How to connect hyperlink on Dashboard/iPad?

Hello,

I've just started to use Data Dashboard for LabVIEW on iPad this week. Now, I would like to ask how to connect the hyperlink; normal website at Dashboard? I've seen at the first page of Tutorial3, "Run the dashboard..." text connects to NI website. I tried from adding text on my dashboard page and select "http://", and typed target weblink or ni.com for testing, however, even after run the dashboard, nothing is happened(of couse, the iPad is under perfect internet connection environment).

Could you explain how to make the hyper link?

iOS 7.1.2, Data Dashboard 2.2

If you run the dashboard and then tap on the hyperlink it should take you to a browser app with the link that you configured.

You have to edit the properties for the link object first. You do that by selecting it (while the dashboard is not running) and tapping on the properties toolbar button (the gear icon, just to the left of the run button). That will show a popup with a list of property categories. One of the categories is called "Hyperlink". Choose that category and you will see a switch to enable or disable the hyperlink and (when it is enabled) a field to type in a URL. Once you have entered a URL in that field then you can run the dashboard, and tapping on the hyperlink should now take you to the URL you entered.

There are many editable properties in Data Dashboard. Each type of control has a different set of editable properties, including the canvas/dashboard (you can see these by tapping on properties with nothing selected).
