Drill-through with external url call

Resolved

In the old Flash-based component we used the onCellDoubleClick() js api call to send row and column information to an external url as a drill-through function.  The new HTML component has much more drill-through functionality built-in but are their api methods or an example that shows how to extend the built-in drill-through with external calls?  Is there an api call that will add an option to the cell right-click popup menu?

Hi David!
Yes, the new component is much more flexible.  
You can easily add a new option to the cell right-click please see the working sample here: 
https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/1rm53nt9/
Also, I recommend you to look at these demos:

Does it help?

Is there a reason why drill-through does not work from a cell with a custom formula?

Hello David,
Thank you for writing. For now, the component does not support the drill through for the calculated values cells. 
Please let us know if this feature is critical for you.
Kind regards,
Dmytro

The row, column and filter values would be the same for a custom formula cell vs a regular cell so I’m not understanding why drill-through is enabled on some cells but not others.    It is tough UX to work around as any pre-made reports would always have to have a simple measure added to it and then we would need to tell end-users which cells support drill-through.

Hi David!

I understand your confusion but things under the hood are a little bit more complicated and not so easy to implement.
If this feature is really critical we can add it to one of our future minor builds. Just let me know if you really need it.

Thanks,

I’m finding it difficult to work around it so I would appreciate it if you could add this as a feature.  Thanks!

I am unable to verify that this works.  None of the jsfiddle examples in the Calculated Measures section on your site seem to work.  Example:
https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/x0pe8azg/
If I right click on the non-formula cell I can see the drill-through popup.  If I right click on the formula cell I see nothing.
