Linking to the Web

In the previous topic, we linked to a form in the CreateLinkLabel example on the CD-ROM; in this topic, I'll add support for the other hyperlink in that example, which links to You can recover the text "" from the clicked hyperlink with the e.Link.LinkData.ToString method, so you open the user's default browser and navigate to that URL this way:

Private Sub LinkLabel1_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs)
    LinkLabel1.Links(LinkLabel1.Links.IndexOf(e.Link)).Visited = True
    If (e.Link.LinkData.ToString() = "info") Then
        Dim InfoWindow As New Form2()
    End If
End Sub

Now when the user clicks the "here" hyperlink you see in Figure 5.17, the user's default browser opens and navigates to the Coriolis Web site.
