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 add hyperlinks to your LabelControl along with a regular text string. To do so, set the LabelControl.AllowHtmlString property to true and format the required text with the <href></href> tag. To see the list of all available tags, refer to HTML Text Formatting.

When an end-user clicks the hyperlink, the HyperlinkClick event occurs. Handle it to perform specific operations, depending on the link.


The following example shows how to format a LabelControl‘s text using HTML tags. HTML formatting is enabled with the LabelControl.AllowHtmlString property. To respond to end-user clicks on a hyperlink, the LabelControl.HyperlinkClick event is handled. The image below shows the result:


labelControl1.Text = "<size=14>Size = 14<br>" +
                     "<b>Bold</b> <i>Italic</i> <u>Underline</u><br>" + 
                     "<size=11>Size = 11<br>" + 
                     "<color=255, 0, 0>Sample Text</color></size>" +
labelControl1.AllowHtmlString = true;
labelControl1.Appearance.TextOptions.WordWrap = DevExpress.Utils.WordWrap.Wrap;
labelControl1.Appearance.Options.UseTextOptions = true;
labelControl1.AutoSizeMode = DevExpress.XtraEditors.LabelAutoSizeMode.Vertical;
labelControl1.HyperlinkClick += LabelControl1_HyperlinkClick;

private void labelControl1_HyperlinkClick(object sender, DevExpress.Utils.HyperlinkClickEventArgs e) {
