I am trying to get the value of a database table column and use it to navigate to a different web page.  I am using the following syntax which works.  It redirects to the new page and passes the value of "refurl" but it does not pass the value of "Story_ID".  

<asp:HyperLink id="show_story" runat="server"
NavigateUrl='~/view_story.aspx?refurl=default.aspx&story=<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Story_ID") %>

On its own, <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Story_ID") %> returns the value stored in Story_ID.

I am trying to use this in a repeater control on a asp.net web page.

Hi Mike_Stevens,
In one of my projects I have same syntax of generating URL in repeater and everything work well.
Probably, you forgot to bind data to repeater?

Syntax must be such following:
Repeater1.DataSource = values;
Repeater1.DataBind();

If you use SqlDataSource or ObjectDataSource check out that it filling with values.

Try this mate.

<asp:HyperLink ID="show_story" Runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# "~/view_story.aspx?refurl=default.aspx&story=" + DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Story_ID")%>'>Click Here</asp:HyperLink>

Your code returns  "Conversion from string "~/view_story.aspx?refurl=default" to type 'Double' is not valid."

The "story ID" value is a numeric value.
