Can I build a launchable URL based on other data elements?

Hi.  I want to generate a HTTP link in the URL filed based on other data eg "https://site.com/Search='my-data'" where my-data is an existing field.  I want this to be defined as a URL so that clicking on the URL (globe) icon launches the site.

I am using the Mac standalone version of Ninox. Is there a way to achieve this?

Thank you.

    You can simulate the same behavior by putting an openURL("https://site.com/Search=" + 'my-data') command within a Button....  most likely should also use a urlEncode as well..

    Hi, I am trying to achieve something similar where clicking the button opens a UL with a web form and data from the record is populated in the webform. So for example using openURL("https://mysite.co.uk/view.php?id=12345&element_32='Email'&element_35='Name'&element_36='Account'") where the elementXX is the element ID in the form and 'Email', 'Name and 'Account' are the field names from the table. When I click the button it enters the three field names, instead of the data from teh record. How can I fix this? Thanks for your help.
