Urgent! How to set a static text to be a link? (VC++)

Hi there,

I am a beginner in VC++ programming.
What I want is like below:

A dialog box, and a static text in the dialog box.
This static text looks like "http://www.XXX.com" and is
with white background color / blue text color and underline.

when the user clicks the static text, the IE is opened and
connect to the specified web site.

Could anybody teach me about this or just give me the sample
code? I really need this as soon as possible. Thanks a lot!!

Here is my sample code for my About Dlg that does exactly what you need:

IDC_WEBSITE is a static control in the About Dlg, and I am processing it inside WM_COMMAND (you don't need the internet checking but it's better to have it there to make sure the user is connected and if not to pop up their default dialer)

case IDC_WEBSITE:

// Attempt to connect to the internet

if ( InternetGetConnectedState(lpdwConnectionFlags, 0) == FALSE )
{      

if ( MessageBox(hDlg, "Connect to the Internet?", szAppName, MB_YESNO | MB_ICONQUESTION) == IDYES
)
{

if ( InternetAttemptConnect(0) != ERROR_SUCCESS )
{
MessageBox(hDlg, "Unable to Connect.", szAppName, MB_OK | MB_ICONERROR);

return FALSE;
}
}
else
return FALSE;
}

ShellExecute(hDlg, NULL, "www.yourwebsitehere.com", NULL, NULL, SW_MAXIMIZE);
                                    
return FALSE;

Sorry about the text formatting :)
