I use a "hyperlinkaddress" property of an image to open a web folder with set of documents (ftp://xx.xx.xx.xx). How can I set login and password for a user inside my application for such hyperlinkaddress.
If not possible, waht is the way to connect to such folder?

Thanks.

Flavo is right about the syntax above, and you can build a string that looks like it then assign is as the Hyperlinkaddress value.

Do you plan on storing usernames and passwords within your database? Will you want the users to type their username and password in before trying to open the hyperlink?

If so, then you'll need to build a table to store usernames and passwords

You'll also need to build a form to validate the username and password.

Let us know what you're after.

Thanks, that is what I was looking for. On this stage I do not need a table, it should be constant username and password that I define.
