Urltext class

The Urltext class is used to show a simple text object that is highlighted when the mouse is over it and that opens an url via OpenURL if clicked.

Note that Urltext.mcc is a subclass of Area.mui and not of Text.mui; it means that the value of Text attribute can't contains MUI text engine codes.

Urltext is a subclass of Urltext.mcc so you must have Urltext.mcc in MUI:Libs/MUI to use it.
