Hot Label Component Overview

Applies to: ~>2.0

This page provides an overview of the features of the Hot Label Component. If you are looking for information on programming with the component please see the Programmers’ Guide.

The Hot Label Component is a simple Delphi component that descends from TLabel. It provides a clickable label that can start the default browser or email client to access a specific URL. Key features of the component are:


The component can be compiled with any Delphi compiler from Delphi 7 through to 11.3. It is compatible with 32 bit and 64 bit Windows targets.

It is possible that the component will also compile with Delphi 4, 5 and 6, but this has not been tested.

This is a VCL component and so is not compatible with the FireMonkey framework.
