Note  For a description and a complete list of UI Objects, see UI Objects.

A button used to navigate to another page, a pop-up, or an external Web page. It has several colors (depending on the skin) and four different sizes:

  • link (standard size)
UI Object link.png
  • linkmini (medium size)
UI Object linkmini.png
  • linkmicro (small size)
UI Object linkmicro.png
  • dlink (big size)
UI Object dlink.png

For a custom image version, see ImageLink.


  • id: the object's ID, used by UISets. Required
  • position: the object's position. Use the pixels or rows and columns coordinates format
  • color: the color of the button. It can assume any of the skin's color values (E.g. for the "blue" skin, the possible values are: b - blue; g - green; gr - gray; r - red; y - yellow; glass)
  • link: the name of the destination page associated to the button. It is possible to specify an absolute or relative URL in the link parameter. The tag will work as an <A HREF> tag, loading the new page. If the URL is prefixed with "!", the page will open in a new tab or window. If the loaded page is an HSYCO menu, the back link will show up in the menu page, to reload the referrer page. It is also possible to use the special keywords "$__urlkey;" and "$__query;" that will be replaced with the URLKey and URL query string (if present, including the leading "?" character). You can also set this parameter to "back", "forward" or "logout". "back" moves back to the previous page in the pages navigation history, and can also close the current pop-up. "forward" moves forward in the pages navigation history. "logout" closes the session and reverts to the login page
  • label: the text label on the button. It can contain HTML tags


(link[!<id>] <pos>; <color>; <link>; <label>)

(linkmini[!<id>] <pos>; <color>; <link>; <label>)

(linkmicro[!<id>] <pos>; <color>; <link>; <label>)

(dlink[!<id>] <pos>; <color>; <link>; <label>)


(link!link1 x10y20; r; page1; Page 1)

(linkmini r0c1; glass;; hsyco)

(linkmicro x0y100; gr; /hsycohsyco/office; HSYCO Office)

(dlink!dlink1 x10y10; b; page1; Larger text<br>with <b>HTML</b> tags)
