The URL field in dynamics can display web address and also act as a hyperlink. Great if users are going to be updating the field and navigating to the url .In an example situation where either you auto generate the url with a workflow or set using a data import long urls don’t really look that nice on the form.
So what if you could make this url look like hyper linked text with the actual url in the backgroud? I had the idea from Microsoft CRM Techies blog. We can actually change the display name of the field on the fly.
After a save and publish , the field should now look like a hyperlinked text with your Url, a hover over the description will show the url. If you know your HTML you can further customize the look of the field, I simply set be it to blue and underlined using the following line in the button html “style=’color:blue;text-decoration:underline !important'”
Also worth noting , the url field will now not be editable on the form, so I recommend making the field read only.
