Hi,
Is it possible to use active hyperlinks (both email and web) on a true db grid control?

This is an existing application so i would preferabley like to use the existing control, although if i have to change it i will.

I am suspecting i might have to 'hard code' this feature into the grid like such;

On datagrid result set change event_

test if records exist
test if data content exists for email/web fields
if so then underline field values.

On clickevent for data field;
run a shellexecute routine and launch active content data with default file handler (e.g. web pages --> internet explorer, email to Outlook)

any suggestions?

Thanks
