Adding functionality to hyperlink on a DetailsView

Hi all,

   I have a DetailView control on my page and have added a hyperlink that goes to another page.  Clicking on the link opens the other page fine, but I'd like to carry over information from the DetailView to the new page.  Not sure how to insert this code.  I was going to stuff the data into Session variables before the new page opened and then populate the new page with the Session data.  How do I do this?  Or is there a better way?  Thanks!

Hi there,

Session isn't a good way in this case. You can sent via query string.



    Dim strURL As String = "test.aspx"
    Dim arrParam(1) As String
    Dim strID, strName As String
    strID = "00123"
    strName = "Tester"
    
    arrParam(0) = "id=" & strID
    arrParam(1) = "name=" & strName
    strURL &= "?" & String.Join("&", arrParam)  'Just put strURl as the link

But where exactly do I put this code in the .cs file (I know your example is in VB, but I can translate it)?

Shruks, I just tried for a while and I am lost too as to how to edit the contents of a DetailView control! You need another expert.

For me, I personally just like to use only those simple HTML control and asked my development team to do likewise. They are much simpler to understand and control than those Datagrid, DetailView, etc!

I was messing with the _ItemCommand event and it fires if I hit the UPDATE or CANCEL buttons, but not on the Hyperlink fieldtype.  I saw the definition of the event as "Fires when any clickable element on the control is clicked. "   Anyone have any ideas?

protected void DetailsView1_ItemCommand(object sender, DetailsViewCommandEventArgs e)
        {
            int i = 0;
 
 
 
        }
