Question

Is there a way to set a control on a non-editable list view to link each item in the list to its respective list item?

Answer

To set a hyperlink control in this manner do the following:

 

1. In a List View, drag a hyperlink control onto the view:

9. Click OK.
10. Click OK on the Expression Editor.
11. Finish and check in the view.

 

After you have configured this view, run the view, you should see that all items that have been submitted to the list appear and the hyperlink control for each item should be usable and should open the associated forms.
