I have a radtextbox where I have the font set to blue, cursor to hand, and underlined...our users want it to behave like a hyperlink.  When I hover over the textbox, the HAND cursor only appears when I'm near the border of the control.  When I'm over the actual text, it turns to IBeam...and the Click event isn't fired.  What's the trick.

Hello Elizabeth,

Thank you for writing. Why do you need a text box to behave like a hyperlink? Normally a text box which supports such functionality is actually a rich text editor, which we currently do not provide. The default RadTextBox behaves just like this because it is designed for simple text input. If you need a hyperlink you can tweak our RadLabel to have blue underlined text and set the cursor to hand. Here is how you can do this:

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)  
{  
    this.radLabel1.Cursor = Cursors.Hand;  
    this.radLabel1.Font = new Font("Microsoft Sans Serif", 8.25F, FontStyle.Underline);  
    this.radLabel1.ForeColor = Color.Blue;  
}  
 
private void radLabel1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)  
{  
    System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("http://www.google.com");  

Write again if you have other questions.
