hyperlink in report widget

Publication date: April 30, 2019

I have added a file upload field.
is there a way to make the file which is uploaded accessible with a clickable hyperlink? Maybe I need to add some HTML code?

At this moment you can’t click, but need to copy the complete link.

thanks for your advice


Create the field with blank name

Publication date: September 17, 2018

QuintaDB accepts HTML in field names.

So in order to show field without a title simple enter
<br /> or &nbsp; into the fields name.

Can you help with this please. I have a acquired a new computer that I am keeping as virgin so that I can test applications. One issue that I have with my Record View html content is that IE8 and 9 display the Mixed Content message – which the only solution I know is to change the browser security settings. However, I note that on the QuintaDB web site your own examples do not have this message displayed in your demo databases.

I can see that my using my own html content I have replaced what could be the calls to prevent this, here is a paste from one your demo sites;
<br /> <!DOCTYPE html><br /> <html><br /> <head><script type="text/javascript">var NREUMQ=NREUMQ||[];NREUMQ.push(["mark","firstbyte",new Date().getTime()]);</script><br /> <title>Templates - Yellow Paper</title><br /> <meta name='robots' content='nofollow' /><br /> <meta name='norton-safeweb-site-verification' content='5nfikchek440qhex6rp4dkx9npmeh28xacb9rvrrepzszlqdkwyw-pt9y2ihu305uvqebpgyvc74zxc4yhlop2t0izzl67sl9469gy9nfm18qukwywqtobu5qd3b5hix' /><br /> <meta name='verify-v1' content='EoGNPmzsb8tOdi3BLwyMOJWLuZ+ukwVWNq6vQ7hxgzY=' /><br /> <meta name='wot-verification' content='37363603f1e6ae4be0db' /><br /> <link href='/blog.rss' rel='alternate' title='RSS' type='application/rss+xml' /><br /> <meta http-equiv='Content-Language' content='English' /><br /> <meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=utf-8'/><br /> <script type='text/javascript'><br /> __RULES = []<br /> </script><br /> <script src='/javascripts/all_app.js' type='text/javascript'></script><!--[if lte IE 7]><br /> <link href='http://MyTaskHelper.com/stylesheets/ie.css' media='screen' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' /><br /> <![endif]--><br /><br />

Should I be using a similar head content in my html? If so, what are the defaults?

The links are called within a Record View html directly from QuintaDB url fields. The only exception is a Mail to link calling an QuintaDB email link. There are no other links than within the QuintaDB database record. Here is a test page url;


It seems that if QuintaDB calls Record View then the fact that it uses https and other links in the database are normal http that IE (fine in Firefox and Google Chrome) wants the user to respond to a badly phrased security message. For the time being I will insert a help link on the pages to explain the issue but we really should have a better work around that this. Is it possible for QuintaDB to either detect the existence of http calls and then use http to access Record View? Or is there some way that Record View be parameter set by the developer/user to use http?

I know and understand this is not an issue of your making, however if users are to feature url links in their database and call these from Record View then QuintaDB should be able to facilitate this without having web site visitors be potentially frightened away from applications by a Microsoft message.

Bug in DMTHML Editing.

Publication date: August 16, 2018

When editing DMTHML I have encountered a glitch.

The steps to reproduce are:

Select Customize & Integrate

Select Record, make a small change (eg Bold) and click Update

Select Database and click Direct Link

Click Edit on the right hand side and edit the record (eg add some text)

Click Update on the bottom of the page

The record summary is now displayed on screen and there is an Edit link at the top. Click this link and nothing happens – however, if you reset the record widget to default and update it will work fine.

Print Form

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Is there code that can be added to a form that would allow users to print the filled form before submitting? I’ve tried adding some html to the iframe code without any luck. Or, on the wish list maybe you could add a print button that could be inserted into a form like a field.

Thank you,

In order to work in the Hebrew language – your system must support the Hebrew text HTML encodes. This, to provide the Israeli users the correct right-to-left actual reading code and
