Property Value

The location within the text of the LinkLabel control where the link starts.

To specify text from the LinkLabel to display as a link, set the Start property to the location in the text to start creating the link. After the Start property is set, set the value of the Length property to the number of characters, including the character position specified in the Start property, that you want to make the link text. For example, if you want to make the first word of the text "The quick brown fox" a link, you set the Start property to zero (0) and the Length property to three (3).
