Datagrid query

Working with ASP.NET

I'm interogating each value in a datagrid with the ItemCreated event.

What i'm trying to do is, search for a specified string in a column, if it equals that then set the appropriate DataNavigateURL property, something like this:

               DataGrid dg = (DataGrid)sender;
               HyperLinkColumn hlk = null;
               string str = (string)DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "Status");
               if (str != null)
                    string strStatus = str.Trim();
                    if (strStatus == "FREE")
                         hlk = (HyperLinkColumn)dg.Columns[1];
                         hlk.DataNavigateUrlField = "RoomID";
                         hlk.DataNavigateUrlFormatString = "BookRoom.aspx?RoomID={0}";

This works fine, however

1) If i set this for just one row all of them become underlined, is there a way to just underline certain ones?

2) Can i have more than one querystring, ie i would like to do something like this;

hlk.DataNavigateUrlField = "RoomID,BookedBy";
                         hlk.DataNavigateUrlFormatString = "BookRoom.aspx?RoomID={0}&BookedBy={1}";

But that doesn't work.

Help appreciated.

You could edit the line :

string str = (string)DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "Status");

to read;

endstring str = (string)DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem,,, "Status");

But not sure this will help.
