ActiveX: HyperLink      (Filename: SLHYPER.OCX)


With the HyperLink ActiveX component you can insert clickable hyperlinks on a form or dialog box.

When a user moves a mouse pointer over the hyperlink the mouse pointer changes to a hand pointer and if the user clicks on the link, a browser is invoked and an Internet page specified by the component is opened. The HyperLink component can also be used to open e-mail clients. You can also specify a rollover color for the hyperlink; that means the hyperlink text will change color when the mouse pointer is hovering above the component.
