Window title displaying thread name instead of 'Open URL' name



The user is opening a new window to stream PDF bytes. But the the Window Title displays the thread name and NOT the "Window Name" specified in the Open URL in Window form.

The behaviour is same in both IE and Chrome.


Error Messages

No error messages. 

Steps to Reproduce

1. Configure the on-click action of  any control to use "Open URL in Window"
2.  Add a property or simply a string and notice the window heading/title. 

Root Cause

The window name field in the "Open URL in Window" configuration is actually not the html <title> tag. It is rather the of html.
Hence this field cannot be used to set the pop up window title.


Create a RULE-OBJ-HTML instance and set the html <title> element by a property reference.
This html rule can be invoked from the activity referred in the "Open URL in Window" .
