Hi @all,

I think if you want to generate Links inside a tableCell, you will have to use TableViewCellRenderer.

There is an example how to use a cellRenderer in the EP in HTMLB-Reference.

Instead of using a button, how about using the HTMLB link?

Yes, Eric, thanks for the answer. in this case. I can substitute the button with a link. But

In another scenario, I have a tableview, then every cell clicked will lead to a url generated based on the content of the table cell,

for example, cell(1,2)="userABC", onCellClick() funciton will generate a Link to: "http://xxx?userid=userABC". When user clicks cell(1,2), it should go to the generated URL.

It would be great if I can generate the link then direct the browser to the URL at onCellClick().

How do I handle this case?

thanks for any suggestions.
