formatting a Text box for hyperlink

P: n/a
Hi All.
Im combining the values in a couple of fields to an alias field in a query
to make valid web, http addresses.
However I wish to bind this field to a text box and format the text box to
enable me to hyperlink from it.

Is there a way to do this?

Found a solution but question is still un answered

Created anothe field, called Link, and formatted it as a hyperlink field
Used the afterUpdate events of the various component fields, to copy the
alias field into this field. Then changed the visible property of the Alias
field to hidden.

Thanks

Just a note
had to add the '#' character to begining and end of string before commiting
to the hyperlink field.
