Not particularly familiar with lightning but so far I've implemented a visualforce page related to some object A. On the standard view for A, I've added in a button to open the visualforce page but it opens in a new window, however I would like for it to open in a new lightning experience tab. Is that possible and if so how would I do it?

From googling around it seems that you can only open and manage lightning components within the lightning experience tabs, but I just want to make sure.

The options I used were:

1) Behavior: Display in new window

2) Display Type: Detail Page Button

  • What options did you choose for the button? – sfdcfox Dec 20 '17 at 19:16

Create a new Tab for visualforce page you've created. SETUP->CREATE->Tabs. Create new tab under Visualforce Tabs Section. Enter the tab name, and then save. Switch to lightning experience click the App launcher button in top-left corner.You can find the tab you created in the name you've given. Hope this helps.
