Adding Hyperlink button to Rich Text Box tool bar

You can create custom list in SharePoint environment. The list can contain multiple columns with different data types. (Single line of text, multiple lines of text, Date and Time, Numbers, Currency …..)

When you create a multiple lines of text data column, this will display a Rich Text Box when user enters the data. But this text box won’t support highlighting a text with a hyperlink. If you have a look at Rich Text Box available in adding a News item in the Portal server, it contains this functionality.

To allow the above functionality for all the Rich Text Box’s simply do the following change in OWS.JS file located at “C:\Program Files\Common Files\ Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033”

Find the RichTextFieldBuildUI() function and replace the following line

RTE_ConvertTextAreaToRichEdit(
this.frm.stFieldPrefix + this.stName,
true,
fld.fAllowHyperlink,
this.stDirection,
L_Language_Text);

with

RTE_ConvertTextAreaToRichEdit(
this.frm.stFieldPrefix + this.stName,
true,
true,
this.stDirection,
L_Language_Text);
