I'm creating a GUI Extension with the Alchemy4Tridion framework and want to open a popup. The problem is the popup file is installed in assets/popup.html by Alchemyand not assets/views/popup.html. How do I get the file to be deployed to the /assets/views/ folder?

My file structure is /Static/Scripts/Command.js and /Static/Views/popup.html. In the Views folder I have a popup.html file.

In my ResourceGroup.cs file I have the following:


In the Commands.js file, execute function I use the following to open the popup:

 var itemId = selection.getItem(0);
 var url = "${ViewsUrl}popup.html?item=" + itemId,
 popup = $popup.create(url, "menubar=no,location=no,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,status=no,width=405,height=180", null);
  • Not sure if it`s a problem for your requirements, but I wrote a quick article on reusing a popup for an A4T Command.js otherwise if you click the button that opens a popup, you get a new one every time you click the button. tridionted.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/…

It appears that Alchemy does not yet pick up HTML files. Try creating it as an ASPX file instead. Static HTML files are often cached a little too aggressively by the browsers anyway, so you might want to avoid them in any case if you plan to do anything dynamic in it.
