Partial hyperlink not working


I am adding an hyperlink to a workbook using the following:
worksheet.Hyperlinks.Add(row, col, 1, 1, link);

The link is added to the Excel as it should and everything is fine for the following links:
http://www.aspose.com (or anything else that stsrts with http://)
\mycomputer\mypath (or anything else that starts with \)

However, if the link is not complete, by example: www.google.ca (no http), Excel displays a pop-up message saying that it “Cannot open the specified file”. If I enter the link manually in Excel, everything is fine. I noticed that the tooltips are not the same.

Is there a way to make incomplete hyperlinks work?

Thank you!

Hi Marie,

Well, I think MS Excel works same as Aspose.Cells.
If you could check, when the Address is simple “www.aspose.ca”, MS Excel won’t navigate to the correct link unless you provide full url e.g “http://www.google.ca/”. When you start typing manually in Hyperlink dialog’s Address field e.g “www…”, MS Excel automatically adds “http://” at the start for you.

Thank you.

Hi Amjad,

Thanks for your response.

However, “www.aspose.ca” doesn’t work because it does not exist. If you enter “www.aspose.com”, even without the full url, it works.

Is there a way to do the same with Aspose?

Thanks this fix worked for me too.

Every time I used _worksheet.Hyperlinks.Add(row, column, 1, 1, url); the value was been replaced with the URL for me it was not just partial but proper Urls that work in a previous version. Got this when I upgrade from 4.7.1 to 4.8.2 not sure when it was broken.

Thank you for fix !
