A.10.1.18 View Datalink Table

Configuration for View Datalink Table action

Configuration for View Datalink Table action

The View Datalink Table action is for tables with a column containing URLs that point to files in the {links}-response table format defined by the DataLink standard. Activating a row with this action defined will retrieve the DataLink file from the given URL and display it in a new popup window. The display is the same as that of the DataLink Window, except that in this case the DataLink table has not been loaded into the TOPCAT application as a new table. Refer to the documentation of that window for more details.

Configuration:

Datalink Location
Gives the URL or filename of the DataLink table for each row. This is normally one of the table columns and can be selectd from the drop-down list, but alternatively the expression language may be used to assemble a location string from other columns.
