Launch Function opening in new tab

I tried the following:

SubmitForm(SharePointForm1); Launch(Concatenate("https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/testsite/testsubsite/SitePages/Home.aspx?","target=%22_about%..."))

 

However, the webpage opens in a seperate browser tab as opposed to opening in the same window. How can i fix this?

 

Please advise,

Re: Launch Function opening in new tab

I had a very odd situation testing your issue. 

 

I thought that I can reproduce this issue on the very first time. When using a formula like:

 

Launch("https://google.com")

 

The browser would open a new window.

 

But with a formula similar like yours, for the first and second time I click on the button, a window pop out and ask me if I want to leave the current window, and a smaller window on the buttom asking if I want to allow this window. I click on "Always allow", and back to edit mode in PowerApps. Then I try to play this app again, and select the same button, it will directly open a new window without any warning.

 

Here is the formula I used:

 

Launch(Concatenate("https://nam.delve.office.com/",LookUp(Table1,Rating="2",Resolved),"=work"))

Notice that in Concatenate function, the formula should be:

Concatenate( String1 , String2, ... )

You do not need to use "&" operator. So your formula should be:

Launch(Concatenate("https://www.mysite.com/view_account_.aspx?accountId=",LookUp(Table1, Account = AccountSearch.Selected.Account, 'Account ID'), "target=%22_blank%22"))

 

Also, please add a Label control and set its Text property to:

Concatenate("https://www.mysite.com/view_account_.aspx?accountId=",LookUp(Table1, Account = AccountSearch.Selected.Account, 'Account ID'), "target=%22_blank%22")

To make sure that in this label, the URL is exactly the right one.
