Help with Hyperlink

I've built a contact manager from an Excel spreadsheet hosted on OneDrive for Business. I had PowerApps build the app automatically and customized it from there.  I've gotten everything to work as needed but one thing.  Where I have a Web Site address, I can't seem to make that into a launchable Hyperlink.  

 

In the spreadsheet, there is a colum for Web Site.  The data in that column is simply a URL, ie. http://www.google.com.  In the App, it created a Data Card for that field with two Labels, DataCardValue38 and DataCardKey38. DataCardKey38 is the label saying "Web Page" and DataCardValue38 is the text that shows... example http://www.google.com - It's simply static text and not a Hyperlink and its not selectable.  For the DataCardValue38, I did add OnSelect = Launch (Web_x0020_Page).  When I run the program, it is still simple non-selectable text.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks.

Heya, 

 

I've replicated what you've got there. To get it to work, simply click on the whole datacard, and change it's DisplayMode from DisplayMode.view to DisplayMode.Edit.

 

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks for this - I've been struggling with this for a while! One more issue you might be able to help me with - is it possible to get the links to be blue and underlined, so they look like links? They currently work as live links but they are plain black text so don't look like clkckable links to the user

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Take a try to switch to HTMLText control.

HTML text control in PowerApps

Which allows you to cutomize the Text with HTML Label.

 

@mcchief,

 

Could you please share your current situation?

 

Regards,

Michael

Don't worry about using an html label. Just use your regular one. To make it underlined, highlight the text in the text box, and press ctrl+u. To make it blue, go to the properties tab and and find color - change it to blue.

Hi Michael,

 

I am still unable to get the hyperlink function working in the Detail Screen using the DataCard.  You can see in the screenshot below where the data is and what I'm trying to do with it.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Try this one:

launch(datacardvalueXX)

Thank you!  That was it!
