Http fields and WebDav Links RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have developed a 'Browse' button for a URL text box in CRM 2011 entity using javascript. The function is to enable users to navigate towards a Webfolder and select a file from a Sharepoint.  The link that is placed in the text box is as following

    http://\\<server name>@<port>\DavWWWRoot\<websitecollection>\<SP folder>\<file name>

    Is this a normal standard link or am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you for anyone answering this question any MS articles that help would be great.

  • Thanks for the reply, I need to know if the syntax of the link is correct or it looks strange to you or in general.

  • Hello,

    URL field will automatically prefix http:// which means it will consider resource is available on internet, so you won't be able to access your internal resource, so I think you need to use a field without URL format and need to make it clickable using js something like this
