This class shows a static text element which links to an URL.

Appearance and behaviour is completely customizable.

In fact, when the user clicks on the hyperlink, a wx.adv.HyperlinkEvent is sent but if that event is not handled (or it’s skipped; see wx.Event.Skip ), then a call to wx.LaunchDefaultBrowser is done with the hyperlink’s URL.

Note that standard wx.Window functions like wx.Window.SetBackgroundColour , wx.Window.SetFont , wx.Window.SetCursor , wx.Window.SetLabel can be used to customize appearance of the hyperlink.

## Window Styles¶

This class supports the following styles:

• wx.adv.HL_ALIGN_LEFT: Align the text to the left.

• wx.adv.HL_ALIGN_RIGHT: Align the text to the right. This style is not supported under Windows.

• wx.adv.HL_ALIGN_CENTRE: Center the text (horizontally). This style is not supported under Windows.

• wx.adv.HL_CONTEXTMENU: Pop up a context menu when the hyperlink is right-clicked. The context menu contains a “Copy URL” menu item which is automatically handled by the hyperlink and which just copies in the clipboard the URL (not the label) of the control.

• wx.adv.HL_DEFAULT_STYLE: The default style for wx.adv.HyperlinkCtrl: BORDER_NONE|wxHL_CONTEXTMENU|wxHL_ALIGN_CENTRE.

## Events Emitted by this Class¶

• EVT_HYPERLINK: The hyperlink was (left) clicked. If this event is not handled in user’s code (or it’s skipped; see wx.Event.Skip ), then a call to LaunchDefaultBrowser is done with the hyperlink’s URL.

Currently this class is implemented using native support in wxGTK and wxMSW and a generic version is used by the other ports.
