    Hi,

    On my form 63423134202946 I want to have the text in col2 as a hyperlink. The link text is very long so I want to use a friendly name as link. Example:

    TPX-1 = https://www.stormtech.ca/retail/men-s-match-technical-polo-txp-1.html for men and

    TPX-1 = https://www.stormtech.ca/retail/women-s-match-technical-polo-txp-1w.html for women.

    Is this possible?

    Thank you,

    Regards Robert

    I would like to apologize for any inconvenience, however, it seems that it is not possible to add a data in the Data Grid widget as a link. Although HTML anchor tags may show that it is working on the builder page, however, loading the form will show otherwise.

    I would suggest you try to recreate the Data Grid table in your form using Text Fields' Table. Since you can include links in it.

    Also, you can style the table using CSS codes. However, the table doesn't have the ability to sort the data when you click the column header.

    If you have other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us again anytime.

    Hi, 

    Yes that option had occurred to me but after spending hours inserting custom css for the Data Grid Widget I was hoping I could. I have eliminated the sort function from the widget.

    I didn't know they wanted this until today. 

    Rather then links perhaps I could add images instead although they could not be used in the widget, too large.

    I will burn some more wood and find a fix, perhaps the text option.

    Thank you,

    Robert

    Unfortunately, the Data Grid widget won't take any html tag. Open a new thread if you have a new question, we will be glad to assist you.
