hyperlinks in vb5

I am developing an activex document application for an intranet site, and need to create hyperlinks which can be used to navigate through the application.  I need these to work in the same way as they do on HTML pages where the text is a different color and the mouse changes when moved over the link, and a single click will perform the navigation.  Will I have to program the mouse events for the text box or label, or is there a 'proper' way this can be done, and be recognized by the web browser as a link.

You can use a regular label with the font and color adjusted accordingly as a hyperlink. Set the .MousePointer to vbCustom, and .MouseIcon to the image of the hand. In the _Click event, Use ShellExecute with the URL

You can use a screen capture utility to capture the screen image when the pointer is on a hyperlink in a browser, and then extract the hand part to an icon file
