    Description

      This could be accomplished support for a format specification based on ucd. For this example from NED votable,

      {{<FIELD ID="derived_col3" name="refcode_heliocentric_velocity" NEDname="V (Heliocentric) Reference code" ucd="meta.bib.bibcode" datatype="char" arraysize="*">

      <TD>1983MNRAS.204..811C</TD>}},

      it would be great to specify a format with something like

      var fmt = '<a href="https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/#abs/$
      {1}/abstract">${1}
      </a>';
      col.meta.FieldFmt["meta.bib.bibcode"] = fmt;

      Another use case from NED:

      Is there a way for Firefly to use two VO Table FIELDS to make a hot link?

      NED's demo UI can display external references as hot links. See b.ned.ipac.caltech.edu/byname, External References tab.

      If a NED VO Table FIELD has a <LINK ... href="<FIELD_NAME"/>, a hot link will be created using <FIELD_NAME> as the href. The service.url can be hidden, so two fields make link.

      {{<FIELD ID="ext_col2" name="external_service_name" ucd="service.name" datatype="char" arraysize="*">
      <DESCRIPTION>Name of related on-line astronomical service .</DESCRIPTION>
      <LINK content-role="query" content-type="text/xml" href="ext_col5"/>
      </FIELD>
      ...
      <FIELD ID="ext_col5" name="external_service_url" ucd="service.url" datatype="char" type="hidden" arraysize="*">
      <DESCRIPTION>
      URL address of related on-line astronomical service .
      </DESCRIPTION>
      </FIELD>}}

            VO datalink standard should be consulted for this.

            Yes, as part of IRSA-2420, I do plan on implementing A.1 and A.4 of http://www.ivoa.net/documents/VOTable/20130920/REC-VOTable-1.3-20130920.html#ToC54

            It is not exactly the same as what's described in this ticket.  Perhaps, you can point me to where in the standard the above format references, or consider using the standard described in A.1 and A.4

            I think Jeff was proposing one way of implementation, not a standard in particular. As long as the issue can be addressed it will be better if you implement it with VOTable standard.

            gpdf — is this ticket still relevant following the SUIT descope? I think it is describing off-project development of Firefly, so I am inclined to simply close it as won't fix.

            This work was completed, largely in Firefly release 2020.3. Closing.
