Confiforms: Modification of link text from links field

I have a form with a link field where URLs will be pasted in. In views I do not want to have the (rather long) URL shown, but either a standard text or icon (e.g. "Weblink") or a text which the registration user has to enter in the form. 

Is that possible and if yes, how? 
Currently the link field will just take the original link into views. 

Thanks for hints :)

You can have a ConfiForms field macro with field name set to use asLink function.

Assuming your field is called "mylink" then you will need to put into field name parameter something like


perfect (y) 

I am trying to use this method but it is is showing 'weblink' even when link is not provided by the user and record is empty.


May I see how are you using this?


I ma using it inside the "Field" macro in TableView macro, here is how Field macro looks like..



Unless you are using some very old ConfiForms version it should work

Quick test from me: 

A-ha, you are saying that the "weblink" label is generated EVEN when there is no value in the docLink field. I see now!

We will fix this asap
