bulleted list help

I have a bulleted list control on my page and have successfully binded data to the list:

if (!Page.IsPostBack)
{

BulletedList1.DataSource = EmploymentOpportunityDAO.GetList();
BulletedList1.DataValueField = "ID";
BulletedList1.DataTextField = "title";
BulletedList1.DataBind();
}

What I'd like to do is set the DataTextField to a link and pass the DataValueField in a QueryString to my details page, EmploymentDetails.aspx, so I can display all the data.

I'm trying to do something like the following:
"<li><a href='EmploymentDetails.aspx?id=" + emp.ID + "'>" + emp.title.ToUpper() + "</a></li>"

I just don't know how to do this with a bulleted list control?


Also how can I convert the DataTextField to uppercase?  I was trying to use ToUpper(), but I'm not coding it correctly.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks budda,

How do I set the datavaluefield as a querystring?

I'm trying:

DataValueField="employmentdetails.aspx?id= + employment_opportunity_id"

that doesn't work.  What is the correct syntax?

Thanks for your help.
