I'd like to provide a URL in my window, by RichTextCtrl.
But how to open it? Thinking about system(). But don't know what default browser is, so cannot achieve this.
Even under Windows, this seems a problem, too. "explorer http://..." may work. But not satisfactory to me anyway.

In QTF links can be created in following way:

To my best knowledge, it opens link in default browser (using xdg-open on my Ubuntu, not sure how windows solution works).

More details can be found in manual.

As dolik.rce correctly explained, you can just put link into QTF.

But maybe we owe you more detailed explanation. There is

	Callback1<const String&> WhenLink;


in RichTextView (RichTextCtrl base). If you click on link in RichText, this one gets invoked.

Its default value points to

void    LaunchWebBrowser(const String& url)


which attempts to open default system browser with given url (see implementation for nasty details Smile

OIC. I implemented WhenLink myself, so came the trouble.
Thanks.
