Tried to use location interactivity on 0.9.1, unexpectedly, click on an interactive element fails silently.
Added in Wax 6.2.0, needs integration with TileMill
Whats the correct behavior in TileMill? Opening a browser window? Or do nothing and just export correctly?
Any suggestions for opening a link in an external browser on all platforms (since it can't open in the TileMill standalone browser)?
I was told it could; check with @springmeyer and @incanus .
target="_blank" should do it if I recall correctly. Are you seeing that is not the case on linux?
A possible workaround is showing a dialog asking whether to open the link, and linking the ok button. Its not great, since it would be different behavior than on MapBox hosting.
It looks like its actually an issue in webkitgtk and probably won't get fixed any time soon https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23432
Could use window.location - I think the code way in the past had, and I think the _base attribute of the tilemill UI will make it open in a new window.
window.location does not work for me, it opens within the webview. I'll try to look back, and see what could have changed.
Location interaction, opens in new tab.
Does not work in gtk webview due to a signal bug.
Discussion in #1502
Re: the new window behavior, we should be covered on OS X per these lines.
Okay, location is now enabled in TileMill thanks to @aibram's pull request landing in #1542. The issue of how handling of a popup or new window behaves when TileMill is used not from a browser but from a native wrapper is a separate issue and can be handled at #1421. closing.
