I am working on a Dashboard Popup in Sitecore in which I display list of several items. And I want to know if I can trigger a sitecore command link the "item:load" to focus on the Content Tree item when I click the item based from it's ID.

enter image description here

Is there a way to do this using JavaScript within Sitecore?

There may be a way to specifically trigger item:load. But I would probably look first to something simpler, like just generating a Content Editor URL for your item.


Alternatively, with some Javascript:

<a onclick="scForm.getParentForm().postRequest('','','','item:load(id={GUID OF ITEM HERE})'); return false;" href="#">Go to item</a>
