<asp:HyperLink not evaluating the column in DataGridView

Hi,

I have the following inside of a DataGridView:

                        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl="DealEntry.aspx?TradeId='<%#Eval('TradeId')%>'"
                            Text='Select'></asp:HyperLink>


When it passes it to the DealEntry it does not evaluate it.  Instead I get the following URL:

http://localhost/Test/DealEntry.aspx?TradeId='<%#Eval('TradeId')%>'

Thanks

Like this ...

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='DealEntry.aspx?TradeId=<%#Eval("TradeId")%>' Text='Select'></asp:HyperLink>

Thanks for the information.

I copied your example directly into my code and it did not work.  It gives this as the URL:

http://localhost/Test/DealEntry.aspx?TradeId=<%#Eval("TradeId")%>

It doesn't seem to evaluate the column.

Thanks

Is everything else in the datagrid bound? Could you please show us the whole DataGrid tag. Also what version of .Net are you using? This would work in 2.0 only. For 1.0 and 1.1 you have to use Databinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "TradedId")

To debug change

                <asp:TemplateField>
                    <ItemTemplate>
                                        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='DealEntry.aspx?TradeId=<%#Eval("TradeId")%>' Text='Select'></asp:HyperLink>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>

to

                <asp:TemplateField>
                    <ItemTemplate>
                            TradeId : <%# Eval("TradeId") %><br>
                            <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='DealEntry.aspx?TradeId=<%#Eval("TradeId")%>' Text='Select'></asp:HyperLink>                    
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>

What do you get? How many rows do you get?

Hi,

When I do that I get the proper Trade Id. It doesn't seem to evaluate it correctly in the Hyperlink though.  Very strange!

Do it like this ...

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# "DealEntry.aspx?TradeId=" & Eval("TradeId") %>' Text='Select'></asp:HyperLink>

If you are using C# use + instead of &.
