    Using the SFX button to point back to a Voyager holding record

    • Article Type: General

    • Product Version: 3

    Description:
    We would like to use our SFX button differently that its intended purpose.
    We want it to point back to a Voyager holding record (we are synchronizing DTL with Voyager).
    Please let us know if this is possible; and if so, how.

    Resolution:
    You can have the link as metadata.

    Below is a summary of the changes you'll need to make in order to enable the SFX button to point to your Voyager holdings:

    1. In $dtle_root/www_r_eng/results-full-body

    <!-- START_SECTION --><!-- body-fields-link -->
    <TR>
    <TD CLASS="LabelBlueBold" nowrap valign="top">$0100</TD>
    <TD><script type="text/javascript">
    var txt = '$0200';
    document.write('http://hdl.handle.net/' + txt.replace(/^\s\s*/, ''));
    </script></TD>
    </TR>

    2. In $dtle_root/www_r_eng/js/scripts.js (add the following function)

    function open_window_uri_handle (loc)
    {
    var w = window.open ('http://hdl.handle.net/' + loc.replace(/^\s\s*/, ''),
    "winduri",
    "height=600,width=700,location=no,menubar=no,status,scrollbars,resizable"
    );
    w.focus();
    }

    Other customers took the above code and refined it further.
    You can contact Colorado State University since they did something similar based on our recommendations e.g. their bookmarkable URL http://digitool.library.colostate.edu/?func=dbin-jump-full&object_id=2610.
