Class Hyperlink

All Implemented Interfaces:
Direct Known Subclasses:

public class Hyperlink extends AbstractHyperlink
Hyperlink is a concrete implementation of the abstract base class that draws text in the client area. Text can be wrapped and underlined. Hyperlink is typically added to the hyperlink group so that certain properties are managed for all the hyperlinks that belong to it.

Hyperlink can be extended.

    • getToolTipText

      public String getToolTipText()
      Description copied from class: Control
      Returns the receiver's tool tip text, or null if it has not been set.
      getToolTipText in class Control
      the receiver's tool tip text
    • setToolTipText

      public void setToolTipText(String string)
      Description copied from class: Control
      Sets the receiver's tool tip text to the argument, which may be null indicating that the default tool tip for the control will be shown. For a control that has a default tool tip, such as the Tree control on Windows, setting the tool tip text to an empty string replaces the default, causing no tool tip text to be shown.

      The mnemonic indicator (character '&') is not displayed in a tool tip. To display a single '&' in the tool tip, the character '&' can be escaped by doubling it in the string.

      NOTE: This operation is a hint and behavior is platform specific, on Windows for CJK-style mnemonics of the form " (&C)" at the end of the tooltip text are not shown in tooltip.

      setToolTipText in class Control
      string - the new tool tip text (or null)
