Hyperlink in Ribbon

Apr 16, 2010 at 6:05 PM

Any hyperlink in the ribbon fails with the following error:

"'System.Windows.Documents.Hyperlink' is not a Visual or Visual3D."

Hyperlinks are not controls. They cannot be shown in a ribbon any more than they can be shown in any other container, aside from a document. They are document elements.

Thanks for the reply Divelements.  I am developing an XBAP that contains the ribbon.  I would like a help button on the ribbon that takes the user to a separate webpage.  It was my understanding that in partial trust I cannot programatically open up another website in the browser.  The only way to do it is to provide a hyperlink and let the user click on it.

 

In the ribbon, I placed the following:

<r:RibbonLabel >
          <TextBlock Margin="4,0,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Center" >
                   <Hyperlink NavigateUri="http://www.swagelok.com" TargetName="_blank" Focusable="False" Foreground="Black">
                             <TextBlock Text="Help" Focusable="False"/>
                   </Hyperlink>
          </TextBlock>
</r:RibbonLabel>

The link shows up in the ribbon, but when I click on it I get the error from my first post.  Could you point me in the right direction here?
