This question already has an answer here:

I have 2 URLs:

  1. Anatomy of a "Memory Leak"

  2. http://forums.asp.net/t/1917189.aspx/1?How+to+find+single+value+in+string

the 1st one is the stack overflow URL and the 2nd one is another website URL.But when we put the stack overflow URL ,this automatically change (Anatomy of a "Memory Leak") URL to HyperLink format

URL :http://stackoverflow.com/questions/104/anatomy-of-a-memory-leak

But that URL changed in hyperlink format like :Anatomy of a "Memory Leak"

It's good ! we can manually do this ,for select text and press ctrl+k then past our URL.I didn't said this way. I said for add dynamic text with same functionality (Automatically Change the other site URL To hyperlink format same as when put stack overflow URL) when put other website URL?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Just to be clear, it's not actually changing to a hyperlink that you're asking about - both links changed to a hyperlink. It's automatically inserting the page title into the hyperlink, as opposed to showing the destination URL for external links. –  jcsanyi Jun 26 '13 at 4:57
And I should clarify that even more to point out that it's not actually the page title that's displayed, but the question title. –  jcsanyi Jun 26 '13 at 5:02
I understand ! I just for explained like hyperlink only. –  RameshRams Jun 26 '13 at 5:09

@Rames yes in the other post it's suggested to auto retrieve the title when you put the link using the editor. (currently it's just pushing "enter link description here") –  Shadow Wizard Jun 26 '13 at 7:17
@ShaWizDowArd okay . I saw that. But there is not answer in my question .that's say for we manually do this .for select text and press ctrl+k way . i don't want that.I want add dynamically ?if you understand buddy ? –  RameshRams Jun 26 '13 at 7:38

There are probably sites which actually does this, like Facebook would retrieve the page title and images on the page, but Facebook is a social networking site which has actual need to do this to entertain their users. Bot StackExchange sites are unlike Facebook, it is not a social networking site. Users post links as references, usually giving them a descriptive (or not so descriptive) text.

For example:

You can use Form.Show() to show the form.

Sometimes the title of links may not even be important at all. For example, links to jsfiddle/codepad/pastebin/ideone/etc... How useful will it be to show "PHP code - 14 lines - codepad" as the title of a link? Or "Edit This Fiddle - jsfiddle"?

I think this function may not be quite useful then.
