Where are you displaying it? If it's on a web page, just write the HTML anchor tag around it. If it's on a Swing page or some other front-end ... well we'd have to know what it is first.


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Note that this is continued from this thread.

Varsha, there is a "post reply" button next to the "post new topic" one. It's good to continue discussion on a given topic in the same thread to make things easier to follow.

Thanks,
