Image as Hyperlink using Report Text?

@MarqueeCrew,

 

I have to ask nicely since everyone here is helping out in the community out of their busy hours :-)

 

Now I know why I was not able to replicate. The solution you provided works perfect for a PDF output, but it does not function in an email output, or a .html output. Not sure if it is a bug.

 

Are you also facing a similar issue when pushing the overlay to email or HTML?

@dheerajpoojari,

 

I haven't ever tried this before attempting to solve your post.  I agree that the html output doesn't create the hyperlink, or so I thought until I reviewed the HTML...

 

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Final//EN">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
	<head>
		<title></title>
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
	</head>
	<body>
		<div style="position: relative; top: 0px; left: 0px; width: 75.60pt; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.00pt; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; color: black; ">
			<div style="width: 100%; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14.00pt; color: white; "><a href="https://community.alteryx.com//" style="font-size: 12.00pt; ">Community</a></div>
			<div style="position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; width: 100%;">
				<table cellspacing="0px" cellpadding="0px" style="width: 100%;">
					<tr>
						<td style="width: 33%;">
						</td>
						<td style="text-align: center; width: 33%;vertical-align: middle; height: 16pt;"><img src="Engine_29256_bd98cb8e14ff431397b0520f115364ca__files/48d5ac17dd8f11bbc256ab4a058c7781.jpg" width="100">						</img></td>
						<td style="width: 33%;">
						</td>
					</tr>
				</table>
			</div>
		</div>
	</body>
</html>

It looks like it is there, but no hyperlink is clickable in chrome or IE.

 

I wonder if you have "GOOD" HTML, if you can use Alteryx to copy that output and to make replacements within it for your current execution to the text.  Then the images and links would be preserved from a working HTML file.

 

Cheers,

@MarqueeCrew,

 

Thanks for the direction.

 

I did some more scraping and found the <htmlpassthrough> tag. Using this tag, I was able to pass the HTML script and generate a .html file with clickable links. *HAPPY DANCE*.

 

Now that this is complete, I can finally write a post on a workflow that I was working on since long.

 

BTW, attached is the workflow which renders 4 social icons with images.

 

Regards,

Dheer
