I want to have a field in a tabel wich holds mailto-links, much like the way you can make a field holding hyperlinks (http://). How do I do that?

hi,

it depends on if you want all the information to be stored in the database or not. for example, for a hyperlink you might just want to store "www.domainname.com" and keep the <a href="http://<%=rs("hyperlink")%>"> etcetera-part in your code. One reason could be that you want to assign different css-classes to different links.

with this approcah you would just store "info@domainname.com" in your table.

the other approach is to store the entire link, i.e. <a href="mailto:info@domainname.com">info@domainname. com</a> in your table.
