Google map link – IBM Connections Profile customization

Tomorrow I will give a session at the Dominopoint Days in Milano on customizing IBM Connections and there I will show a simple Profile customization example.

In this example I added a home address as link which will open the address on Google maps

How to do this is pretty simple, create a resource bundle for your labels, check out profiles-config.xml and add the attribute to profiles-config.xml and profiles-types.xml.
Now open profileDetails.ftl and here you have to add the magic:

<@util.renderProperty ref=”homeaddress” nlsBundle=”belsoft” nlsKey=”label.belsoft.homeAddress”
hideIfEmpty=true ;  ref, dataId, dataKey, nlsKey, nlsBundle>
<tr>
<th scope=”row”><@util.renderNls nlsKey=nlsKey nlsBundle=nlsBundle/></th>
<td><p>
<a target=”_blank” href=”http://google.com/maps?q=<@util.renderValue ref=ref/>” >
<@util.renderValue ref=ref/> </a>
</p></td></tr>

 

Enjoy.

Nice. Will you submit this for the Connections app dev contest (http://connectionscontest.openntf.org)?

Too bad I cannot make Dominopoint this year. Enjoy.
