We use the standard windows UI LinkLabel to display a hyperlink  in our software. I found 

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/knowledge-base/link-label

 

but, the issue with this is it is forcing color/font to the label - which i know a linklabel does. But, doesn't the theme have a linklabel "standard"?

Also, I don't understand the radlabel.linkarea value, and i can't seem to find that explained anywhere.

 

Thanks.

Hello Darin,

I will start with that our Telerik UI for WinForms suite does not include RadLinkLabel control. The KB article describes how you can use the RadLabel control to simulate the MS LinkLabel control. In the example, the color of the RadLabel is changed so it shows that the user has already visited this link. This approach is not themeable. This is a custom solution and if you want to respect the current theme colors, you will need to manually change the code. 

As for your last question, RadLabel control does not have LinkArea property and I am not sure what you are referencing here. May I ask you to elaborate more on your question? In the example, we are using the Process.Start() method to open the link in the browser of your machine.

Not sure what i was looking at with the "linkarea" - sorry for that confusion.

 

I understood that the KB was how to simulate a linklabel - i was just looking for something that is driven by themes - but you don't have one. I guess the easiest way is to make the label text underlined.

 

Thanks for your help.

And now the question is how to take the whatever font is currently being shown and only underline it.

If I have correctly understood your question, you don't want to change the FontFamily property of the font and only change the FontStyle. In this case, you can pass the parameters to the constructor of the Font using the FontFamily and Size properties. Am I in the right direction?

this.Font = new Font(this.Font.FontFamily,this.Font.Size,FontStyle.Underline);
