Custom Java Issue

Question asked by Marissa Zelmanowicz on Apr 8, 2016

Hi Everyone,

 

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a minor problem we are having. We use custom Java to add an extra icon on the global navigation that acts as our Helpful Links tab.  Prior to switching over to the new user interface, the code worked perfectly. Depending on the role of the user it would display a different set of links and when clicked the links would open up in a new browser. Since the change to the new UI, the links no longer open in a new window. Currently, we have asked everyone who is bothered by the lack of this ability to right-click on the link.   While I know this is a minor issue and that there are workarounds, we would like to fix it if possible.  I have tried looking at the javascript using my basic understanding and experience with the language, and cannot figure out the appropriate location to edit the code to make this change. I was wondering if any of you incredibly smart people in the Canvas Community might be able to help.  I have added the code below. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Marissa
