the DWP onto any ListView page of any list. Follow the steps outlined in my previous blog post for how to get a ListView page into Edit mode:

Great Job utilizing the standard CEWP!! A question that I had was what kind of changes could I make to the jscript that would make this function on prehaps the 'DEFAULT.aspx' page. For example I have a links list and drop that onto the main page. I would like those items on that list to open up in a new window.

How would I go about changing the code to work with the default.aspx page? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,

In IE7 it works great! However, in Firefox a message box with the text 'undefined' is shown. Do you have any clue?
