I’m looking for the best way to implement a breadcrumb navigational object within Ignition.
The most obvious to me seems simple enough and would involve concatenating a bunch of strings together with navigation page separators (e.g. ‘>’), all formatted using HTML styles, and having each navigation page clickable using inline HTML formatting.
Home > Fermentation > Tank Details
Using this approach however, I would need to incorporate functions into the HTML string to provide inline clickable links to navigate to other windows. Is this possible in Ignition?
Otherwise, another solution might be to have a number of button objects overlayed on top of each navigation page text, but these buttons would need to dynamically size and position themselves over each bit of text, which is easier said than done… this would involve calculating the width of each page text string in pixels and then moving and resizing accordingly. I’m not sure how to do this though, as it would need to be calculated per font, per font size, per letter.
Maybe I’m over-complicating the matter…
Any help would be appreciated!
