WB 15- How to create link to external website

Startbeitrag von steve erts am 01.05.2013 16:12

Hi All,

I need to create a link to an external site with the URL coming from a field in my database. I can get it to work from the URL HTTP example if the website is hard coded but if I try to pick up URL from DB I get a context error. Any tips on how to do this? It seems to me that it really shouldn't be so complicated.

Funny, that doesn't seem to work for me. Just opens a new window with current page in it.

I put the code


in the server code section of the link control and set the destination target to be New Browser.

I prefaced the call with an info box to see if the variable was being populated correctly and it is. Anything else you can think of that I might be missing?

Hi Steve

Please check and see what the ACTION for your link is (in its properties)... It should be "run the server code of link"

Best regards

Hi Fabrice,

That's what I have.

This is what I see there.

Runs the server click code of '' and displays the result in a new browser (that will be opened).

Is this normal? I can not figure out what I am doing wrong?

Hi Steve,

Simply use the ..URL property of the Link to set / change it. This works without any special modifications.

If you have a looper control with a Link control, use an attribute pointing to the Link control's URL action. There is nothing else to do. You can change the text of the link independently.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
