I have a strange issue, basically, I have the following custom action:

      Title="Navigate to:"
    <UrlAction Url="javascript:window.location='{SiteUrl}/_layouts/Pages/InterPage.aspx?listid={ListId}&amp;itemid={ItemId}&amp;source='+window.location" />

Based on content type this custom action appears in DisplayForm, but the problem is when i click it, it does'nt redicrect to another "InterPage.aspx", the page just refreshes and that is it ...

Any idea what the problem could be?

Note: it is for sharepoint 2007

  • Its seem to work on 2010.strange issue in 2007. but can you try this : <UrlAction Url="javascript:void(window.location.href='{SiteUrl}/_layouts/Pages/InterPage.aspx?listid={ListId}&amp;itemid={ItemId}&amp;source='+window.location)" /> Commented Apr 17, 2013 at 8:05

Try using window.loaction.href in UrlAction for redirecting.

  • i tried, but it is still the same behaviour :( no success

  • When you click on that button, there is no change in your page URL right? It means UrlAction is not called. Else if changed try navigating to any test page.

  • Try this..<UrlAction Url="javascript:void(window.open('google.com','_blank'))">

  • Then use _self instead of _blank.

I solved the issue having the following url:

 <UrlAction Url="javascript:function GoToUrl(){var site='{SiteUrl}';var item='{ItemId}';var list='{ListId}';window.location.href=site+'/_layouts/Pages/InterPage.aspx?list='+list+'&amp;ID='+item};GoToUrl();return false;"/>
