    can someone help me about how to make a hyper link? I have already made the link text. Its my first time making this so i really need help, I'm a noob at this lol. I got this idea from exrix920 GCF downloader, sorry if I'm copying it, I'm just trying to learn, also can you please tell me how to put the progress bar when downloading and also how to link the downloads with the drop down box and also the button.


    Thanks for reading,

    What is the hyperlink supposed to do?
    Simply navigate to an url?
    Then you could simply use the Hyperlink.NavigateUrl property ;)

    You can also do. Process.Start("Link here") or Shell("link here")
    Either of those should also work.

    No, shell will not unless the link points to file://whatever.exe. Use start for all instances that you want to load a webpage.

    So double click the URL you made in the designer and for the code put:
    Of course the hyperlinklabel part has to match the name of the control.

    Oh, sorry for the late reply.

    Well, I did..
    Dim mDir As String =
    Download(mDir + fileSelect.SelectedItem)
    That should get you started, need anything else post back ;).

    How about learning a language that doesn't rely on dragging and dropping?

    or you could open a new window for Firefox or any other web browser with whatever URL you want to visit.
