My watch button doesn't work. What am I missing?

Copper Contributor

Hello all, I'm new to JSON/Sharepoint. I've pieced together a formatting that I like but I can't get the watch button to work. ChatGPT said something about a button element not able to be used to open link. But I tried a div to look like a button but it didn't work either.

 

Can anyone help me correct the code?  The code in question starts at line 250.

 

I'm trying to make this elmtype link to the $Link column.

In the below change the elmType to "a" e.g. "elmType":"a",

You may need to add some styling

{
"elmType": "button",
"attributes": {
"class": "sp-row-button ms-borderColor-blue sp-row-button ms-bgColor-purpleDark--hover ms-fontWeight-semibold ms-fontColor-black",
"href": "[$Link]",
"target": "_blank"
},

nah, it can't be that simple!!! Thank you!

 

why doesn't the button element work? am i using it wrong?

@TheRealJMartinez with the embed option you can get a video to play in a dialogue pop up

{
"elmType": "button",
"attributes": {
"class": "sp-row-button ms-borderColor-blue ms-bgColor-themePrimary ms-fontWeight-semibold ms-fontColor-white",
"title": "Watch"
},
"style": {

}
},
{

}
