An action hotspot is text or an image that preforms an action when you click it. It works like a button, but it looks like a link (has blue underlined text). For example, you can add an action hotspot in an email that will send an auto-reply back to you.
You can create a hotspot in emails, calendar entries, to do items, and other Notes documents, but you must be in a rich-text field (a field that allows text, objects, file attachments, and pictures) to create an action hotspot.
You must be in read mode to test a hotspot.
To create an action hostpot, follow these steps:
- While creating or editing the document, select the text to act as an action hotspot.
- Click Create > Hotspot > Action Hotspot. When you do this, a programmer's pane opens at the bottom of the window.
- Click the Hotspot Info tab in the "Action Hotspot" properties box.
- If the link has to point to a certain frame, specify it in Frame (for example, Right, Left, Center).
- In the Programmer's pane, select Simple action(s) from the second list, and then click Add Action.
- Choose an action the hotspot should perform, and then click Add. For more information, see Table of simple agent actions.
- Close the "Action Hotspot" dialog box
- Click File > Save to save the hotspot's properties.
: You can specify a formula to control the action of the hotspot by clicking the formula (@) button or paste a named element from your clipboard by clicking the paste button. For more information, see the section on Formula Language in the Domino Designer Help
