TextBox to show display text for a hyperlink
My problem is that I am making a form that takes data from one table where the field is a hyperlink and I'm putting that hyperlink as a string in a textbox on a form. The problem is that the string displays the value as display name#URL. for example: google#www.google.com. I only want it to display the display name (google). This is the code I'm using
