The Hyperlink Widget allows you to navigate to a station ord, hyperlink, or external hyperlink. If you set the Ord binding, then the ord value is displayed as the link, which updates in real-time. Alternatively, set the hyperlink text value and this value will be displayed as the link. When combined with our dashboard templates, your PX pages can easily navigate to other dashboard links. And you can also use a file like an image for the background. More info below:

self - URL replaces the current page NOTE: this one is not used, but can be set if needed.
Set this to cursor or unset.
