Extend URL widget features to ease customization of anchor’s text.

With this module you can use a field for link’s inner text.

Use url widget as you do usually, then add an extra parameter text_field to indicate which field (present in the view already) must be used for the anchor text.

<field name="some_url" widget="url" text_field="another_field" />

M2O fields are supported: display_name is used automatically.

<field name="website" widget="url" text_field="name" placeholder="e.g."/>
