Subject: clickable text in org-mode not working
Date: Mon, 12 Nov 2012 13:42:51 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAJ51EToNYc-b3SsMpt5KyWqGVNa2tN74unqmfzejcDDj8opBXA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

It appears that one cannot define "clickable" text in org-mode. I was
trying to make some text in an org-file respond to different types of
clicking. I know that links provide some functionality for this, but
out of curiosity I wanted to see what else I could do.

If I run the following code on a buffer in text-mode, the first four
characters in the buffer turn blue with a white background, they turn
a light green when the mouse is over them, and finally a message box
pops up when I click on the characters.

(let ((map (make-sparse-keymap)))
     (define-key map (kbd "<down-mouse-1>")
            '(lambda() (interactive) (message-box "it works!")))
     (add-text-properties 1 5 `(keymap, map
                                font-lock-face (:foreground "blue"
                                                :background "white")
                                mouse-face highlight)))

If I switch to org-mode, the clickability and mouse highlighting go
away. They also do not appear when I run the function in an

Does anyone know if there is a feature in org-mode that turns this
off, or if there is a way to get the clickability to work? Is it
related to having links that are clickable?
