Re: show label as a hyper link

Hello All!

I actually got this to work yesterday!

I'm sure there is a better way but this is how I did it.

I created a Column on my List - "New Hyperlink" (single line of text). I have a work flow that builds my url (WebUrl/ListNam/FileName) places it in a Variable and then updates the Field "New Hyperlink".   In the list I have a Calculated Column with the following Formula:

=CONCATENATE("<a href=",[New Hyperlink],">",[Custom Document ID],"</a>") and make sure the data type is set to "Number" otherwise it will not work.

Note: I'm linking to a Custom Document ID you can link it to most fields.

Hope it helps

Re: show label as a hyper link

You can add a calculated column that gets the info from the other list and store it as a javascript variable.  Then add a button set the action to javascript and the type to Link.  Set the onclick to a function then add something like this to the custom JavaScript

function goToURL() {

var dynamicURL = NWF$('#' +CalculatedColumn).val();

window.location.href = 'www.staticURL' + dynamicURL;

}

Re: show label as a hyper link

Your requirements may be a little different from the OP's.  Are you trying to create the url in a workflow or display it on a form?

How about the Query List action? Then set the text of the button to that value of the column.
