      Hi Priya,

      You can try to set the Link To property using the expression <%FilePath%>. This will allow you to open the document right from qListView, without being redirected to another page.

      Hello Yuan,

      Thank you for your response. I have tried using the expression <%FilePath%> in the display fields "Link to" property. But it did not work. Can you  please quote me an example for it.

      Regards,

      Hello Yuan,

      Thank you for trying it for me. I am using some pdf, excel, doc, docx.  I am getting these libraries from different site cllections.  I used <%FilePath%>. in the name column , whenever I click on the Name column it takes me to the home page but not to the source document. I tried this even in the same site collection with different document libraries. I am using Explict option in display properties window. Is there any issue with it. Please let me know your ideas on it.

      Regards,

      Priyasaki

      Hi Priya,

      Here is an example of qListView configured to a document library "Shared Documents", with the "Name" field configured to open the documents using Link To.

      <Lists>

        <List SiteUrl="http://win2k8-yl:18150/subsite" ListName="Shared Documents" />

      </Lists>

      <Fields LookupThresholdControlSetting="Default">

        <Field Name="Name" LinkTo="&lt;%FilePath%&gt;"/>

        <Field Name="Title"  GroupExpanded="false" />

        <Field Name="ID" />

        <Field Name="Created" />

      </Fields>

      You can find details about this in our help document, under the qListView -> Link To section.

      Please let us know your SharePoint and Quest Web Parts version in case you cannot make this work.

      Thanks,

      Yuan

      Hello Quest Communites,

      I am using “Qlistview” web part. We have configured qlistview to get the documents from different document Libraries to roll up onto a single web part and I can’t find any option to enable the user to open the documentwhen they double click the document. Instead we can go to “View properties” in context menu. Is there any configuration we have to set to enable the user to open the document right way when they double click it on the qlistview web part.

      Please anyone let me know. I have tried using “Link to” property but it seems that it is directing me to the doc library but I wanted to open the document on double click of row in the grid.

      Regards,

      Priyasaki

      Hello Yuan Liang,

      Thank you for the reply. I have tried the above way for a single list. It works fine. I am trying to do it on a Roll up of qlistview web part but it does not work out. Please find the configuartion below for a roll up.

      <Lists>

        <List SiteUrl="http://abc.com/mkt/us/busseg/gfs/pricing/SitePages/Home.aspx" ListName="xyz" />

        <List SiteUrl="http://abc.com/mkt/can/busseg/gfs/pricing/SitePages/Home.aspx" ListName="xyz" />

        <List SiteUrl="http://abc.com/mkt/lon/busseg/gfs/pricing/SitePages/Home.aspx" ListName="xyz" />

        <List SiteUrl="http://abc.com/mkt/wrs/busseg/gfs/pricing/SitePages/Home.aspx" ListName="xyz" />

      </Lists>

      <Fields LookupThresholdControlSetting="Explicit">

        <Field Name="Type" GroupExpanded="false" />

        <Field Name="Name" GroupExpanded="false" LinkTo="&lt;%FilePath%&gt;" />

        <Field Name="Modified" />

      </Fields>

      Kindly let me know if we have to do any other setting for it. We are on sharepoint 2010 and Quest 5.7 with hot fix of "Explicit" option quoted above for the List view threshold value.

      Regards,

      Priyasaki

      Hello Priya,

      Your configuration looks correct, there isn't any other setting that needs to be changed. I tested qListView configured to multiple document libraries (with .docx, pdf, xls, jpg, xml files) and Link To is working is working fine in a 5.7 SP2010 environment.

      What is the type of your document, and what kind of behavior do you see? Is the link not working at all, or are you being taken to another page? Also what is your IE version?
