AddLink(<Edit control> , <Start position of the link> , <End position of the link> , <WLanguage procedure> [, <Procedure parameter>])
<Edit control>: Control name
Name of the edit control to use.
<Start position of the link>: Integer
Position of the first character of the link. The index of the first character in the control is set to 1. The function has no effect if the start position of the link is greater than the size of the text.
<End position of the link>: Integer
Position of the first character after the link. The function has no effect if the end position of the link is less than the start position of the link.
<WLanguage procedure>: Procedure name
Name of the WLanguage procedure called when the link is clicked on.
For more details on this procedure, see Parameters of the procedure used by AddLink.
<Procedure parameter>: Optional variant
Parameter that will be passed to the procedure when the link is clicked on. If this parameter is not specified, the procedure will receive no parameter.
  • AddLink can be used on text and RTF Edit controls (but not on HTML Edit controls).
  • To remove a link, simply update the content of the control (without the link).
  • Links added with AddLink are lost when content is copied to the clipboard or when ScreenToFile is called. In the latter case, only the HTML content is copied into the HFSQL buffer.
  • The color of the links can be configured by LinkColor.
Component: wd290obj.dll
