[Unity3D] Manage links with TextMeshPro

In Unity3D, you can use TextMeshPro or TextMeshProUGUI with embedded links. For example, your text can be:

TextMeshPro Text component with a link

But this is not enough to get it open on click. You also need to handle the click and execute the action you want, based on the link ID (here the link ID is the URL). To do that, just attach this script to the same object of your TextMeshPro or TextMeshProUGUI component.

This will open a simple URL in the device default browser. If you want to execute other actions within the app itself, just remove the OpenURL call and put the code you want.
