HTML Text for Title in Data Card

I am trying to build an app that functions as a customizable portal for our institutional sites and web tools.  I set up the data source as a Sharepoint list with columns including title, short description and link.  The first two are the short text type and the last is a hyperlink type.  When the 'wizard' builds the app, the link column offers a live link.  However, I would like the Title to be associated with the link.  Would actually like to hide the link.

 

Problem is, I cannot change the Title Property to HTML Text

You can do one of two things.

1) Add an HtmlText control to your datacard and set the link data in the HtmlText property.

2) Change the OnSelect of the label to do a Launch(yourUrlData) to launch the URL from a click on the title label.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

The Title field is a required field in SharePoint and is created automatically as Single Line of Text.  As such you can't change it to Enhanced Text (which would be required to use HTML)

Thanks for the feedback.  The Launch command works well.  Only wish the mouse pointer, when used on desktop, would turn into a hand pointer instead of a text beam 🙂

Consider using a button instead, as it will give the turn to the finger pointer when hovered over it.

If you are looking for a particular look, you can customize the properties of a button so it looks just like a label, or anything else.
