Link column in gridview

 I have a grid view with contain 2 columns
1) file name
2) opetion to delete the row

How do I display the column of file name as a link to open the file, all the files are in the same folder

The file name column should be of the type HyperLinkField. Then you can set the NavigateUrl property to be the file name.

If you have the GridView in design mode edit the columns in the GridView task pane and replace the file name column with a HyperLinkField. Or you could convert the file name column to a TemplateField and edit the template (normally ItemTemplate) and replace the Label with a HyperLink. Don't forget to bind the NavigateUrl.

Hope this helps!
