Type Default Description


A DocumentCapability enumeration specifying the document’s capability to handle hyperlinks.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:


This property affects the ability to create, modify, delete and follow hyperlinks in the document using the built-in features.

The DocumentCapability.Default value for the Hyperlinks property is equal to DocumentCapability.Enabled, so that the hyperlinks are available for a currently loaded document.

With the Hyperlinks property set to DocumentCapability.Disabled, existing hyperlinks become inactive for end-users.


The hyperlink is a specific kind of a document field, therefore the DocumentCapabilitiesOptions.Fields property affects the hyperlink loading process when importing the document. Set the RichEditControlCompatibility.LoadHyperlinkAsField property to false before calling the InitializeComponent method to correct this behavior and allow loading hyperlinks when loading fields is disabled.
