Hi Ganeshram,

Thank you for writing us.

Currently, RadGridView does not support a hyperlink column. We will consider implementing this functionality in our upcoming Q1 2008 release.

The following code demonstrates how to change the font and the color of a column to represent a hyperlink:

Font font;  
this.radGridView1.CellFormatting += new CellFormattingEventHandler(radGridView1_CellFormatting);  
this.radGridView1.CellClick += new GridViewCellEventHandler(radGridView1_CellClick);  
this.radGridView1.DataSource = table;  
this.radGridView1.Columns["Name"].ReadOnly = true;  
  
void radGridView1_CellClick(object sender, GridViewCellEventArgs e)  
{  
    if (e.ColumnIndex == 1 && e.RowIndex > 0)  
    {  
        Process.Start("http://www.google.com");  
    }  
}  
  
  
void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)  
{  
    if (e.CellElement is GridDataCellElement)  
    {  
        if (((GridViewDataColumn)e.CellElement.ColumnInfo).DataField == "Name")  
        {  
            e.CellElement.Font = font;  
            e.CellElement.ForeColor = Color.Blue;  
        }  
    }  
}

I do not see RadGridView supports hyperlink column yet. Is this being considered. Also as a work around I am trying to change the font to blue and underling the text. Is there a easy way to underline the text? Thanks in advance.

Hello Kumar,

Yes, currently there is no dedicated hyper link column. You should use the code from my previous post. It changes the font color to blue by setting the ForeColor property. To make the font underlined just use the proper definition:

Font font = new Font(SystemFonts.DialogFont, FontStyle.Underline);

I hope this helps.

All the best,

Hi,

You can use the HyperlinkOpening event, which is cancelable and open the form that you want.

More information regarding the hyperlink column is available here: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/gridview-columns-gridviewhyperlinkcolumn.html.

I hope this helps.

Hi, sorry not to explain further.

 I tried using HyperlinkOpening and also HyperlinkOpened event but didn't worked.

What I want to do is when user click the hyperlink, it will open the second form.

 The code:

Private Sub Form2_Load(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

      me.Textbox1.Text = ​Form1.​gridview.CurrentRow.Cells("ID").Value

End Sub

 The problem is it shows the previous selected row index because the hyperlink row only will be selected after Form2 closed.

Hi,

It seems you pasted wrong code snippet. Here is one demonstrating how this can be done:
Private Sub RadGridView1_HyperlinkOpening(sender As Object, e As HyperlinkOpeningEventArgs)
    e.Cancel = True
 
    Dim f As New Form()
    f.Text = e.Column.Name + " " + e.Row.Index
    f.Show()
End Sub

I hope this helps.
