Hi,
I need to display a following message using dmessages severity level. The message is displayed but the hyperlink in that message is not working properly. Instead of going to the desired message, it simply refresges the page, and disappears the message.
my code script is given below

DisplayMessage method is being called  over here
string msg=DisplayMessage();
dMessages.Controls.Add(addMessage(msg, 2));////

///////////////Body of Display Message
private string DisplayMessage()
        {
            HyperLink hlink = new HyperLink();
            hlink.NavigateUrl = "~/Admin/CreateProject.aspx";
            hlink.Text = "Create Project";
           
            string message="You have not a created a project yet. Please go to the following link to do  '" + hlink.Text + "'";

            return message;
        }

The only thing you do is setting the text value of the hyperlink to the message, not the control.

I recommend you to not use the HyperLink, but to use a standard html a tag like this:


private string DisplayMessage()
        {
            string message= String.Format("You have not a created a project yet. Please go to the following link to do  <a href=\"{0}Admin/CreateProject.aspx\">Create Project</a>", System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request.ApplicationPath);

            return message;
        }

If I display this text thorugh  a normal text box property, the hypeerlink works fine, but the problem is that I am using  "dMessages" functionality. I displaying the message using a level of sevirty 2.
The message is displayed in red., but on clicking the link within the message, the message disaapears and then nothing.
I want to go to the create Project page once the hyperlink link within the message is displayed

So you're saying the following:
- the message is displaying but the link does not work
- the messages dissapears after the click event

How do you display the message?

                    string msg=DisplayMessage();
                    dMessages.Controls.Add(addMessage(msg, 1));

the body of add message method  is this:
 private Label addMessage(string message, int severity)
        {
            Label label = new Label();
            string css = "message";
            if (severity == 0) css += " success";
            else if (severity == 1) css += " warning";
            else if (severity == 2) css += " error";
