URL (logical data type)

Vinyl 3.0

The URL Logical Data Type should be used in conjunction with the Nvarchar Physical Data Type for fields that you want to display and be formatted as URLs. Defining the Logical Data Type as URL provides Vinyl instructions on how to handle the display of the resultant information. For example, on a mobile device a field set as URL Logical Data Type will render the field appropriately and when in Edit mode the keyboard will contain a .com option.

After a column is configured with the URL data type in the Table Definition of the Business Logic Layer, you can add a corresponding Control to a Panel on a Page to view the information in your application.
