One of the anoying things about Sharepoint is that all links open in the same window, and sometimes we forget and close the window . . . well there are a few solutions to enable a link to open in a new window.
This tip is about clicking in a hyperlink in a list web part and open it in a new window:
Using the Frontpage 2003 we can make changes to particular webparts, therefore:
- Open the Web page containing the List View in FrontPage 2003
- In Design View right-click the List View Web Part and select Covert to XSLT Data View from the context menu
- Switch to Split View and locate the generated XSLT code …
- Change the code
Another way to achieve this is by changing the RenderPattern element in the FLDTYPES.xml file, but this changes the behavior for all Lists throughout SharePoint.
