Pop up window in Gallery with Browser tool

5 - Atom

Want to check how to have pop up window in Gallery with Browser tool. It works in my Analytical App but not in my Gallery. There is only a 'success' message after running the app in the Gallery. 


Similar question as been asked before.

I dont think a pop up window similar to Designer is possible on the Gallery. Some of things you can try:-


1. Write to output.yxdb and show that at the successful execution of an App.

2. Use Chained Apps for the second to show the output



Hope this helps.

Hi Jagdeesh,


Thanks for the response. I want a non-Alteryx user to see the out put directly in Gallery. Don't think the method you suggested can remediate the issue.

Hey @Jonnyldn 

From what I understand, this is ignored in the server environment.


It may be worth logging this as an idea in the server ideas section:*/idb-p/server-ideas

Based on your question, I think there's 2 solutions for that.


1.- instead of using an browser tool, you can use and output tool and save the output to an excel file or any other one (PDF, etc). With this approach you will see the output file in the gallery and you will be able to download it from the Gallery

Designer View



Gallery Output




2.- The second option is adding a render tool to preview the data in the Gallery Window. The only issue I have noticed with this approach is that big dataset won't be completely shown. **Notice I'm using file format as .pcxml


Designer View




Gallery Output




Using .pcxml as output will allow you to download the data from the gallery in various formats.


Hope this helps
