Concatenate a text and a URL

Hi,

I have two columns say A which has text - "Google " and B which has a Web Url- "https://google.com" and I need a column C which has data in the format: "A-B" i.e. Google-https://google.com

I am using a custom visual-Card browser for my project and would like to add this column C as one of the fields in MetaData Field.

To the user it would look like:

C: Google- google.com where Google is a text and google.com is a link. 

Is there a way we can achieve this?

 

I tried using the concatenate function to create the column C but that doesn't work!

Hi @shivani1,

 

It is not possible to create a column, part of which is Text, while the rest is a link. A column can only be formatted with one data type.

Hi @shivani1

Hi @rajendran,

It is about producing a third column in such a way that if I use it any visual,  A part is text and part B is a link

 

Thanks,

Shivani
