Auto-Linking URLs in C# and VB.NET

The Chilkat.CkString class will include a autoLinkUrls method to automatically find and create HTML hyperlinks for URLs found in text. It is available in the pre-release for the 2.0 Framework at

It will be available in all platforms (ActiveX, C++, Perl, Ruby, Java, Python, etc.) in the next official release. Here is an example:

            Chilkat.CkString str = new Chilkat.CkString();
            str.append("This is a test ( of the URL auto-linking.");
            textBox1.Text = str.getString();

After auto-linking, the text becomes:

This is a test (<a href=""></a>) of the URL auto-linking.
