When adding a new item or editing an existing item in a SharePoint List containing a Hyperlink, an error may occur.


When a SharePoint List with a Hyperlink property is created and the list is Appified, the hyperlink column in the SmartObject is of type Text. If you edit the SmartObject and change the type to Hyperlink, the following runtime errors occur and the item cannot be saved:

New item error:


Edit item error:



To resolve these errors, edit the SmartObject and change the Hyperlink Type back to Text.

Note: Changing the Hyperlink Type from Text to Hyperlink is not recommended - the underlying K2 SharePoint integration is designed to handle all Hyperlink columns as Text.
