Hi,

Is there a way to display in the minibuffer the URL of the link under
the point in the same way as when the mouse pointer is over the link?

Thanks!

M-x display-local-help might do it.

I use this variable to toggle my Gnu Emacs Org-Mode buffer into an audio
desktop:

(setq tooltip-use-echo-area (not tooltip-use-echo-area))

Of course I had to do some programming to do that but the above should get
you started

And we can leave that programming as an exercise for the class--right Dr.
Kitchin?

;-)

It looks like that variable is obsolete now since Emacs 24.1, and
(tooltip-mode -1) is probably the way to get the same thing now.

Hi,

Thanks both of you for your answers. 

What would be the way to automatically trigger =display-local-help= when the point is on the link? Org-ref does that beautifully ;)

Thanks again.

Garjola

org-ref doesn't do anything fancy here, it just runs an idle timer:

https://github.com/jkitchin/org-ref/blob/master/org-ref-core.el#L597

that runs a function defined at
https://github.com/jkitchin/org-ref/blob/master/org-ref-core.el#L3633

that function is kind of long because it computes the message, and only
in specific contexts.

Hi,

This is what I did:

(when (not (or (looking-at " ")	;looking at a space
		 (looking-at "^$")	;looking at a blank line
		 (looking-at "]")	;looking at a bracket at the end
					;looking at the end of the line.
		 (looking-at "$")))

    (save-restriction
      (widen)
      (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
        (let* ((object (org-element-context))
               (type (org-element-property :type object))
               (link-content (org-element-property :path object)))
          (save-excursion
            (message "%s:%s" type link-content))))))


It seems to do what I want.

Thank you very much for your help.

Garjola
