Clickable URL in a grid?

Created: 05 Jun 2013 • Updated: 14 Jun 2013 | 6 comments

I have a data grid that displays actual URL links in one of the columns. Is there a simple way I can make these clickable hyperlinks?

Looks like running the data through a merge text to build the hyperlink is the solution

Actually, this form didn't quite answer my question. Still having an issue with where the hyperlink sends me.  I explain it in detail in the thread you linked me. Can you help me?

What I found to be working is adding a hyperlink column. Just put ie 'link' in text and chose as data colum a valid url. To show the actual url and get an onclick action on it you'll have to to some javascript.

Example

Use following sql as datasource and have grid show computername in one column and the 'link'-link in another

select name,'http://server/Altiris/Console/Dashboard/DashboardView.aspx?ResourceGuid='+ convert(varchar(36),Guid) as link from vComputer

My problem with this method is that workflow messes up the url.

Example:

User clicks the link

The link's URL is www.google.com

Workflow takes the user to http://server/project/www.google.com instead of www.google.com

How can I get workflow to take the user to www.google.com?

Thanks for getting some screenshots posted in the other thread. What I've seen tells me this: you need to be using the full url. Instead of www.google.com, use http://www.google.com.
