I am developing a jira 4 plugin which is meant to open a dialog when you click on a web-item link that is located at the top navigation bar of an issue. It should be the same behaviour which occurs when you log work on an issue.
Placing a new web-item in the top navigation bar was no problem at all, but the linked web-work-action opens on a new page but should instead rather be shown in simple dialog.
Refering to this guide (https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Displaying+Content+in+a+Dialog+in+JIRA) which unfortunately is for Jira 5, you can add <styleClass>trigger-dialog</styleClass> to a web-item which works perfectly in Jira 5 but obviously not in Jira 4. But the behaviour described in this tutorial is exactly what I want to achieve in Jira 4.
I've also tried to add <param name="isPopupLink" value="true"/> to the web-item, as I saw this in some documentations, but it has no effect at all, which has been discussed elsewhere without any solutions to it.
I have added a web item to a web section (web section was added to opsbar-operations) and added this to the web item definition in the plugin xml:
Now when I click it opens in a dialog.
This is a little bith of a hack because JIRA uses the style class as a reference on how to open the link.. But it works and isn't so dirty.
