Hotlink control for dialog?

I am looking for some code to implement a Win32 Window class to provide a hot-link text control.  Similar to the new SysLink control in the XP common controls.  I am not using MFC or any add-ons... I would like just a standard Window procedure function that I can use in creating a WINDOWCLASS.

Just a plane old text control, but must be standard blue hot link color, provide pointer finger on mouse over and when clicked, bring up the appropriate application to handle the associated link (FTP, HTTP, MAILTO:, etc.).

Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff

Nick,

This was exactly what I was looking for!  A simple, straigh forward implementation... all I found elsewhere was long, bloated MFC junk.

One question though... is there any reason you subclass the RichEdit32 control instead if just the plain old static control?

Thanks,
Jeff

A plain static control does not support different text colors. You can use it, but it will contain a hyplink only and nothing else.
