Triggers – shortcuts to other documents

One of the main purposes of a Menu is to provide shortcuts to other documents. When you click a button (a menu item) in a Menu, you will very often want it to open a specific document.

This functionality is handled by Triggers in TARGIT.

To set up a trigger on a menu item, click the Add trigger option and select the document you would like to open with this trigger. Also, consider if the document should be opened with its own saved criteria only.


At this point you could replace the static Caption text with some dynamic content. Click the two curled brackets symbol next to the Caption box. In this case, we could make good use of a System variable, the Trigger – document title.


The result is, that the menu item text will automatically reflect the document title of the triggered document.
