Sometimes it is pratical to create several sets of data representing different layers of the overall object and to cross-link them so that end-users could navigate seamlessly. One way to do that in RapidCatalog is to place URL links in the DPL date and point them to the other project (representing different layer, section, etc.).
Below is a short instruction for OOTB Generic IPC speciation in the RapidCatalog:
- Open demo IPC project using the generic IPC specification component;
- Right click on DPL table header > Hidden Columns > Show All (this will display URL column);
- In the URL column insert a relative link to another published project file.
- If your project is published on the web, then you can also insert a URL link to point to that project.
In both examples #12 implies item number (as per DPL table) which will be highlighted upon project opening.
By using #view(12) code the IPC page containing that item will open upon project opening, but will not highlight item 12 specifically.
