RichTextBox.LinkClicked Event

Occurs when the user clicks on a link within the text of the control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public event LinkClickedEventHandler LinkClicked

You can create an event handler for this event to process a link that has been clicked within the control. Using the information provided to the event handler, you can determine which link was clicked in the document.

Important noteImportant

By default, links are displayed as text and are not clickable. To make them clickable set the DetectUrls property to true.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example contains an event handler for the LinkClicked event. The event handler processes link clicks within the document of a RichTextBox control and launches an instance of the default browser (using the Process.Start method), displaying the page for the link that was clicked. This example requires that the event handler has been connected to the LinkClicked event for a RichTextBox.


private void Link_Clicked (object sender, System.Windows.Forms.LinkClickedEventArgs e)
{
   System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(e.LinkText);
}
