Sometimes you need to reference an external resource from an item. These external references can be easily achieved by adding a URL frame to a Cradle item type. Each instance of that item type can then hold a reference to an external resource. The URL can then be opened to view it from the link element in the form.
Creating a URL Frame
While the ability to reference external resources via URL in a form is useful, you must first assign the HTML frame type to your Item Type(s).
It is very easy to do this, simply open Project Setup > Go to Item Types > Select your desired Item Type and click “Frames”. From here, create a new frame and then from the Type drop down select “HTML”.
We hope you find this useful! For information on other useful frame types see this cradle help article.
