Greetings & Happy New Year,
In the XML file I copied (epigraph.xml) the <inputs> element does not have any attributes. I added in a target attribute as you suggested, but unfortunately it had no effect. My XML is the following (I changed very little from the original file):
<tool name="GDM" id="gdm_export">
<param format="txt" name="input1" type="data" label="Send this dataset to GDM">
<!-- <validator type="unspecified_build" /> -->
<param name="REDIRECT_URL" type="hidden" value="http://lucca.cshl.edu/GDM/login_from_galaxy.php" />
<param name="DATA_URL" type="baseurl" value="/datasets" />
<param name="GALAXY_URL" type="baseurl" value="/tool_runner?tool_id=gdm_export" />
I changed the <inputs> tag to: <inputs target="galaxy_main"> ...but the entire window is replaced.
If I could control the frame, or at least open the external page in a new window, it would save some confusion and offer a more consistent experience. Currently users would need to back-back-back their browser to get to Galaxy again.
If you have any other thoughts on 1) targeting the external web page or at least 2) opening in a new window, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks very much once again,

<inputs action="http://www.flymine.org" check_values="false" method="get" target="_top">
<display>go to Flymine server $GALAXY_URL</display>
<param name="GALAXY_URL" type="baseurl" value="/tool_runner?tool_id=flymine" />
(See target="_top" on the first line which loads at the top level window).
Do you have a target specified in your tool config? To default to galaxy_main, it should just be missing.

You may do this by using the "target" attribute in your anchor tag, like so:
<a href="url" target="galaxy_main">Link text</a>
Please let me know if this doesn't work.

I have implemented a tool to export data to an external site. I used
"tools/data_destination/epigraph.xml" as a template & this works nicely. I
am simply wondering if there is a way to control the destination frame of
the external website. Currently the entire window is replaced. If possible,
I would like it to appear in the content area (galaxy_main?), similar to the
way many of the "Get Data" tools work (eg: UCSC Main).
Thanks very much,
