InfoPath question

  Asked By: Carolyn    Date: Jun 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 823

I'm not sure how many of you use InfoPath in conjunction with
SharePoint... I'm brand new to InfoPath myself, so I apologize if
this is a silly question.

I've created a form in InfoPath, the results of which are stored in
a SharePoint list. One of the fields in the form is a hyperlink -
however, there's no place (that I can see) to specify that the
content of this field should be a hyperlink, or a place in the form
to fill out display text for the hyperlink. You can do this in
SharePoint itself - but I haven't been able to figure out how to do
it in InfoPath. As it is, the SharePoint list displays the whole
long URL, and it would be much cleaner-looking if users could
specify alternate display text in the form.

This is not an InfoPath, but a SPS issue. The problem is the way SPS by
default displays  columns coming from an IP form.

This can be done (I think) with a custom site with a custom AllItems
page that produces a different type listing than the std http://.... for
the hyperlink. My guess is you would alter/hyjack the jscript functions
(which if memory serves, are not in the allitems.aspx page) that
actually produce the html that is displayed and render a std <a href...>
