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
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, I got it working. I would like to know if this is the best way to be doing this.
I am using the HTML Submit button and the code looks like this.
<submit format="urlencoded" textEncoding="UTF-8" target="folder name on common drive"/> The document is a Microsoft Word document. Thanks all
<submit format="urlencoded" textEncoding="UTF-8" target="folder name on common drive"/>
The document is a Microsoft Word document.
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.
I sent my “work” stuff home to see what I could do. And… On the version I am running at home, 8.2.1 I can right click and add a hyper link. I guess I will be doing some of this at home. It will be a 24 hour turn around … I guess….
Thanks again everyone.
Jono, you were correct. It does not work with the version of Acrobat pro I have installed. It does however work with the version of Adobe reader the users have installed.
I will look at the code and see what happens if I manually change the code. If not, there will be a 24 hour turn around if I need to make any changes.
Thanks again for the help
