What's the point of casting plus as-operator? you need only one. Seems like you are more interested in the Hyperlink class. Have you tried NavigateUri?

I see. I misunderstood your question.
Perhaps you would want to try ContentStart or ContentEnd and corresponding methods.

You know i was able to do this myself. I had to cast the "Tag" property of the HyperLink to one of our custom navigation objects and there by reading a custom property. But i appreciate your help.
