Passing additional (non-data bound) parameters from a GridView hyperlink.

Hello gurus. I am in need of passing an additional parameter from a GridView hyperlink.  The value I need to pass is not in the data bound to the GridView control; so I can't do it by simply adding paramters to DataNavigateUrlFields and DataNavigateUrlFormatString. I used to accomplish this with the old DataGrid control like so:

private void dg1_ItemDataBound(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs e)
{
      if(e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
      {
            ((HyperLink)e.Item.Cells[0].Controls[0]).NavigateUrl += "&PgIndex=" + curPgIndex;
            ((HyperLink)e.Item.Cells[0].Controls[0]).NavigateUrl += "&XName=" + Request.QueryString["XName"];
            ((HyperLink)e.Item.Cells[0].Controls[0]).NavigateUrl += "&strSQL=" + strSQL;
            ((HyperLink)e.Item.Cells[0].Controls[0]).NavigateUrl += "&XState=" + Request.QueryString["XState"];
      }
}

... but, of course, the new GridView control is different.
How do I accomplish this?
I am in an urgent time crunch.
Thank you in advance for your advise.
