Custom field with onClick javascript?

Hello all

 

I try to make a custom field in contact that can execute some JavaScript code when it is clicked to realize a click to dial phone number field.

 

With a custom field in contacts with the following formula I could already invoke JavaScript but this also opens a new empty window:HYPERLINK("javascript:alert('I should dial to  " & Phone & "  now')", Phone)

HYPERLINK("javascript:alert('I should dial to  " & Phone & "  now')", Phone)

 Is there a way doing that without opening a new window?

 

In HTML it should look for example like this:

<a href="DialTo:(111)222-3333" onClick="alert('I should dial to (111)222-3333');return false;">(111)222-3333</a>

 

 

Thank you for suggestions,

Matthias

Hi , 

Please try the following:-

HYPERLINK("javascript&colon;alert('I should dial to " & Phone & " now')", Phone, "_self")

Yes, that works. Thank you for help.

 

I thought that I already tried that and then the alert box was opened in the same window but the original salesforce page behind of the alert box was replaced by a blank page. But now it works fine. Probably I did not exactly that before.
