ActionWidgets Widgets


The action-navigate widget is an action widget that sends a tm-navigate message back up the widget tree. ActionWidgets are used within triggering widgets such as the ButtonWidget.

Content and Attributes

The action-navigate widget is invisible. Any content within it is ignored.

$toThe title of the target tiddler for the navigation (if not provided defaults to the current tiddler
$scrollOptional parameter determining whether the navigation will also cause a scroll to the target tiddler (see below)

Scroll handling

The optional $scroll attribute can be set to "yes" to force scrolling to occur to bring the target tiddler into view. If set to "no" then scrolling does not occur. If the $scroll attribute is omitted then scrolling occurs unless either:

  • the control key is pressed
  • the action was initiated with the middle mouse button (if available)

Note that if navigating to multiple tiddlers at once you should use the same $scroll setting for all of them.


Here is an example of button that navigates to two different tiddlers at once:

<$action-navigate $to="ButtonWidget"/>
<$action-navigate $to="ActionWidgets"/>
Click me!

That renders as:
