I have a server list generated into a gridview, one if the features I'd like to add is the ability to place a button in a new column, which when clicked, launches an RDP session from the local windows pc accessing the web page.

I'm looking at a way to progamatically apply the IP address to the button code each time the gridview is generated.

Thanks

There's perhaps a conceptual problem here...

Launching something on the client PC from a web server is never a good design choice.  In fact, the entire industry is moving to prevent this type of situation from happening.   Every major advance in web server design and web browser design is tighening what can be lauched on the client.

Ok, enough preaching...

You could install and use the RDP ActiveX component distributed by Microsoft
