I added an L.EasyButton to my map. Now I want it - by clicking - to open a new tab with a specific address.

I tried this but it did not work:

L.easyButton, function(btn, map){

Any ideas?


Are you using a different language than JavaScript? Your code syntax seems weird.

You would simply do something like:

L.easyButton('fa-globe', function () {

  • This still won't open a new tab in every case. To specify the target as a new tab, you have to provide _blank as a second argument to window.open. Like window.open("http://www.website.com/page", "_blank"); Nov 25 '15 at 13:32
  • Thank you for pointing out. Any example when it would not open a new window / tab? It seems it should be the default behaviour.

  • Interestingly, I could not come up with a valid case, as _blank seems to be the default behaviour indeed. It seems like, I mixed it up with the anchor element's target property, for which _self is the default value. Nov 25 '15 at 14:02
