Good Day All;

I am trying to figure out how to add a link on a form that will take a user to help files. On the version I am running there does not appear to be a way to create a “HTML” link. Trust me, I have looked at all the dropdowns. I am running version 8.05.02.

I have tried using the HTML submit button, but that give me the error, “cannot display the webpage”.

I took a look at the XML source for this button and was thinking it might have something to do with the

<value>

<text>submit</test>

This is what I would like to do.

The user clicks on a button (or hyper link) that will open a document that resides on a common drive.

Anny help would be appreciated.

Well, in my version (9.??) I can add static text to my form, and while editing the text directly in the form design pane I can highlight a portion of the static text, right click and select "...Insert Hyperlink".

To be clear, this only works for static text or captions... it won't work for fillable text fields.

Let me know if you don't have the option to insert a hyperlink by right clicking on selected text (you should, even in your version).  If you don't, then I could try walking you through how to alter the xml of a text field to include a hyperlink. This is a bit dangerous as you run the risk of corrupting your entire form. Hopefully e won't have to bother with this method as it's not pretty.
