Do you mean that you want the user to enter an URL in the editbox?
Can you please be more specific?

As far as I know it is not possible to create a link from an editbox.
HTML does not support this. You will need to use a standard text for that.

I'm sorry I do not think you can make a link of an editbox.

This is what the W3C validator says about it:
Error: The element <input> must not appear as a descendant of the <a> element.
which indicates that is is not valid.

Pablo thank you for all the effort.
The web builder 12.4 with his extensions make me find a way to do it a different way

Thank you
Best regards.

The extension was not designed to create links.
This can only be implemented with custom code.

The code in the link is not valid. I did already try that for you and the W3C validator gave this error:
Error: The element <input> must not appear as a descendant of the <a> element.
So, it may work in some browsers, but it is not valid HTML code.

You will need to implement a function to write the link into a standard text box.

Please note that I cannot provide support on programming. For me it will also take a lot of time to figure out how to do this.

Hello Pablo,

I now get what is simular of what i needed.
View the page link to look what i wanted it to do and klik the button(klus foto)

https://www.realsale.nl/klusseperprov.php

The Editbox in de form field is hidden (with the text link)
A link wil now show and view the picture in de folder on the server.

This works fine for me.
