Simple Hyperlink Static Control

Environment: VC6 SP5

I referred to "CScrollHotStatic!XHyperlink and Scroll CStatic Class" by Zhibin Cao when I wrote this control. There are two public functions in CHyperlinkStatic:

void SetHyperlink(CString strHyperlink)
void SetCaption(CString strCaption)

SetHyperlink is used to set the hyperlink where you will surf if you click it. SetCaption is used to set the caption you will see.

When the cursor is over the caption, it will become a "Hand" cursor. The caption of the control is also underlined. Simple is the best. I don't have other information to talk about. Enjoy! :-)

    If you would like to change the url and caption, for example to display different items from a database,
    change the SetCaption-method like this:

    void CHyperlinkStatic::SetCaption(CString strCaption)
    _strCaption = strCaption;
    _bGetCaptionSize = false;

    Without SetWindowText(NULL) and Invalidate the class don't paint the changes.

    If you have some problems with IDC_HAND type this in HyperlinkStatic.h on top:

    #ifndef IDC_HAND

    but sorry i couldnt compile the Demo project.
    because of resource Error :
    HyperlinkDemo.rc(20) : fatal error RC4214: Codepage not valid: ignored
    Error executing rc.exe.

    I think the reason is chiness language in resource and may
    change it to:

    #pragma code_page(1252)
