how to open a HTML page from Mendix

Hi, I want a provision to open an HTML page which contains something like help content or some general contents from an Mendix link button.  I tried to put the .html file under my project under theme folder, but when I try to access it, it gave me file not  found 404 error. Could any one help me on this? Thanks in advance

If you want to use an existing html file then you could place this in the theme directory and then open the file with a link button making sure the target is your environment url followed by /htmlfile.html

If you are running on localhost:8080 and the file is named testMx.html the link button target should be:  http://localhost:8080/testMx.html

Using the attribute option would allow you to configure the url to make sure this will work on the different environments. Using the html/javascript widget is also a good option and would allow you to open the file in a new tab e.g.


Hi Ping,

You can use the html snippet to load the html file or just copy and paste the html into this widget.




I did try it this way.

I put a 'test.html' under: <myproject folder>/theme

And I put http://localhost:8080/test.html

But I got 404 error shown below. Is there security related to this?
