How to make a field whose value is a reference to open in new tab or new window

I have a field which is a reference to a record. And when this hyperlink is clicked, it should open a new tab/new window.

This is a lifesaver!

(function(skuid){

var $ = skuid.$;

$(function(){

$(‘head’).append(

$(’’)

);

});

})(skuid);

Hi Rowel. It might also be worth it to try creating a template field, or a template component that uses basic HTML and merge syntax to build a link with the correct fields. The target="_blank" attribute of the URL element would open the link in a new tab.
