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.


BarItems, displayed within a RibbonControl, can display hyperlinks within their BarItem.Captions and/or BarItem.Descriptions. Set the RibbonControl.AllowHtmlText property to true and format the desired string via the <href></href> tag. Refer to the HTML Text Formatting topic to learn more.

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

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

You can override the global RibbonControl.AllowHtmlText property setting for individual items. To do so, use the BarItem.AllowHtmlText property.
