The Windows Forms
LinkLabel control enables you to add Web-style links to Windows Forms applications. We can use the
LinkLabel control for everything that we can use the Label control for; we also can set part of the text as a link to an object or Web page.
The LinkLabel control has properties for hyperlinks and link colors in addition to all the Label control properties, methods, and events. The
LinkArea property sets the area of the text that activates the link. The
ActiveLinkColor properties set the colors of the link. The
LinkClicked event determines what happens when the link text is selected.
The easiest way to use the LinkLabel control is to display a single link using the
LinkArea property, but using the
Links property we can also display multiple hyperlinks.The Links property enables us to access a collection of links. We can also specify data in the LinkData property of each individual
LinkLabel.Link object. The value of the
LinkData property can be used to store a display file's location or a website's address.
