How to handle custom non existing <a href=".."> in Label with HTML format

Hi,

 

I've got the following question,

 

i got a text from a service that uses some html tags for formating for example <b>,<i>,<a>, etc those <a> tags can contain real links like <a href="http://google.com">google</a> but could also contain internal links like 

<a href="article://456967">Article</a>

 

now when i create my label like this:

 

Label *label = Label::create().multiline(true).format(TextFormat::Html);

// when my netwerk connection is completed
label->text("some html text");


Normal link like the "http://google.com" works like expected but i want to catch the custom url schemes and handle them myself.

 

Anybody any idea?

 

Thx.

I tried that by using the following: ActiveTextHandler *pActiveTextHandler = ActiveTextHandler::create(); connect(pActiveTextHandler, SIGNAL(triggered(ActiveTextTriggeredEvent *event)), this, SLOT(linkPressed(ActiveTextTriggeredEvent *event))); mBody->setActiveTextHandler(pActiveTextHandler); but then it tells me that, bb::cascades::ActiveTextHandler::triggered(ActiveTextTriggeredEvent *event) doesn't exists but if i'm correct this tells me something else.. https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/bb__cascades__activetexthandler.html#triggered

Don't specify argument names in SIGNAL() and SLOT(), there should be only types.

Also specify fully qualified argument types (with namespaces).

I suggest to copy-paste signal definitions from Cascades headers then remove argument names.
