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 following code example demonstrates how to initialize a ToolStripLabel to contain a link by setting the IsLink, LinkColor, ActiveLinkColor, VisitedLinkColor, LinkVisited and LinkBehavior properties. To run this example, paste the following code into a form and call the InitializeLinkLabel method from the form's constructor or Load event handler.
