i use this code but it does not give me hyperlink:

 HyperLink1.NavigateUrl = "javascript:var w=window.open('TestPage.aspx','', 'width=625,height=760,scrollbars=yes,resizeable=yes');"
I suggest you use a LinkButton instead, then in the click event of the link button, add the following:

You could build a WebCustomControl, inherit from the hyperlink control, and then use AddAttributesToRender to add javascript to the start 'a' tag.  You'd still be 'using' the Hyperlink Control.  Sounds like a school project?

is it so difficult? oh man
This PAQd item has some sample code for a WebCustomControl.  You should look through it, it's pretty self-explanitory, and it might just do the trick.  Basically, I would inherit from the Hyperlink control, and use the Click event handler.
