Title: Creating HyperLinks within HyperNext
Post by: Jeff on January 26, 2011, 01:04:33 AM
Is it possible to create hyperlinks within the HyperNext software like the ones that you see at websites that can be clickable to send you to a website?

I want to place a link in the text field name that can be clickable or is hyperlinked.

Thanks

By default when you double-click text in a field it selects only the whole word under the mouse click. If you double-click twice it then selects the whole text. If using the one double-click method then things become more complex as most weblinks have dots slashes etc in them - therefore you would need to look up the simplified hyperlink in a list and get the corresponding complete address. The function FieldSelTextFN returns the selected text.

Although It is possible to launch a web-browser using the FolderItemLaunch command,  on Windows platform the web page address is not passed to the launched application.

On OS X there are more options as HyperNext can run Applescripts.
