Rich Text - Formula Fields are pretty nice.

This is fantastic! That underlined bit down there all appears to be functional. Note the OpenAsPopup must be first, if SaveBeforeNavigating precedes, it doesn't work.

Rich Text - Formula field example:

var text btnName = "+ Child Records";
var text url = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=showpage&pageID=34#" &[Record ID#]&"&"&[Related Records]);
var text style = [styleAdd];
var text title = "Add Record Button";
"<a class='Vibrant Success OpenAsPopup' data-height=600 data-width=600 class='SaveBeforeNavigating' data-refresh=true title=\"" & $title & "\"style =\"" & $style & "\"" & $target & "href=" & $url & ">" & $btnName & "</a>"

[styleAdd] is a Quickbase variable in the App Properties so you can style all the buttons in all the tables in all the forms once. 

Here's the variable:
display: block; width: 130px; text-decoration: none; text-align: center; padding: 8px; font-size: 12px; color: #ffffff; border-width: 1px; border-color: #777777; border-style: none; border-radius: 3px; background-color: #6BBD57;
It makes a green button just like a QB button but in a form.

Imagine a Button on a form, Form properties have the "alternate name" = blank.
Fields on the form can be changed before clicking the button (no more Save & Keep Working!!! No more losing changes!!!).
When the button is clicked, the code page loads in a 600X600 popup window and the code runs (not in a browser tab!!!).
When the code is complete, a JavaScript alert in the code page prompts the User the code is done and closes the popup window.
When the popup window closes the Form saves and reloads!!!

A checklist table with a generic checklist.
A new record that needs a checklist. The checklist added to the new record is related to the record and therefore its own checklist.  The checklist is not "related" to the generic checklist table. The benefit of this process means changes to the record-checklist will not affect the generic checklist records nor other checklist records.

All I need to figure out now is how to style the js alert() so it is consistent with qb alerts.

Thanks Quickbase! These class changes have given Users much better flow to their daily processes.
