Hi,

i would like to change cursor for data field label in RadDataLayout, to make it work as hyperlink, I set it font as below, but can't find any cursor property, is it possible?

Private Sub RadDataLayout1_ItemInitialized(sender As Object, e As Telerik.WinControls.UI.DataLayoutItemInitializedEventArgs)

            Dim ci As DataLayoutControlItem = e.Item
            e.Item.Font = New System.Drawing.Font(e.Item.Font.Name, e.Item.Font.Size, FontStyle.Underline)

end sub

Thanks

Alex

Hello Alex,

Currently, due to the specifics of RadDataLayout control, it is not possible to change the cursor when the mouse hovers the label that shows the data field. The reason is that this control contains a specific DataLayoutControlItem that hosts the labels and controls within itself and can not be easily accessed and modified.

However, I can suggest you to consider using the RadDataEntry control. It has a similar look and feel as RadDataLayout, excluding the customize dialog that enables a transformation of the control`s layout at run time. In RadDataEntry control, you can access the label from the Panel.Controls collection and you will be able to change the mouse cursor as you want. Please refer to the following code snippet:

Private Sub RadDataEntry1_ItemInitialized(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ItemInitializedEventArgs)
    If e.Panel.Controls.Count = 0 Then
        Return
    End If

    Dim label As RadLabel = TryCast(e.Panel.Controls(1), RadLabel)

    If label IsNot Nothing Then
        label.Font = New System.Drawing.Font(label.Font.Name, label.Font.Size, FontStyle.Underline)
        label.Cursor = Cursors.Hand
        label.Click += Me.Label_Click
    End If
End Sub

I hope this will be useful. Please let me know if you have additional questions.

Regards,
Nadya

Thanks Nadya,

but I have already switched from RadDataEntry to RadDataLayout due to other feature...

Ok, not a big deal with this mouse cursor
