Oops, I meant:

ShellExecute(handle, "open", http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?ta=cplusprog&qid=20141167, NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

Perhaps I got it right this time.

See the 2nd question at:

http://www.microsoft.com/msj/defaultframe.asp?page=/msj/1297/c++1297.htm&nav=/msj/1297/newnav.htm

Here, there is a CStaticLink class described that enhances the MFC CStatic control to do what I think you want to do.  It seem you are using Borland and their "label" control which I think is about the same as CStatic.  I'm sure the code will need to be a bit different but the concept should be similar.

ShellExecute( this->Handle, "open", URLLabel->Caption.c_str( ), NULL, NULL, SW_SHOW );
