Adding URL/path link to Point Object

  • 1.  Adding URL/path link to Point Object

    Hi all,

    One of my client would like to add an hyperlink to a file (jpeg/.mp4). is that possible in MIPro beside copy/pasting manually the link?

    Is there an extension that could do the trick?

    Guillaume

    Hi Guillaume,

    Does the Hotlink functionality do what you need?  It uses a filename / URL in an attribute column, when the user clicks on the feature in a map window with the hotlink button (from MAP > Map Tools > Hotlink) the file or website opens.

    There is a video showing how that works here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evJGS7Moods

    Thanks for the recommendation, that was indeed what I advise my client right off the bat.

    With thanks
