Remarks

In Internet Explorer 8 and later, all IHlink interface methods are deprecated except IHlink::GetMonikerReference, IHlink::GetStringReference, ITargetEmbedding::GetTargetFrame, and IHlink::GetMiscStatus.

The IHlink interface enables a Component Object Model (COM) object called a hyperlink to completely encapsulate the behavior of navigating to its target location. Hyperlinks are managed by COM hyperlink container objects, which support the IHlinkSite interface for hyperlinks in the container, and the IHlinkTarget interface for hyperlinks referring to documents or document objects in it.

A document can use the standard Hyperlink object to represent hyperlinks within itself, thus encapsulating the capability of navigating, saving, loading, dragging, dropping, cutting, and pasting hyperlinks. The standard Hyperlink object implements the IHlink interface, the IPersistStream interface, and the IDataObject interface.

The support for IPersistStream means that the Hyperlink object can be saved to a stream or loaded from a stream, and the support for IDataObject means that the object can be cut and pasted.

IHlink interfaces are typically called by an application hyperlink container as part of a user interface for creating new hyperlinks. A standard Hyperlink object can be created through the HlinkCreateFromData function, the HlinkCreateFromMoniker function, the HlinkCreateFromString function, and the OleLoadFromStream function.
