Origin supports various types of hyperlinks in text labels. The syntax for links is as follows:

range://: indicates a range inside the project.
http:// or https://: indicates an external link.
help://: indicates a link to the Origin help documentation.
note://: indicates a link to a Notes window.

In each case, the link is put into the text box in the object Properties Programming tab (Alt+double click on the text label) while the displayed text is put into the text box on the Text tab (Double-click). The text label will be underlined indicating that it is a hyperlink.

A text label can also be made into a button that performs some action when clicked. See Examples 3 and 4 for instructions.
