Occurs when a link is clicked within the control.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
Typically, the event is handled to perform tasks when the user clicks on a link in the control. The event handler for the event is passed an instance of the LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs class that contains a LinkLabel.Link object that is associated with the link that was clicked. You can use information specified in the LinkData property of LinkLabel.Link class to determine which link was clicked or what type of task to perform when the link is clicked. For example, if a LinkLabel control has a LinkLabel.Link object defined with its LinkData property set to the string www.microsoft.com, you can use this information in an event handler for the event to display the Web site.
For more information about handling events, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following example demonstrates using the LinkLabel class, with multiple LinkArea sections defined, to display a label on a form. The example demonstrates setting the AutoSize, LinkBehavior, DisabledLinkColor, LinkColor, and VisitedLinkColor properties to customize the look of the LinkLabel. The first LinkArea is specified using the LinkLabel.LinkArea property. Additional links are added to the LinkLabel using the LinkLabel.LinkCollection.Add method. The example handles the event by starting the Web browser for hyperlinks, and displaying a MessageBox for other links.
