    Link from drawing?

    johnski

      Is there a way to link a drawing such as an equipment floor plan to assets in a database to make it "Click Thru"?  I would like to create a floor plan that directly brings up the asset data when clicked on.  And what format must the drawing be in?

          Two ways I know of to do this.

           

          1. Bring in any supported image (JPG, SVG, PNG) and then put a bunch of transparent buttons on top of the image that will go to the proper record.

           

          2. Web viewer with a clickable JPG image map. This is a bit more advanced but a little cleaner on the layout.

               This could also be done with a sliced up image and html in a web viewer. Sometimes hot zones in an image map do not scale well when      zoomed.

           

          Both ways get it done.
