How to open a new tab display a specific form when click a button

Jump to solution
Hi expert,

I have created a button display option on SD.open.interaction form to run a SM scripts (RAD scrip.execute as mentioned in tailoring help topic).

I created 2 scripts and attached a form and a display screen to those 2 scripts. New display screen contain only button Back to return to original SD.open.interaction form.

2 button works fine but it never open a new tab like when you click from Menu Navigator, just change from SD.open.interaction to new form then back to SD.open.interaction on the same tab. I even tried to ticked Open a new window on Display screen definition but it just open a new window on the window client not the web.

Could you please give me some advices to make the button open a new tab instead of staying on the the same tab?

On the display option record there is a place to do this. Look at the RAD tab and there is a place for "seperate thread?". Enter true here.

Tabs in hpsm are "threads" so any time you want a tab to come up when something is clicked, then you use the thread option.

Sorry, I tried again and it did open new tab. Thanks a lot. Last time I have some trouble with variables so it didn't open.

Hi JWRobertson,

You're welcome :).

I have one more question. I want to display a new tab in ESS GUI but it seems that ESS allow only 1 thread per user session.

I tried add field and button on form ess.SD.open same as SD.open.interation form still have open a new thread. But when I click the button,it doesn't open a new tab, everything on the same tab. When I click Back, it close ess.SD.open form and return form to choose Open new request or Search knowledge base,.... I think that there is only 1 thread on a ESS session.

Do you know how to enable 2 or a specific amount of thread per ESS session ?
