I know SWT has a Link class to create HTML a href style links as widgets, but I wast trying to find a way to make certain text in a StyledText control appear and function as a link.
I feel like Eclipse does this in their code editor if you hold down control and hover over a method name, but I know the Eclipse java editor is much more complicated than a StyledText control.
Since JFace 3.5, there is a special style for links:
styleRange.underlineStyle = SWT.UNDERLINE_LINK; styleRange.data = "http://www.google.com/";
This makes it much more simple to identify a link and you can store the URL in the style. As for automatically finding links, just look for the pattern
(blanks are not allowed in links) in the lines you get and add the style.
Can HTML-Style links be added to SWT StyledText?
