Event Data

The HyperlinkClick event's data class is HyperlinkClickEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Link Get or sets the URL of the clicked hyperlink.
MouseArgs Gets or sets mouse coordinates calculated from the toolbar’s upper left corner.
Text Gets or sets the hyperlink alt text. Note that modifying this text does not change the item caption.


You can place a hyperlink within a BarStaticItem or a BarButtonItem. To do so, allow text formatting via HTML tags (set the BarManager.AllowHtmlText property to true) and use the href tag for the item’s caption. Refer to the HTML Text Formatting topic to see all available HTML tags.

public Form1() {
    ribbonControl1.AllowHtmlText = true;
    barStaticItem1.Caption = "Visit our <>Web-site</href>";

private void barStaticItem1_HyperlinkClick(object sender, DevExpress.Utils.HyperlinkClickEventArgs e) {

You can also handle the BarManager.HyperlinkClick event to handle any hyperlink click within the entire BarManager control.
