Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to initialize a ToolStripLabel to contain a link by setting the IsLink, LinkColor, ActiveLinkColor, VisitedLinkColor, LinkVisited and LinkBehavior properties.

Remarks

A LinkLabel control does not automatically denote that a link is a visited link. To display the link as a visited link, you can set the value of this property to true in an event handler for the click event of the LinkLabel. A visited link is displayed using the color specified in the VisitedLinkColor property of the ToolStripLabel control.
