Hyperlink on form region RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Is is possible to create a hyperlink on a form region? If so how can I do that? I want to create something that behaves exactly like the "Web Page Address" edit box on the contact form.

    Thanks in advance,

  • I usually use just a textbox or label with underlined font set and a Click() handler to take care of opening a browser using a Shell command to the URL in the text.

    Damian's reply raises a salient question: are you designing this Region in Outlook or Visual Studio?  You can use any .NET or ActiveX control in the latter (but no Olk controls), but no .NET in the former.
