Application Links

Is it possible in .NET to do the following;

Have a link in our Windows Application which when clicked will start a
program (for example skype) and call the person specified? Id ideally
like to be able to replicate the behaviour of a hyperlink (like <a
href='skype://....'>Click Me</a>) or similar, but within a windows
application,

Cheers

Jamie,

Try the LinkLabel control.

What happens in the click event for this control? I presume something
like process.start("skype://..."), but Im sure of the syntax?

Thanks

You're right, this is how to invoke the default browser on a system and
display a page: Process.Start("http://www.somesite.com")
