I've created a simple HTML form that has a button that I've linked to www.google.com using the HTML Layout Painter program. It's super simple, just the one button.
When the HTML form runs, the button doesn't do anything. I can click on it all I want, but it doesn't go to www.google.com. In fact, it just sort of sits there...it doesn't even try to open a new window. I created this HTML form because we were having the same trouble with a form we created yesterday that calls a .fex.
The code is shown below if that's relevant.
< !-- Generated by Report Layout Painter -->
var rltdyncalendar = "rltdyncalendar"; var olap="olap"; var olappanebase="olappanebase"; var olapdrill="olapdrill";
I think the big difference is the lack of an onClick event in Jason's original code. No button will work without something defined for onClick. Don't know where it went, but it is correctly included in Tom's code

There's really nothing wrong with coding a simple hyperlink like
But this was done, and should work when, "using the HTML Layout Painter". With a form as simple as this one is said to be, I'd create a new one from scratch and pay particular attention to what I did or didn't do differently from the first form. It Should work...

I take your point about "using the HTML Layout Painter", but my comment, was more based on good user interface design.
A hyperlink is blue, underlined text, not a button ! (Norman, Nielsen, et al)
And, while I admit to a heavy bias towards hand coding vs. IBI tools, I don't see how anyone can do much of a non- trivial nature with WebFocus, even using these tools, without an understanding of HTML.
