How to launch a form from a Html Textbox?

Hi,

 

I inserted a html textbox and have text "click here to submit the form". When I click "click here" hyperlink text, the form should launch. I searched but could not find an answer. Anyone has any ideas how I should do this?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Pei

Hi @ppei ,

Assuming you have your link as a field value or variable, you need this

"<a href=" & YourLinkValue & ">Press this link </a>"

 A hard-coded example

"<a href='https://www.practicalpowerapps.com'>Press this link </a>"

@WarrenBelz  Thank you for your suggestion.  Sorry I didn't see your earlier reply. Your solution is for opening an external site/form. How can I refer an internal form? It's my fault that I didn't make it clear that I am looking for referring an internal form directly in Html Textbox so when I click the link I can open another form within the same app. For a workaround, I just type some words in the Html textbox and put a button on top of the word to navigate to the internal form. It's kind of a solution. I welcome any better solutions.

@ppei ,

This is not something you can do in Power Apps - a URL cannot launch internal code unless you want to go to the very messy process of deep-linking the app with itself, which would open another copy of it.
