I have a form that has a virtual Show column with a URL that concatenates the YouTube search URL along with a title field from that row and “movie clips” . This result in the user being able to clip on the URL and it goes out to You Tube and show clips from that movie. It works beautifully in a form that I built, but when I use a detailed view, the search just launches YouTube and not with the CONCATENATE search criteria. Any ideas?
What you’re trying to do should work (though I’ve not tried what you’re doing specifically).
Is Include Show columns in detail views set to ON?
If so, please provide screenshots of:
- The expression used to construct the YouTube URL.
- The configuration screen of the Show column.
- The configuration screen of the detail view.
Try wrapping your LOOKUP() expression with ENCODEURL().
Tried the encodeURL. No luck. I can see in YouTube that it is leaving out the info from the lookup…but it’s strange that this would just happen in detail view versus form view. Here’s what gets pasted into youtube as url: “https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=+movie+clips”
I’m not sure what else to ask you to look at for this. Probably best you engage firstname.lastname@example.org directly so someone can look at your app directly.
Thanks for trying…
