Fully Qualify Hyperlink
Posted on 2004-03-29
I have a hyperlink field in a table displayed on a form. The purpose of this is to drag a file in and drop it to create a link to that file, which will be manipulated in a later process. When I drag and drop a file, it puts a relative address into the field. IE:
Clicking this address returns an error that the file cannot be opened. What I need is a fully qualified (absolute) address. IE:
Is there an option anywhere I can set to do this? Or perhaps intercept the drop and force it to accept a fully qualified address in code? Or is this simply impossible without the user right-clicking and going through the hyperlink dialog (which I would really rather avoid)? Thanks.
