Tech Tip: Directly executing a URL in a text area
PRODUCT: 4D | VERSION: 2004.1 | PLATFORM: Mac & Win
Published On: February 8, 2005

In 4D 2004, a URL in a text area is automatically detected and is highlighted and underlined.

URLs are strings that start with http, ftp, www or mailto.

You can execute this URL directly in the area by pressing Ctrl+Click (Windows) or Command+Click (MacOS) on it, which will load the default Web browser or the default email client program in the case of mailto.
