Hi Experts,

I'm looking for a way to a webpage from a Infopath form and sending a paramater to it.

Like :

patient.asp?PID=<patientID>

should effectuate in:

patient.asp?PID=7767853

In what shape?   a hyperlink or Button will do

Can this be done in Infopath 2007 without code sign certificates?
And how?

Thanks

this is really pretty straightforward.
Create a field for the url
Set the field value with a function
concat( "http://static url path PID=", pidvalue)
Then add a hyperlink control which uses the field as the value.

Then you have a dynamic hyperlink.

no VB!

Just need a rule to set the field value or make it a default, it depends on your form setup.

Then just add the hyperlink control and go to properties and you can use the function button on both the display and the value portions of the hyperlink.
