ToolStripLabel Class

Represents a nonselectable ToolStripItem that renders text and images and can display hyperlinks.

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

[ToolStripItemDesignerAvailabilityAttribute(ToolStripItemDesignerAvailability.ToolStrip)]
public class ToolStripLabel : ToolStripItem

Use the ToolStripLabel class to create a label that can render text and images that can implement the ToolStripItem.TextAlign and ToolStripItem.ImageAlign properties. The ToolStripLabel also has many properties that enable it to display one or more hyperlinks, and other properties that modify the appearance and behavior of hyperlinks.

The ToolStripLabel is like a ToolStripButton that does not get focus by default and that does not render as pushed or highlighted.

ToolStripLabel as a hosted item supports access keys.

Use the LinkColor, LinkVisited, and LinkBehavior properties on a ToolStripLabel to support link control in a ToolStrip.

The following code example demonstrates how to initialize a ToolStripLabel to contain a link by setting the IsLink, LinkColor, ActiveLinkColor, VisitedLinkColor, LinkVisited and LinkBehavior properties.

    }

    private void InitializeComponent()
    {
        this.toolStrip1 = new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStrip();
        this.toolStripLabel1 = new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripLabel();
        this.toolStrip1.SuspendLayout();
        this.SuspendLayout();
        //

        this.toolStrip1.Items.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem[] {
            this.toolStripLabel1});
        this.toolStrip1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
        this.toolStrip1.Name = "toolStrip1";

        this.toolStripLabel1.Name = "toolStripLabel1";
        this.toolStripLabel1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(71, 22);
        this.toolStripLabel1.Tag = "http://search.microsoft.com/search/search.aspx?";
        this.toolStripLabel1.Text = "Search MSDN";
        this.toolStripLabel1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.toolStripLabel1_Click);
        //  
        // Form1 
        //  
        this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 273);
        this.Controls.Add(this.toolStrip1);
        this.Name = "Form1";
        this.toolStrip1.ResumeLayout(false);
        this.toolStrip1.PerformLayout();
        this.ResumeLayout(false);
        this.PerformLayout();

    }

    private void toolStripLabel1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        ToolStripLabel toolStripLabel1 = (ToolStripLabel)sender;

        // Start Internet Explorer and navigate to the URL in the 
        // tag property.
        System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("IEXPLORE.EXE", toolStripLabel1.Tag.ToString());

        // Set the LinkVisited property to true to change the color.
        toolStripLabel1.LinkVisited = true;
    }
}
