create link inside label field?

Hey guys, hoping someone can shed some light on this.


I'd like to create a link inside a labelfield, much like the twitter app. So the whole label isn't a link, only a select part of the label... I'm also making an assumption here that they're using a labelfield here haha. Any ideas?

Re: create link inside label field?

Take a look at ActiveRichTextField in the javadocs.


This provides the function of recognizing and highlighting active text areas (like phone numbers or URLs) and providing a context menu item like "Call 555-111-1212" or "Get Link".
