Working with Links

In UltraDev, you can create links by using the Property inspector or the Make Link option of the Modify menu. You can also use the site map to view, create, and manage links. With these visual tools, you can specify the exact location of a file without having to type the complete path of the file. You can also create e-mail, null, and script links. An e-mail link allows you to open an e-mail program. The feedback sections that you find on Web sites usually contain an e-mail link. When you click the link, an e-mail program opens up automatically, bearing the recipient’s name. A null link allows you to attach behaviors to text. For example, if you want introduce sound effects when a user clicks a text element on your document, you can attach a null link to the text and then attach the Play Sound behavior to the text. You can use a script link to perform form validations and other processing tasks by calling JavaScript code. For example, when a user clicks a link to visit a page that requires a plug-in to run, you might want to display a message that informs the user that a plug-in needs to be installed. To do this, you can create a script link, which calls the JavaScript code that informs the user about the plug-in requirement.

Creating a Link with the Property Inspector

To create a link to another document from any element in the current document, such as text, an image, or an object such as date, select the element and choose Window, Properties. The Property inspector is displayed as shown in Figure 10.2. In the Link text box of the Property inspector, specify the location of the target document. Choose an option from the Target drop-down list to indicate where the document will be loaded.
