[EP-tech] ScreenProcessor.pm and Admin Screen Messages

Hi All,

I have a button on the admin screen that does something when clicked. Then
at the top of the screen a message appears upon completion to provide a url
for the user to follow (or that is the plan). It usually present a plain
text message, but I want a clickable link. At the moment users would need
to copy the message text and paste it into the address bar.

At the moment I can have either text or a link that can't be seen or
clicked, but shows up when you inspect the page.

Here is my code that I've adapted (only the bit in bold is really relevant):

sub add_result_message

{

        my( $self, $ok ) = @_;


        if( $ok )

        {

                #$self->{processor}->add_message( "message",

                        #$self->html_phrase( "aam_link" ) );

#$self->{processor}->add_message(

#"message",

#$self->{repository}->make_text( "Please go to https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=www.google.co.uk&data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cf8892e5cc15642ed73f608d71f2d1168%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&sdata=LSWbmVAu3jFIh4QPFpmmDBobJSrKla6lTzCqcrAoWPo%3D&reserved=0 to access
the AAM Updates.")

#);

#my $messagelink =

* my $uri = "https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=www.google.co.uk&amp;data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cf8892e5cc15642ed73f608d71f2d1168%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&amp;sdata=LSWbmVAu3jFIh4QPFpmmDBobJSrKla6lTzCqcrAoWPo%3D&amp;reserved=0 <https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.co.uk&amp;data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cf8892e5cc15642ed73f608d71f2d1168%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&amp;sdata=uJfri4MRkKhk7o%2BqLVx0LlJJG709BSzb40AdooKui4U%3D&amp;reserved=0>";*

* $self->{processor}->add_message( "message",*

* $self->{repository}->make_text( *

* $self->{session}->render_link( $uri ))*

);

        }


Is there a way that I can alter this to show a clickable text link or am I
going to need to go further down the EPrints Rabbit Hole? My alternative
approach is to alter render_messages in ScreenProcessor.pm, but I don't
really want to do that and I also don't know how to make a local archive
copy of this file either as it's a few levels up from the plugins directory.

Any suggestions or alternative approaches are very welcome.

Thanks,
James
