Is there any way to make force:navigateToSObject event to open sObject in new tab?


Yes, You can navigate to new tab using-

<aura:handler event="force:navigateToSObject" action="{!c.navigateToRecord}"/>

navigateToRecord : function(component , event, helper){
    window.open('/' + event.getParam('recordId'));  
  • From where do you fire this event? – Sarang Jul 29 '17 at 8:16
  • From a custom lightning component. – Ajay Prakash Dubey Jul 29 '17 at 8:17
  • You fire it and catch it in the same component. Probably be a good idea to cancel the event too – Caspar Harmer Jul 29 '17 at 8:17

    I think you also need to add '_blank' as the second param to window.open() – Caspar Harmer Jul 29 '17 at 8:19
  • I knew the record Id, so when I directly used window.open('/' +recordId) it works. So is it OK to skip the navigate standard event? – Sarang Jul 29 '17 at 8:21
