Add a Link Label Control to a Form

A Link Label control is capable of executing a single Action when clicked (example: Run an Action/One-Step Action). You can also enter a simple URL.

Use the Form Editor (accessed from within a Blueprint in CSM Administrator) to add a Link Label control to a form.

To add a Link Label control to a form:

  1. Open a form in the Form Editor.
  2. Drag-and-drop the Link Label control from the Control tree onto the form.
  3. Right-click the Link Label control, and then select Control Properties.
  4. In the Choose Action window, define what happens when the link is selected:
    • Select Action, and then select the ellipsis to open the Action Manager, and then select the Action to execute. If you select a One-Step Action, you can optionally select the Show Progress check box to provide a visual indicator to users that the One-Step Action is executing when the link is selected.
    • Select Web Link, and then type the URL of the web page to open.
  5. Optionally, select the Don't disable control when form is disabled check box to enable users to select the Link Label when the form cannot be edited.
  6. Select OK.
  7. Define the text to display on the Link Label control:
    1. In the Label text box on the Form Editor toolbar, provide the text to display on the button.
    2. (Optional) Change the font, font size, font style, and font alignment if needed.
  8. Define how the control looks and behaves on the form (example: size, alignment, etc.).
  9. Publish the Blueprint to commit the changes, or save the Blueprint to continue making other changes.
