HTML Includes in text area

Is anyone aware of a way to include or reference an html file in a text area I'm looking for away to have a central file for our header and accordion menu that will be used across multiple tabs and DXP files. I'm able to reference a central css file, but haven't been able to figure out how to do this with HTML.

Appreciate any help.

Hi there,

One way to do this inside Spotfire would be to use an iframe html tag which you can then style to take up the maximum width/height of the text area. I have done this in the past to show other web pages inside Spotfire to give context to data and stories.

An alternative routewouldbe to embed your Spotfire tools inside a parent web page and control the Spotfire tool's using the Web Player Javascript API (if need be). For instance, these tools have a generic header in a web page, and then the Spotfire tool is embedded in the page below:


Hope this helps.

I'm not sure about HTML include either, but I would suggest creating a Javascript you can add to a text area that would build your menu in a . That should minimlize the work of creating new HTML for each accordian instance.


It doesn't seem as simple as Including CSS or JS is simple with Text Areas:

//required css and js resources


var css1 = "//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css"


$("", { "rel": "stylesheet", "type": "text/css", "href": css1 }).appendTo("head")

You can also use aPython script that would can add/replace the HTML to the Text Area.

from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import HtmlTextArea

vis = ta.As[HtmlTextArea]()

vis.HtmlContent = '''Test '''
