I would like to know how to pass a variable as a URL string.
            <tr bgcolor="White" width="620px" style="height: 0.3px">
                <td width="16px" height="0.3px" align="Left" visible="true">
                    <asp:Label ID="lblEventID" Visible="false" runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "EVENTID") %>'></asp:Label>
                <td width="175px" height="0.3px" align="left">
                    <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperItemDate" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# ("EditEventpage.aspx? wid=" & lblEventID)%>'
                        Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "DATEOFEVENT")%>' Font-Size="Medium"

this link shows how to use internalid

what this does is: basically you put an id on another object which houses the item...


i used this and it definitely works...

I did'nt get this part.

"chkBoxDelete.Attributes.Add("internalid", row["id"].ToString()); "
IN my case, I have a label.
What is the attribute for? and is row[Id] in my case teh eventid?  thanks

yes, use your label instead...

what this will due when its ran and concerted to html is something like this:

<span id='interalIdRealValue'><label...

it basically wraps a span around the row so you can get to it easily...

attribute means you're adding an attribute..normally you would use it to add javascript events...

such onclick

or styles...

normally: it would  make this happen:

<asp:label id='lbl' runat='server' />
if i do this in code-behind:  lbl.Attributes.Add('onclick', 'doThis();')

it changes the above to:  <asp:label id='lbl' runat='server' onclick='doThis();' />
this is because natively, the asp tags do not support javascript events or styles..so you have to add it this way...

the way .Attributes working when using internalid is that it actually generates a span with an Id
