Event Data

The HyperlinkClick event's data class is DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.Events.VGridHyperlinkClickEventArgs.


The control’s OptionsView.AllowHtmlText property enables the use of HTML tags to format text in the following elements:

You can use HTML tags to insert hyperlinks. The default behavior is to display hyperlinks, but restrict their activation on mouse events.

Set the control’s OptionsBehavior.HyperlinkClickMode property to Click to allow users to activate hyperlinks on a mouse click. Set this property to CtrlClick to activate hyperlinks on a mouse click combined with the CTRL key.

Handle the control’s HyperlinkClick event to perform actions when a hyperlink is activated.


In the following example, a Vertical Grid’s record headers contain hyperlinks that display employees’ e-mails. The VGridOptionsBehavior.HyperlinkClickMode property is set to CtrlClick to allow users to activate hyperlinks on a mouse click when the CTRL key is pressed down. The VGridControlBase.HyperlinkClick event handler starts a process that opens a clicked hyperlink.
