Add Text Field over URL Field

    I am using a URL field for a button named "New Project" and would like to a put in hover text when the user hovers over the button. The text would say something like " Click Here to Open New Project". Anybody know how this can be accomplished without using the built in Field Help?

    Hi Corey,


    You would need to build the button in a rich text field.  This way, you would be able to use the anchor tag and give it a title. You can find examples of creating rich text buttons in the app Magic Buttons: Having fun with Formual URL's available in the Quick Base example apps.  The best way is to find examples in this app, and when you create the button, you would add a title to it.  

    "<a class='Vibrant Success' href='" & Code to execute & "' title='Click Here to Open New Project' >" & "New Project" &

    The highlighted section is what will create the text when you hover over the button.
