Description

Attributes

  • dir (optional) - the name of the directory within the grails app to link to
  • file (optional) - the name of the file within the grails app to link to
  • absolute (optional) - If set to "true" will prefix the link target address with the value of the grails.serverURL property from Config, or http://localhost:<port> if no value in Config and not running in production.
  • base (optional) - Sets the prefix to be added to the link target address, typically an absolute server URL. This overrides the behaviour of the absolute property, if both are specified.
