[Suggestion] right click on a hyperlink in the source code to give a popup menu item for "Visit Link"

Perfectly, like the attached screenshot of the "Follow Link" feature of visual Studio code (provided by Warreñ Postma on Facebook)

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately there currently is no code in GExperts to react to mouse events in the editor (at least I'm not aware of any). So this would not be a simple extension based on existing mechanisms, but has to be done from scratch, possibly different for all supported versions and tested accordingly.

Feel free to file it as a feature request, but don't hold your breath.

 

Did you submit it as a feature request to embarcadero? They would have it much easier to implement it.

I'm already doing it here, right? :)

They posted the suggestion on the Delphi facebook group already, and I thought GExperts might be able to do it, so my report here. I don't want to upgrade Delphi always, so I'm not very enthusiastic to do that :)

Please file a feature request on sourceforge if you think it important enough.

"Follow Link" feature

Brilliant idea!

 

Of course, it should also resolve this kind of URLs:

... of course, opening this link in File Explorer.

Also, this kind of URL resolution would be very useful:

This would execute MyApp.exe and pass the current unit file as a parameter.

You can already configure a Tools menu entry to do that.

I know, but I just wanted to expand on the possibilities of different future URL types in source code comments.
