Action start a text message based on a row

I want to add an action to the detail view of an item to send the details via text message. Filling in a number is required, however i just want it to start a new message so the user can enter the contact once it opens in the text messaging app. Any thoughts?

I have not fiddled with this action yet.

But, what if you were to fill in the number of the person who is sending the text? That way if they happened to send it without changing it, it would just get sent to themselves!

Thanks. That’s what I was thinking, but I would have to add all of the user’s cell phone numbers in a table. I was hoping it would just open fresh message.

I wonder what would happen if you filled in a bogus number? I don’t know where you are, but in the US 555 numbers are not real numbers. For example (603) 555-1234.

Good thought. I’ll give it a try. Thanks
