Greetings all

I have an image (asp:Image) on my page. When the user clicks on it I would like them to be redircted elsewhere (preferably in another window).

1.  How do I programmatically add a url to the image?
2.  If there is no url available, do I disable the image, or is it ok to just leave it like that, knowing that clicking
    will  do nothing?


In advance, thanks!

The ASP.NET Image control does not have a URL property (I mean something like NavigateUrl property in HyperLink control), though it has an ImageUrl property. So you need to accomplish this with JavaScript. Here is how to dynamically add a redirect url to the Image control so that when user clicks on the image, they will be redirected:

string url = getURL(); // change this to your function that gets the redirected url
if (url != "")
{
    this.Image1.Attribute.Add("onclick", "javascript:document.location.href='" + url + "'");
}

You have to run the above code in your Page_Load event handler to make it work.
