Rich Widgets PopUp Editor Opening New Screen Instead Of Pop Up
Application Type
Traditional Web
Service Studio Version
11.10.4 (Build 36717)
Platform Version
11.10.2 (Build 25738)

Hi, I have configured my popup editor exactly as described in the Create And Use A Pop Up for a traditional web app documentation however, when I  click the link that should open the pop-up overlay, I am being navigated to the pop-up as a web-screen.

Can anyone help me with this?


Hello Justin,

Hope you're doing well.

Please validate these couple things on your code.

1) The Method of your button / link should be set to Navigate:

2) You are giving a Name to your button / link and passing the correct LinkOrButtonWidgetId for your Popup_Editor:

Please refer to attached OML file with an example.

Hope that this helps you!

Kind regards,

Hi Rui, thanks for this. After putting the PopUp Editor RichWidget right next to my link, it works as expected. It should be stated in the documentation that this is necessary. Thanks!!

Hello again Justin,

Glad that I could help you! :)

Please consider to mark above answer as a solution.

Kind regards,

Rui Barradas


Hi Justin,

Make sure that your popup screen is inside Layouts/LayoutPopup and the button/link which triggers popup is of type navigate.

Thanks and Happy Coding!!
