Interface IHyperlinkPresenter

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultHyperlinkPresenter, MultipleHyperlinkPresenter

public interface IHyperlinkPresenter
A hyperlink presenter shows hyperlinks on the installed text viewer and allows to pick one on of the hyperlinks.

In order to provide backward compatibility for clients of IHyperlinkDetector, extension interfaces are used to provide a means of evolution. The following extension interfaces exist:

  • IHyperlinkPresenterExtension since version 3.4, adds the ability to query whether the currently shown hyperlinks can be hidden.
  • IHyperlinkPresenterExtension2 since version 3.7, adds the ability distinguish between the modes in which the control either takes focus or not when visible.

Clients may implement this interface. A default implementation is provided through DefaultHyperlinkPresenter.
