How do you change the Font and Font size of this control

This would be really useful if it could be tied to a data source. As an example I have a form that displays links to external documentation based on the application being viewed but currently have to use a “Follow Link” button clunky at best.

Ive notice the tooltip for the URL property says “Website address to navigate to when the link is selected. Ignored when the control is used as a button through the As property.” Do you know anything about using the ‘As’ property with the link?
