Event Data

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

Property Description
Handled Gets or sets whether the event is handled. If the event is handled, the browser does not open.
Link Get or sets the URL of the clicked hyperlink. Inherited from HyperlinkClickEventArgs.
MouseArgs Gets or sets mouse coordinates calculated from the toolbar’s upper left corner. Inherited from HyperlinkClickEventArgs.

If the current label contains a hyperlink and the SingleClick option is enabled, a browser opens when a user clicks or double-clicks the label. The OpenHyperlink event fires before the browser is opened and allows you to cancel the action.

Use the BrowserWindowStyle property to specify whether the browser window is maximized, minimized, or collapsed when opened.
