PostBackUrl with a ID attached to it

Hi,

On my gridview I have a row that has an imagebutton that should take to my evaluationpage.. the problem is that I have no clue how to post the participantID
like this:
PostBackUrl="~/SurveyData/evaluation.aspx?r=ParticiapntID"   ParticiapntID = int

I've tried this:
<asp:ImageButton ID="lnkSelect2" PostBackUrl='evaluation.aspx?r=<% eval(ParticipantID) %>' runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Images/icons/pencil.gif" ToolTip="Edit Evaluation"  />
and I got this on the url: /evaluation.aspx?r=%3C%ParticipantID%%3E


any idea?

Try using eval(HttpUtility.HTMLDecode(ParticipantID))

Actually, disregard my previous post. I didn't read your question closely enough.

As per my understanding, the code for handling postbacks from the controls within GridView are handled within RowCommand event mostly although there are specific events available for editing, deleting, etc.
With the RowCommand event of the GridView, write the following code.
1. You have to set the CommandName and CommandArguemnt properties of the ImageButton. CommandName can be set at design time whiel CommandArgument must be set at Runtime.
2. Make use of DataKeyNames property of the GridView and set its value to ParticipantID which actually is your row-key. This is utilized for setting CommandArguemnt on ImageButton within RowDataBound event.
3. Finally, within RowCommand, read the value of CommandArguement and do as necessary.

Private Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound
 
	If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
 
		CType(e.Row.Cells(0).FindControl("btnDoSomething"), ImageButton).CommandArgument = GridView1.DataKeys(e.Row.RowIndex).Values(0).ToString()
 
	End If
 
End Sub
 
Private Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
 
	If e.CommandName = "DoSomething" Then
 
		Dim intParticipantId As Integer = CInt(e.CommandArgument)
		'Do anything you wish to do there
 
	End If
 
End Sub

Sorry I posted the code with VB. Check the code below:
//RowDataBound event code
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
{   
    ((ImageButton)e.Row.Cells(0).FindControl("btnDoSomething")).CommandArgument = GridView1.DataKeys(e.Row.RowIndex).Values(0).ToString();
}
 
//RowCommand evnet code
if (e.CommandName == "DoSomething")
{
    int intParticipantId = (int)e.CommandArgument;
    //Do anything you wish to do there
}

before i can answer i will like to ask another question
what is your exeact requirement of doing this

i think that you want to capture the ParticiapntID on the server side when you click on the gridview row
if i am correct then use the feature of datakeynames by setting it to participant id and then on the server side you can get the value back

set datakeyfield for gridview
<asp:GridView ID="grdview1" datakeynames="ID" ------>

while editing u can retrive id like this
string Id = grdview1.DataKeys[e.Row.RowIndex].Value.ToString();
