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></href> tag for the item’s caption.

public Form1() {
    barManager1.AllowHtmlText = true;
    barStaticItem1.Caption = "Visit our <>Web-site</href>";

private void barManager1_HyperlinkClick(object sender, DevExpress.Utils.HyperlinkClickEventArgs e) {

See the HTML Text Formatting topic for the list of all available HTML tags.

You can also handle the BarItem.HyperlinkClick event for individual bar items.

Clicking HyperLinkEdit items does not fire the HyperlinkClick event.
