this tag is used within a format file that is a response to an HTML
form or URL based action then the parameters of that action will be

The base URL of the link is set by default to the path to the
current format file (using [Response_FilePath]). This value can be
overridden by specifying a -Response parameter in the tag itself.

Additional parameters such as command tags or name/value pairs can
be added to the tag using the [Link_SetFormat] tag or by specifying
them within the tag itself. Parameters in [Link_SetFormat] and the

within inline tags including -Database, -Table, -KeyField, and

-NoParams removes all name/value parameters from the link (including
associated -Required, -Op, -OpBegin, and -OpEnd command tags).

-No.Name removes every instance of the the specified
parameter from the link. (e.g. -No.First_Name or -No.Company).

-NoSort removes all -SortField and -SortOrder tags.

-NoTokens removes all tokens. -NoToken removes the unnamed token.
-NoToken.Name removes the specified token.

The parameters are specified in the following order. First, the
action (if any) is specified. Next, the command tags (with the
exceptions listed later) are included in alphabetical order. Each
command tag is only included once. Finally, all of the name/value
parameters and the following command tags are included in the order
they were specified (-SortField, -SortOrder, -Op, -OpBegin, -OpeEnd).

The -Username, -Password, -SQL, and -ReturnField parameters are
never output by this link tag. If the action is -Nothing then it is
not output since an action of -Nothing is assumed.
