Ability to define hyperlink on diagram elements

0 votes

Within the context of plantuml diagram rendered in SVG, it would be nice to provide the ability to attach hyperlink to diagram elements (i.e. component, interface, class, group, actor, state...). This feature would help to navigate/browse thru complex system architecture described in several plantuml diagrams.

Of course such hyperlink definition would have no effect on jpeg ouptut image diagram generation.

Links are rendered with "target='_top'". While this is sometimes nice, it is not always what I need. Could this be made configurable?
There is a (not very documented) setting "svgLinkTarget".
For example:

skinparam svgLinkTarget foo
:foo1 [[http://www.google.com]] end;

Is this what you are looking for ?
Yes, that's it. Thanks!
