    Include subject in mailto hyperlink

    I'd like to put a button or hyperlinked text that includes mailto: link with a defined subject line and possibly also body text. I read the tip on p1145 of Woody and Ed's Special Edition, but must admit I didn't understand how to go about implementing it. Can anyone help?

    Re: Include subject in mailto hyperlink

    When entering or editing the mailto hyperlink, select 'Parameters' and add:
    Name: Subject
    Value: Your subject
    add:
    Name: Body
    Value: some text
    This will give you something like:
    mailto:hyperlink
    You then need to replace the + signs with spaces on the HTML page.
    I find it easier now to edit the hyperlink directly and type in what I want.
    Does that help?

    Leif - many thanks. That did the trick. Are there other parameters that one can define with the Name/Value combination?

    Re: Include subject in mailto hyperlink

    Absolutely no idea!
    What else would you want to add?
    I think the parameter additions window is the same for any hyperlink - the '?' help gives 'Type and select the name and value for the prameters you want to pass in to your database query' - suggests things such as modifying the ultimate url depending on where you browsed from, or what language you speak etc.
    Sorry I'm not much more help!

    I was just wondering if there might be a standardised list of Names related to Office apps but there presumably isn't. Thanks for the feedback.
