    in to a relative url when it is already there. For example:
    
    html returned from cognos and displayed in standard UI:
    <span onclick="window.open('/openpages/myCustom.jsp','window
    name',
    'height=800,width=900,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes');
    return" false;="">Custom jsp;
    
    url displayed in the TFUI
    <span
    onclick="window.open('/openpages/openpages/myCustom.jsp','window
    name',
    'height=800,width=900,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes');
    return" false;="">Custom jsp;

Problem conclusion

  • Clicking on an anchor tag returned by a computed field, which
    has an href (as opposed to an onclick event) does not work in
    the Task Focused UI.
    There was an onclick that opened the url in a new window, but
    there was also an href="#", which was sending the user to the
    dashboard.
    We fixed this by not preventing the default, etc, if there is no
    onclick.
    
    Customers should download OpenPages 8.2 from Passport Advantage.
    See the following document for details on obtaining OpenPages
    8.2:
